OTHER PERTINENT DETAILS: Cosplay encouraged! Kids welcome!

OH, HEY, HERE’S A FACEBOOK EVENT! YOU DON’T HAVE TO RSVP, BUT IT WOULD BE SUPER HELPFUL IF YOU DID!

Steep & Thorny is a private club! To get in, let the nice person at the door know that you are there for the X-Men party!

There will be a cash bar with alcoholic (adults only, with ID) and non-alcoholic (everyone) beverages! ADULTS: Please note that this is an all-ages event. If you get drunk and disorderly, we will kick your ass out.

SO MANY THANKS to The Steep & Thorny Way to Heaven for donating the use of their space for this event. If you’re local–or a frequent visitor–and a fan of weird and wonderful art and performance, you should make a point of checking out what they do when they’re not hosting us!

    Hope you survive the experience (no Con Plague)!

    Between the X-perts and Herald: Lovecratft and Tesla I have double the reason to go! Go local comics folk!

    I’ve been trolling around on the street view of Google Maps looking for the meet-up site. If I’m at the Dirty Bridge Bistro, where is the meet-up relative to it? Anyone?

  6. Noah says:

    Really excited for this! I am a fellow PDXer, I was wondering if y’all were gonna do a live podcast. Looks like it’s gonna be a thing!!! Woo.

  7. […] the hosts of my favorite podcast, Rachel & Miles X-Plain the X-Men, will both be conducting a live episode at the convention, and hosting an after-hours meetup away […]

  8. Kelvin says:

    Sadness, frustration & longing that life does not facilitate a trip for the fam to Portland this year. Look forward to the live podcast. Best of luck and fun times yawl!

    SLC-Con next year? ComicKaze?

    • Rachel says:

      If you can convince them to bring us as guests, sure! That’s the only way it’s really financially feasible to do many shows outside of the Pacific Northwest.

      • Kelvin says:

        I put Kirby Krackle in for SLC and they’ve been invited this year, (sadly I won’t be there either – things and stuff) so I’ll keep bugging them about you too.

        Speaking of KK, enjoy that show for me too, K?
