Boing Boing certainly knows how to craft a difficult-to-resist pitch for its "three-day extravaganza of hands-on wonder": Start with a name like "Weekend of Wonder," add guests like Disney veteran John Edgar Park, puzzle designer Michael Borys and hot-rod artist Coop, and top it off with a musical performance by Adventure Time's Hunson Abadeer the Lord of Evil and Marceline the Vampire Queen (or, rather, Martin Olson and Olivia Olson, who play them). See?
Planned for Sept. 18-20 at the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, California, Weekend of Wonder sounds like a good bet for fans of DIY tech, art, puzzles and, naturally, Boing Boing. Organized with Baby Tattoo, the event promises workshops, demonstrations, exhibits and an alternate-reality adventure. Oh, and food.
