March 30-April 1 — Spy Con — Atlanta, Georgia

It’s time to get our spy skills on! Or . . . we can just walk around and look at cool stuff. The theme that weekend is James Bond, so if you’re a fan of 007 they’ll have some memorabilia to observe. For example, a replica of the Lotus car in “For Your Eyes Only” will be there.  Major guests include Lana Wood, Trina Parks, Victoria Price, and more.  Major events include a spy school, casino night, and more!
