GGB LA – Wondercon Meetup!

GGB LA – Wondercon Meetup!

This weekend was Wondercon, so on Saturday, March 26th,the women of the Los Angeles Chapter of Geek Girl Brunch met up for drinks and tacos at Rosa Mexicano. Located near the Los Angeles Convention Center, we knew it would be the perfect location for brunchettes with tired con feet!


We decided to have dinner instead of brunch, since most con-goers seem to skip breakfast and lunch… well to be honest no one ever seems to remember to eat at cons. Too much to do!


Wondercon meant that some of our attendees were in costume! We had an Inara from Firefly, River from Doctor Who and Nik Nak, an original character from that brunchette’s book: Keeper of Things.

Over sangrias, mojitos and quesadillas, the brunchettes shared stories of the con floor as well as talked about their favorite fandoms.

We had so much fun this time that it was hard to leave! Next up: Game of Thrones Brunch. See you in April!
