My geek credentials are seriously lacking, but even I can tell that this weekend is pretty much a star-loving geek’s dream right here in River City. With a capital T, and that rhymes with W, and that stands for Wheaton.
Friday and Saturday it’s From the Land Beyond, Sacramento’s horror and sci-fi show. Meet Wil Wheaton and Doug Jones, and (for your Battlestar geeks out there) not only THE Richard Hatch, but also Chief (and Final Fiver) Galen Tyrol himself Aaron Douglas!
Sunday it’s the one-day-only Sacramento Comic, Toy and Anime show, featuring an encore appearance by Wil Wheaton and none other than Billy West, star of Futurama and star/ruiner of Ren & Stimpy (depending on whom you talk to).
Looks like both of these events are held frequently, but I thought this guest list was worth mentioning. Note to the organizers of these events: Please see about scheduling LeVar Burton one of these years. My kids are big “Reading Rainbow” fans and meeting LeVar would blow their minds.
