In the ‘Dead’ of Summer


There’s a lot of outdoor activity going on. In many places the season is short and sweet and there were a number of major things going on in the ‘undead’ world this past week. Many more events are still yet to come.


For starters, this event rocks. I followed a number of celebrity posts regarding this event and have resigned myself to attend this event in 2016. It just gets cooler by the year in my opinion. Having the chance to see the cast members from The Walking Dead (which would be my ultimate fan experience) as well as sitting in on forums talking about the production of shows such as The Big Bang Theory and Last Man on Earth (one of my favorites too) along with Batman vs. Superman would be an awesome experience as well as people watching; seeing all the dedicated fans in costume.

Besides that event which could easily take up a whole weekend there are plenty of other sites to see in San Diego. Some things are completely free as well.

Zombie Pub Crawl- Atlanta:

Yes. If it’s anything like the Minneapolis version, I know it’s something to take note of. If you’re willing to travel or already live in the area, I’d advise getting tickets for this. In my opinion the zombie fan base ranks among those of Star Wars and other sci-fi genre cohorts. To be as dedicated to the subject and be amongst so many who also are is a privilege none should take lightly. I know they’ll have a good, dead time already. This event takes place the weekend of July 25th. Note: Atlanta has plenty of options for good eats. Plan on skipping your diet until you return home. You’ve been warned.


Events hosted by Room Escape Adventures poses scenarios about escaping from zombies from July 18- Aug 16th in a CLUE-like format. You and 11 others get to figure out the best route possible. Again this is something I’d definitely sign up for. It’d make a fun date night (see if your partner has the skills to stay alive!) or if you’re brave enough to see what you have on your own. Again, you’d be around people who are equally interested in the genre. Either way, sounds fun!

As you can see there are tons of ‘undead’ things going on around the country. I’d suggest using Google to get an idea for planning your own outing if you’re not nearby by either of these locations- save for San Diego’s Comic Con which you can start planning now for 2016.

For all you fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead, season 6’s trailer is out- check it out here. I don’t know about you, I don’t want to rush summer but… October’s looking better than ever.

I hope you’re able to enjoy the weather no matter where you are on the round ball. 🙂 Wishing a Happy Weekend to you all!

I'm a hardworking thirty-something who likes to read various topics, write, coupon, garden, hang out with my almost human dog, sit-and-do-absolutely-nothing, and most importantly live, happily :) In June 2006, I survived an SAH (subarachnoid brain hemorrhage = brain aneurysm) and after my recovery and a few years passed I set out to write- something that I thought I'd never do well again. Most who know me expected I'd write about that experience but instead I chose something a little different. I'm now the author of an apocalyptic, zombie-thriller titled 'Affliction' which will be published by DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C and will be out by the year's end. Whether you read 'Affliction' or not (I would hope you will) my goals for everyone, including you would be to follow your heart, set some goals and follow through accordingly- otherwise you'll never truly know how happy you can be.
