DrawnCon - A great excuse for shenanigans

For those of you who have been paying any attention, Horse-News is on a Con-Coverage spree. With 7 weeks of cons back to back, it's going to be one hell of a Fall. Now before we flood your eyeholes with Nightmare Nights goodness this weekend, we have an announcement about an upcoming con in Boston that you probably have heard us mention before - DrawnCon Season 2.

They finally got us a press-release thingy for you to know what they're about, and why we're using them as an excuse to get obliterated in Boston this November.

Check it out below, and if you're a New Englander, be sure to come join in out shenanigans next month.

Current plans involve all Irish pubs in a 3-mile radius, and harrassing Marky Mark Wahlberg at his burger joint.
