Official Pensacon Launch Party!

By now, you've heard about Pensacon, our very own Comic-Con here on the Gulf Coast.

Well this year, we're hitting you with the hottest, most buzz-worthy Pensacon launch party on Friday, Feb 27th - in honor of Tiny Lister, aka Deebo! The event, simply titled "Friday" is a West Coast themed bash inspired by everyone's favorite film, "Friday." After all, "Its Friday, you ain't got no job...and you ain't got shit to do!"
