- An event called Quatre Con - a "horror, sci-fi, fantasy and supernatural" convention - looks like it's trying to get off the ground. There were Quatre Cons scheduled for January 2010 in Vallejo CA and then April 2010 in Sacramento that have since been scrapped. Now they are advertising one for November 2010 in New Orleans that looks like a big one if it happens (Romero, Sid Haig, Malcolm McDowell, zombie pub crawl and more). So, we'll be monitoring this one. Good luck to them, a new NOLA con would be great. Quatre Con website is here.
