What did you miss this weekend? On Friday, we ventured out of Orange County to Adultcon at the Los Angeles Convention Center followed by a performance from The Vandals and Assorted Jelly Beans at the Glass House in Pomona. In remembrance of Sept. 11, we participated in the 9/11 Heroes Run at Hidden Valley Park in Irvine. Saturday was also a big day for roller derby as we watched the OC Roller Girls take on teams from San Diego. This weekend was also the opening of the It's A Wrap: 15th Annual Halloween Costume Shoppe. If you're still figuring out what costume to wear, this is the place to check out for a piece of Hollywood history (pictured).
