If you are in the Baltimore area and still haven't gotten a special something for your special geek for Valentines Day, you may want to take them to the sci-fi, fantasy, horror, super heroes convention to be held that weekend in Timonium. They describe Farpoint as an annual gathering for fans of all genres of imaginative fiction. The focus is on Fandom.
You can have lasting memories of this romantic geek weekend by having yours and your beloved's picture taken with the Batmobile. If not that, there is always the Tardis. If you are really game, there is a Swing Dance Workshop with Iver Cooper on Sunday.
As for the rest of Farpoint, the guests include Alan Dean Foster, author of Star Trek – Into the Darkness, Melissa McBride, "Carol Peletier," in Walking Dead, and Phil LaMarr, "Baxter Stockman," Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/"Aquaman," Young Justice/ “Wilt,” Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. There are various panel tracks. Science track will include a panel on “The History, Art and Science of Making Beer”. Under Special track, learn how maximize the value of your spare cardboard at “Costuming on the Cheap”. The Media track has “The New Doctor: A Major Change of Prescription”. And there is the Masquerade & Ten Forward Dance Party.
