It is hard to believe that Dragon Con 2013 has already come and gone. For those like me who are still in denial, this weekend is the perfect chance to keep the party going with two great events that cater to the con crowd.
On Friday, September 6, Secretroom hosts Sith in September at Jungleclub. This Star Wars sci-fi themed party is the perfect excuse to keep the costumes out of storage for one more weekend and continue to party in a galaxy far, far away. The night will be hosted by Steampunk Boba Fett and will feature performances by Defenzemechanizm (Orlando) as the Sith Queen at midnight, and Vita DeVoid (Tampa) with a burlesque Princess Amidala show at 1 a.m. Themed Go-Go dancers will move along to EDM and 80s spun by DJs Jennocide and black Sunshine, who both performed at Dragon Con 2013. There will also be an out-of-this-world art show from Art Etak, and a costume contest with $250 in cash and prizes at 2 a.m.
Sith in September will take place at Jungleclub on Friday, September 6. Cover is $10 in costume or with a 2013 Dragon Con badge, $13 without, or only $5 with Dragon Con 2013 Staff badge. Jungleclub is located at 2115 Faulkner Rd. Atlanta, GA 30324, located behind the Dollhouse, and there is plenty of free parking. The party is 18 and up, 21 to drink, and it goes from 11 p.m. until 3 a.m. For more information, visit Secretroom.net and find the event page on Facebook.

But the weekend doesn't end there. On Saturday, con party gurus CON*tourage host CON*tinuation: The DragonCon 2013 After Party at The Shelter. Produced by MarksterCon, this con theme party gives attendees a chance to wear their favorite con costume again and compete in the costume contest at midnight. DJP and DJ Ghost will spin, and the Girls of the Con will be on site with their newly released calendar for 2014.
CON*tinuation: The DragonCon 2013 After Party will take place at The Shelter on Saturday, September 7. Cover is $5 with a Dragon Con 2013 badge, or $10 without. The Shelter is located at 2101 Tula St. NW, 30309, and there is plenty of free parking. The Shelter is 21 and up, and the party goes from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. For more information, visit MarksterCon on Facebook and The Shelter online.
