The Seattle Convention Center hosts the Emerald City ComiCon this weekend, which means we’ll be seeing more than usual number of costumes and cosplayers around the Hill over the next few days. Tickets to the ECCC are sold out, but you won’t need a con pass to crash these Hill-based Comicon adjunct events: Mint Condition Issue #3 art show opening on Friday at Ltd Gallery, the 2nd Annual Superhero Ball at Baltic Room  on Friday, Late Night Nerds comedy and variety show at Raygun Lounge ALSO on Friday,  and ECCC After Party at Q Nightclub on Sunday.

Moisture Festival takes over the Broadway Performance Hall weekends starting this Friday through April 13th. Read our preview of Broadway Hall’s burlesque, comedy, and circus performances here.

The regional premiere of the play The Edge of Our Bodies opens at Washington Ensemble Theatre on Friday and continues through April 14th. This one-woman show reveals the “brutal realities of young adulthood and the challenging pull between the need to connect to others and the desire to disappear.”

Like friendly chess, Twin Peaks, and cherry pie? Go to Arabica Lounge on Friday evening for Twin Peaks Chess night.

APRIL Festival literary events this week culminate in an Independent Publishing Expo at Richard Hugo House  (11a – 5p) followed by the APRIL closing party at Vermillion starting at 8p, both on Saturday.

If gin is your alcohol of choice, get a ticket to Sunday’s Gin Iron Bartender Competition at Liberty, when bartenders compete to create the best gin cocktail. Plus there will be punch! We predict punch to make a comeback in summer 2014.

Bring your bingo blotter to Hillside Bar on Sunday at 7p for Still Drunk Sunday Bingo.
