If you've read The Zombie Survival Guide and its follow-up World War Z — currently in production as a film starring Brad Pitt — then you’re among the millions prepared for the zombie apocalypse — the theme of SA’s first-ever zombie-survivor convention. Beyond the $1,000 cash prize promised to the winner of the con’s Apocalypse Costume Contest, the eating of the minds offers screenings (George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and the to-die-for Italian sleeper Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror), a Zombie-Survivor Piñata Bash where zombies can “cripple and devour a frantic survivor,” a Brain Eating Contest and Zombie-Survivor Intestinal Stretch, plus artwork and collectibles for sale and live music by Flesh Feast, Dead Now Evil, Empirial Massacre, Misskarrage, The Sandworms, and many more. $10-$20; Noon - midnight Sat, Oct 20; San Antonio Events Center, 8111 Meadow Leaf, (210) 528-0434, zombiecontx.com.
