If you're already into glittery vampires and werewolves who "phase" whenever they please, then you need no convincing to attend the Official Twilight Convention, which rolls into town this Saturday and Sunday at The Westin Park Central, 12720 Merit Drive. It should come as no surprise that this massive gathering of Twilight fans will be bursting at the seams with events, such as the Volturi Vampire Ball Saturday night, complete with awards for costumes, dancing, and centerpieces; all kinds of Twilight-related vendors; autographs and photo ops with the stars themselves; trivia competitions; panel discussions and more. But, let's say, for argument's sake, that you're not a Twilight fankid. Maybe you don't see what all the fuss is about, and perhaps you think you know of better places to be Saturday night. Well, you obviously are not yet aware that Peter F'n Facinelli himself will be present at this convention. Yes. Mike Dexter of Can't Hardly Wait. Jimmy of Six Feet Under. Real-life husband of Kelly from (the original) Beverly Hills, 90210. If you don't go for the vampires, please, go for the Facinelli. Tickets start at $20 and vary based on package desired.
