Hey, "Office" fans, it's time to book your flights to Scranton. Over the weekend, as cast members Angela Kinsey and Brian Baumgartner visited the home of Dunder Mifflin, the organizers of the inaugural "Office" Convention announced that the event would be a go.
The convention is set for Oct. 26-28, 2007, and there's more information on this official site. Details on ticket prices and events will be coming later, but it sounds like landmark sites from the show will be involved. (For a primer, check out this quiz on "Office" geography — I had no idea there wasn't actually a Chili's in Scranton!) Here's what the organizers have to say about it:
"The Electric City" is celebrating the best comedy on TV by inviting Dunder-heads to converge on Northeast Pa. for a full weekend of pretending to hang out with other peoples' co-workers. Think of it like a Star Trek convention but with nerds wearing Dwight Schrute glasses instead of Spock ears.
Ain't no party like a Scranton party, indeed.
