Today, ComplexCon announced its 2019 “First We Feast Lagoon” which includes some of the best eats from the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, D.C., New York, Chicago, London and beyond.  As a tribute to “Love Thy Neighborhood,” the feast sponsored by Jameson Irish  Whiskey celebrates the distinct tastes, people and places that make every neighborhood across the country unique.

Returning to the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center November 2 and 3, guests of the fourth annual ComplexCon festival can also experience famous dishes from restaurants and chefs featured on Complex’s top food shows, including appearances by Hot Ones host Sean Evans and The Burger Show host chef Alvin Cailan.

Burgerlords will be on-site serving up the nostalgia of fast food for the modern-day diet. Inspired by the legacy of Los Angeles fast food,  they are paying homage to the tradition of eating out for a new generation of diners with their fun burger pop ups.

Uncle Paulie’s Deli will be selling an exclusive colorway of their infamous caps inside of a custom built, full scale deli, complete with a dunk tank.
