    I'll be attending with a rather large group of friends, but we'll be running around solo (No, not Thom) throughout the weekend. I'll be one of the random people counting in the air in front of Vendors tables, all the while drooling. We've already got hotel rooms if someone wants to hang out up 'dere.

    Hey all. I'll be driving in from Des Moines to attend WW. I'll be there on Saturday, and then to the Museum of Science and Industry on Sunday to see the ILM models. I looked at your calendar, and it looks like you don't have anything planned for the con, even though some of your members will be attending. What gives? Especially with Steve Sansweet in attendance, I would think you'd be doing something. Let me know if you make any plans.

    We have an annual Wizard World dinner at the local Giordano's, usually on the Saturday of the con. More details will be forthcoming. I think it would also be cool to make a post-dinner trip to Hala Kahiki (excellent Hawaiian bar) in River Grove.

    Hawaiian Bar?? I'm already having visions of Bosh singing "Tiny Bubbles" to the crowd after one too many drinks in Tiki Cups. :oops:

    My father and I were thinking about taking Jan Duursema out to dinner, so Would you guys mind if we invited her along? If you know her, she pretty much created Aayla Secura and Is a Star Wars comic book artist. Shes also REALLY nice.

    While I second the idea of going out for drinks after the con (hopefully I'll be able to attend this year) I feel it necessary to warn against Hala Kahiki. It is indeed a great bar, and it's closeby, but it is absolutely MOBBED on weekends (and just about every night in the summer, actually.) Groups of a mere four persons usually have a 25-30 minute wait before being seated, and parties of six or more can expect to wait for over an hour. The ables themselves aren't made for more than six, so the group would have to be split up throughout the bar.

    All in all, it's an interesting idea filled with logistical peril.

    On the other hand, there are no shortage of hotel bars in the area, nearly all of which I'm certain will be filled with fellow 'con attendees.

    FlippingYodaCola, why on earth would you ask if we minded you bringing a "professional Star Wars-anything" out to Dinner with us. There are no small parts in SW....except for that one guy, in that one movie who played that one part that got killed. I think we can find SOMETHING interesting to talk about with a SW comic book artist. Hmmmm, lemme see....

    I agree, 'twould be most cool. I've talked to her at past conventions and she is really nice. In fact, she had asked about our t-shirts. I should see if I can scrounge one up.

    So the dinner must be at 7:30 since it's on the the border announcements area. Is there another thread that I cannot find with more info, or is this it?

    femme, unfortunately at this point, there is not another thread.
    But rest assured, the details are being worked out and will be posted soon.

    Sithspawn you people are evil. Spend time with my aunt and uncle whom I never get to see, or go out with Jan Duursema and a group of fellow fanatics...tough, tough choice, there. I might join you for a little while.

    Is Jan going to be at the con then? I haven't seen anything about SW comic artists/writers/etc on the WW guest list.
