The unofficial Wizard World Chicago Activities Thread

Since it's this weekend, I motion we should discuss possible DW group activities for after hours. Since the con closes at 6 of Friday and Saturday and 5 on Sunday, those of us who are not already committed to things should consider doing something.

You know, networking. Hanging out. Having fun after a hard day's work of pimping and shameless self promotions.

I nominate Knuckles to take charge of this!

Or, you know, someone who knows Chicago better than I do.

I second this motion, as I am pretty much a loser and normally spend the evenings after the convention in my hotel room watching tv and boring my girlfriend.

I'll probably run into some of you in Knuckles. A few of my friends are planning on playing flip-cup in the lobby until we're shut down. So if you see us, you're welcome to join in.

Always up for a DW gathering.

Not making it in until Friday night, but I'll bring the kiddie pool to serve as a cooler for Saturday if need be. (The package store is just up the street in the mini-mall/shopping center...I love Knuckles, but it's not cheap and they do shut you down eventually.)

If we're talking dinner, it'll be a crapshoot. Giordano's is great but there's going to be a wait and their delivery time is hit and miss. (And the waitresses at Knuckles get pissy when you bring your pizzas into the bar. ) The greek place we went a couple of years back is now just a bar. If you don't care about your arteries or colesterol(sp) level, may I suggest Auggie's Doggies?

Auggies Doggies sounds good to me. Now..... when are we doing this?

THere's a concert on Friday night that I will probably be at, which starts at 10pm, but other than that I haven't made plans yet.

I know absolutely nothing about Chicago, but I'm up for hanging out with anybody from Digital Webbing. Give a time and location and I'll show up.

I'll be in Artist's Alley throughout the show, table 3166, promoting my new book Pogrom!

You guys should stop and say hi

I'm sure there will be a lot of great after parties to attend on Friday and Saturday!

everyone is going to be at Knuckles...

i'm talking everyone- it's to a point where you cannot move.

It's a good meeting point- but since i live here now- I will no doubt take the party out into the city-Actually - CORRECTION

I will be taking the party to the city.You could too- it's easy- From ROSEMONT take the blue line towards the city (that's away from Ohare airport) get off @ the Damen stop or if you're feeling adventurous- Division.it's about a 20 min. train ride into the fold.

be prepared- the CTA is dangerous- the train will feel like it's going to leave the tracks-

I recommend FLASH TACO @ Damen- the tacos ever @ 3am.

5 points aka Wicker park is a mecha of everything you'd want-clubs,bars,shitholes,trend spots,live bands.then there's always Wrigleyville if there's a Cubs game-roscoe pee co train village...who knows.I got friends coming in from outta town so we will be doing it up-

Wrigleyville is RIDICULAZ if you are looking for that. Think-girls gone wild. (no joke)

on Saturdays- there are places that don't close until 4 -5 am...

it's almost taboo.and since it's Lolapollza weekend- i'm sure you can extend that mayhem for another couple of hours-

I will be in artist alley promoting Bloodrayne-Cockfight- and do sketches-and to find moments of soberity.

i think i'm 3239 or something like that.

feel free to stop by- I can give you tons of recommendations of places -

OH the places you will go--

ahahah.

M.

I am loathe to use the word "awesome" in reference to this, but it's a concert that is going on. Apparently the person I'm staying with really likes them and wants to go, so I figure I should go. Granted, I told her that if anything con-related comes up I'll go to that instead, but at present this is my plan:
