Chicago Comic Collectors Dinner916

Moderator The_Watcher private msg quote post Address this user
Every year during Wizard World Chicago, collectors of all things comic get together to indulge in food, drink and song (okay, maybe not song). This year's dinner is on Saturday August 20th at 8 PM at Gibsons Steakhouse, directly across the street from the convention center. In previous years, attendees had the distinct pleasure to meet and talk to such great comic luminaries as:

Neal Adams
Bernie Wrightson
Joe Jusko
Maggie Thompson
Michele Nolan


This is an evening for collectors of comics (new and old), OA, pulps, BLBs to meet and hang out, indulging our inner comic geek. It's an opportunity for anyone to show off pieces from their collection, things they picked up at the con that day, or drool over once-in-a-lifetime books like:

Action 1
Tec 27
Comics from the top GA pedigrees (Church, Larson, San Fran, etc)


Details: Dinner is Saturday Aug 20th at 8 PM. It'll be held in the Stephens Room (also referred to as the Fireplace Room). Doors will open at 7 PM to allow attendees to get properly liquored up before dinner It's a cash bar, so don't blow all that money on comics. The menu consists of the following:

House salad

( Your choice of one of the following: )
Center Cut Filet Mignon 10oz
WR Chicago Cut 22oz
Spicy Niman Ranch Pork Chop
Broiled Salmon
Spit Roasted Chicken

Baked Potato
Vegetable Combination Platter


**If you're attending and you're a vegetarian or have a food allergy, please PM me so I can pass that information along to Gibsons**

The cost is $85 per person. It's quite a bit of money, I know, but you're getting Flintstones-sized cuts of beef, an opportunity to see and talk to comic book icons, and meet fellow collectors at one of Chicago's premiere steakhouses

Payment can be done via Paypal (PM me for details)

Feel free to PM me with any questions

This is by far my favorite dinner of the year! I hope many of you can make it. I think we are at 30 people already with special guests.

Borock saved my life one year by giving me the key to his hotel room. I'll never forget it.

Even in the room next door, Greggy's snoring was loud enough to rattle the bedlamps?
