Hey Everyone,

Looking forward to seeing everyone....

Just letting everyone know that the restaurant in the hotel is no longer Alberto's. It's a burger place now.

And the last one I can show right now...

Scifi Card P51 with art by fan favorite George Webber will be available in the admission packet.



There's still one to come, but it hasn't arrived yet so I can't show it off yet.

Do we have a volunteer photo-taker for the show?
Someone willing to take and post photos here on Cardtalk and the blog.
There used to be several pics posted along with show reports.
Seems the last few years we have been lacking in that area.
Perhaps there is a volunteer willing to do a video and post it on Youtube?
A good way to promote Chicago and Philly. Thumb Up

Still waiting to hear what K and J is donating for Friday's door prize drawing...

But I can say Scifi Cards is donating 2 inner boxes from Star Wars 2018 Masterwork for the Saturday Door Prize Drawing. Drawing will take place about 2:30, must be present to win.

Good question...

I don't know how much space the new restaurant has, but it can't be less than what we dealt with last show while they were remodeling.

I've got to each somewhere, and I hate to get out between show days, so I'm going to say anyone is welcome to join me at Burger Theory for dinner.

Nothing fancy, just good company and hopefully a good burger. I've heard no reviews on the new offering.

Ed

I'm down with that Ed. I'm actually staying at the hotel Friday night since hubby has been working late.

Can always order from Grub Hub as well. Just a thought

Our final promo is being shipped to me to the hotel, but I finally got some images to share...

Thank You 5FINITY for the Mandy Down Under exclusive promo!




So that's 5 promos at the door for the price of admission, which is FREE!

Limit 1 promo pack per person per day. All promos are while supplies last.
