Hi, and thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately Bedrock City will not be setting up at C2E2 this year. I am a warm weather boy, and the idea of driving to Chicago in February (even with global warming) scares the heck out of me.

So what you are saying is you are just gunna fly up and hang with us in the bar again? :baiting:

Also this is some things to keep in mind for your first con...and it depends on how many days.

1. there is a lot to take in so download the free C2E2 app. In that app you can make a list of people you want to see and where they are. Same thing with panel times which the app will send notifications an hour before time.

2. I don't buy the first thing I see!!!! I take a card and mark what aisle its in and come back later ( unless its limited or its a great deal). remember you don't want to spend all your money on the first day.

3. If you buy comics from dealers/artist its good to have a comic portfolio box (or 2 or 5 like me) which you can by at any LCS or from @HOTFLIPS at the show ( i recommend @HOTFLIPS ive bought from them while at the show and they beat the other dealers there).

4.bring a backpack with snacks and a refillable bottle!!!!! it also carries your comic boxes from @HOTFLIPS Also this is a PRO TIP... if you buy lunch in the cafe and by a fountain soda refills are free ALL DAY!

5.Grab a free program if you don't use the app. it has all the info you need. 

6. Get there early! show starts at 10 so be there at 9...the line sucks especially on Saturday ( boooooooooooo on Saturday to many people, friday is the BEST DAY HANDS DOWN!!!!)

7.Have fun walk down very asile look at all the dorks people in cosplay.

8. stop by and see your cgc friends @MrBedrock  @Dale Roberts @jadams @HOTFLIPS and say Hi! ( is this an ad for Hotflips?) SORRY IF I MISSED ANYONE!! these are the only people i know form the boards and they don't know me which is fine!

9.Pay attention to the weather the week of the show. Chicago can have great weather or bad weather this time of year. also coat check is very reasonable!

If Ive missed something anyone can chime in or you can PM me and we can talk to and or meet up at the show.

Thanks for such a detailed response.  I am excited for sure.  I am attending the whole weekend or at least Friday and Saturday.  I had the app downloaded already and added the people you suggested, that were on there, to my current list.

Will @HOTFLIPS have any Mylites?  This Diamond backorder is killing me. 

If they dont, send me a PM my LCS has plenty. I could bring it with me.

Kyle and crew will be at the show and believe they have a whack of supplies (they can likely bring extras too).

Thanks. Have you ever had them press books for you?  I see they will be pressing books during the show.

from abc 7 chicagao

The Chicago area could see snow up to six inches of snow this week, as another winter storm is expected to push though the area.”

Anyone here from Chicago? Are you hearing differently?

Weather forecasts always seem to be overblown.  It's like the clickbait of the nightly news and a sensationalization of what's generally expected here in Chicago.

With that said, snow apparently on Tuesday/Wednesday (up to 6 inches by most reports).  Cold weather on Thursday through Sunday.  I expect roads to be completely clear, but you'll definitely need to bring a jacket.

I don't play the CPR game much.  However I've heard good things about Kyle.

Looks like most of the snow is going to Indiana now. Things are looking much better. This is Chicago though, so stay tuned

Add Lucio Parrillo to this list as well with Scorpion Comics.
