If not Gibson’s, then why not approach Maria’s or Capitol Grill.  Also, there are two brew pubs near the park that have great food and may room to increased crowd occupancy. 

Cheers, Cat

We're discussing all kinds of options, Cat. Nothing concrete yet, however. I'll let people know once we come to some agreement (thumbsu

I’m not going, so I’m not sure my vote matters, but Capitol Grill would be a great option. Not sure if they have a back room, but if the party was more modest and they could seat you the food is great.

I doubt its going to end.   It's Just this year WW conflicts with Reed Philly, so a lot of dealers had to make a hard choice,

     Myself included 

 Next year, Hopefully there will be less conflict, Personally. I had to skip the two best WW shows phlly and Chicago due to conflicts

It's not ending, Steve, just put on hiatus for this year. There will be some kind of get together on that Saturday, but most likely informal. I'll pass along more once I have more info (thumbsu

And with FanExpo being the same weekend as WWC this year, I miss out on my favourite show of the year as well, and on the tenth anniversary of Niks passing. :(

 Too many shows that same weekend 

   I conflicted out, and will miss the show for the 1st time in 10 years 

           and Expo Canada looks like a monster show 

    Even Mamoa  split his appearance 

   between WW and fan expo 

  Also Expo has an AMAZING  Creators list I wish WW would have focused more on the creator guests,

I really wish they’d shift this show even a week earlier. mid-August would be so much easier.

It’s unfortunate that the date conflicts are divvying up dealer commitments, but it happens.  My brokering deals is limited to GA at smaller regional cons, so while not setting up at Wizard I’ll be taking the road of least resistance, which is Amtrak to Chicago.  

On the plus side, the dining options in Rosemont around the Donald Stephen’s convention center are excellent. Whether this year’s con lives up to personal expectations and remains profitable compared with past Chicago Wizards is the big question.  Some comic dealers have been discussing an apparent drop off in foot traffic in recent years, which may be an indication of Wizard’s attendance losing ground. I’d expect that to be one of the highlighted topics of conversation over dinner if something impromptu is organized at the con.
