UNOFFICIAL PRE-CON THURSDAY EVENTS!!!!More details here!
MEET N GREET
THURSDAY: It may not be an official event, but it's been a long-standing event at Anime Central through the official ACen.Org Message Boards (www.acen.org/forums). If you're a message board regular or haven't even been on the page before, it's an open event going on from the lower area of the Hyatt Regency O'Hare Hotel under the "Glass Stairway". More details here and here!
THURSDAY (21+): Going into it's third year, the late night Meet n Greet offers a social event for the older con-goers. This year will be even better as it moves to a closer to the Hyatt location of Kings in the Park at Rosemont! Come chat, drink, eat, or bowl with one of the hottest parties before the big party we know as ACen itself. The event starts at 9. More details here!

SUNDAY: In addition to WWE Cosplay Day (which is now an official event at ACen for the Cosplay Photoshoot), WWE Extreme Rules is that night on Pay-Per-View. The PPV starts at 7:00 PM CST and after Anime Central, I will be holding a meet-up at Chicago City Limits in Schaumburg. I am going to try and be there around 5-6:00 (tables fill up!)
