Fans are always looking for something more to do after the show closes each day. Use this section to discuss forum member meet ups, dinners, swap meets, outings, etc.

I’m looking forward once again to the room sales. Hopefully the masterminds behind it will pick a great place for us to meet up. The one thing I look forward to at Celebration

Tiki Bars are all over Chicago, and I plan to hit a bunch of them as well as the House Of Blues!

The Second City will have a presence at Celebration, along with Star Wars-themed performances at the comedy club itself. Really looking forward to this!!

That Friday night, in what was an awesome turn of events for "perfect timing" - MUSE added Chicago to their tour schedule.

Me, along with some buds secured tickets on the floor.

Can. Not. Wait.

Will be my 3rd MUSE show. B)

Well ReedPop continues to amaze me with their lack of understanding of WTF they are doing. What ReedPop Moof Milker decided it was a good idea to have the Movie screenings during the day instead of at night like the last two Celebrations.

They're thinking people are going to want to go see the movies as a form of crowd control. WTF! Do they think we are all a bunch of stupid morons?

Actually, I think they have screened the movies at night since Celebration II. This is very disappointing. I really enjoy watching the movies with fellow fans in the evenings.

Unless you need a break from standing and walking, these screenings will be mostly empty. That's disappointing since watching the films with lots of other fans is a blast.

I've always thought it would be fun to watch with fellow SW fans, but I'm not taking time out of the con to do that during the day.

Definitely horrible planning on ReedPop's part. The only people in these screenings will be families with little kids and people wandering in off the street... :rolleyes:
