We had a great time at Chicago's C2E2 comics and entertainment convention this past weekend- watch for some highlights in the future on the show- and we have two more appearances this week at which you can meet and greet Sven!
First- we return to Brookfield Zoo Thursday the 12th for the 12th annual AAZK Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser benefitting the Vital Ground organization, which secures safe land in the wild for grizzlies and other animals. Dinner is served ( and you can also take it out) at the Discovery Center from 4 to 7:45 pm -pasta,bread, salads, desserts, and drinks. Lots of raffles you can takle part in, and, from 5 to 7 pm, visit with me for autographs and photos! A portion of the sale of any of our Sven merchandise will go to Vital Ground.Tickets go on sale today. You can learn more at brookfieldaazk.org.
Then, Saturday night the 14th- set your device to record if you'll be heading up to Milwaukee- to the Midwest Gaming Classic! Held this year at the Wisconsin Center, with your admisssion , you can play all sorts of pinball, arcade, console, and other games for free- and I’ll be signing autographs at 6 pm, followed by helping host their Cosplay costume contest!

The Rondo awards results will be announced later this week. Thanks to everybody who voted. Someone asked why I mention the voting, since last year there were already a record number of votes for me. The reason has been demonstrated this year- I do it to promote the overall voting in all categories, and this year, there were a record number of votes across the board in the various categories. I'm happy to promote this important event for horror fandom.
