Geek Bar Chicago hosted the first 2015 Pre-party for one of Chicago’s biggest comic book conventions – C2E2. Heroes from the local cosplay area were called to assist Geek Bar Chicago in eating free food and meeting great artists on the 24th of January. Over 60 Heroes and their sidekicks answered the call at 7pm that night, with many others that filtered in and out until the bar opened back up to general onlookers and geeks desiring to game, talk, drink and rabble rouse until the early morn. David Zoltan, Geek Bar founder and self proclaimed Geek Fleet Admiral was ultimate hero at the event by producing 4 excellent artists, a drawing contest, costume contest and wings, chicken strips, mini-burgers and ribs on the house for heroes with a hunger. Among other Notables in attendance were Paul Heid and Nyq Bonaventura – 2 of the 3 founders of ‘We Are Cosplay’- 3rd co-founder Angelique Starr Rickhoff was being a hero in another area of the city at the time. Elliot Serrano was also there, a famous Geek tweeter and local word smith. Artists Gene Ha, Art Baltazar, Mike Norton and Tim Seeley were entertaining, jovial and SNL worthy during their bantering with the babes and bros on scene. Costume contest winners were Jenny Prado and Jonnie Lee with their costuming acumen and fantastic cosplay prowess! Fun abounded, great cosplay exhibited and as always C2E2 and Geek Bar Chicago succeeded! LOVED IT!!!!! TOTAL ROCKSTAR RATING!!!
