The CBR Bar @ C2E2!

Last night, the CBR staff kicked off our C2E2 schmoozing by knocking a few back at the CBR Bar at the Hyatt, connected to McCormick Place. There’s a bit of signage here and there for the site, but the best part is this crazy big backdrop.

I snapped the above pick of some folk who were hanging out at the bar, and when I explained who I was, the young lady on the right said, “Oh! I know Jonah. Tell him Toni said hi!”

Last night I e-mailed Mr. Weiland to pass the message along. His response? “Hrmmm, doesn’t sound familiar.” Mysteries abound in Chicago!

Look for more photos of the show and the bar on this space over the weekend, and be sure to stop by for a beer tonight or tomorrow if you’re at the show.

Edit: As I was sitting here in the McCormick place food court posting this image, I heard a voice behind me say, “Dude! That’s me!” It was the young man above, now decked out in a C2E2 staff shirt. I love cons.

Classy guy there. Did he also tell you why he was throwing up gang signs when you took his picture?
