Scenes From The CBR Bar @ C2E2

Yo. So last week, a bunch of us spent time covering the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, which most folks just call C2E2. As part of the show, Jonah “Uncle Moneybags” Weiland sponsored the bar at the Hyatt, making everyone who knew me for the weekend do some variation on that “So the CBR Bar is an open bar, right?” joke in my presence. Here are some photos from over the weekend:

Here’s the core of CBR’s full-timers who were at the show (L-R): Videographer Alex Kropinak, me, Reviews Editor/Staff Writer Steve Sunu and Staff Writer Shaun Manning (who was actually at McCormick for a totally different convention but spent his evening hours drinking with us and eating out in Chinatown). There were a ton of other rad folks chipping in on the site over the weekend, and you can see an index of stories here.

Team blog-o-sphere was out in full force as well, and here’s a pic of Robot 6ers Michael May (whom I saw across the con floor several times but never got to talk to – sorry, Michael! – and whose great photo diaries of the con are well worth your time) and Brigid Alverson (who crushed it as part of team panel coverage) alongside Matthew J. Brady (whose great Warren Peace Sings The Blues I don’t comment on or link to often enough).

Here are some other pics taken on a busy Saturday night:





God only knows what was going through those bartender’s heads as they had to wear our logo while serving drinks to guys in TRON costumes.

Oh, and because I had nowhere else to put it, here’s the only cosplay photo I took all weekend:

See y’all next year.
