War Paint is coming out in April?!?!?!? Can I preorder? Will there be a tour? (she says, a day after telling you to take it easy for a while)

If I still lived in Chicago, I'd be there in a heartbeat! Sadly, I live 4000 miles and an ocean away, so, unless the free airplane ticket fairy waved its magic wand, I can't go. :(
I look forward to seeing your photos!

I'm checking to see if I can find someone to come with me. But, if I can't, I might just come by myself because this evening sounds so amazing to me!!! :)

You should come either way! I'm traveling to the event from La Crosse, WI--and I will know a few of the other attendants--but we could be random LJ Users who are both Midwest Girls interested in mutual awesomeness who might become friends.

That sounds like fun! You're doing the dinner and the performance, right? Where are you staying in Chicago? I don't know the area where the event is at all. I love meeting new people :) And my boyfriend thinks that I should go to have some "me" time since I never get any.

Yes! I am attending both the attendance and the dinner and I am staying with some friends, who are also going, in Chicago through Monday. There must be some hotels in the area--or, I don't know how you feel about couch surfing--but considering the guests of honor, there is bound to be someone willing to open their home up for an evening to nice lady from Wisconsin.

I will be doing a zip in, attend show, zip out the next day thing for this event, if I go. I have the money, I love road trips, and I'd LOVE to meet Kyle Cassidy in person :) It's just that I have a lot of other trips this year and a trip to Ecuador next year, so SHOULD I spend the money? Probably not. But WILL I? Maybe :) I'll let you know so we can meet up if I do. I also might have a friend that I can crash with while there. I have a couple of people that I can contact. We'll see.

I'm going! Ticket is bought, hotel is reserved, and now I need to find someone to do my hair close to the event :) Are you wearing a costume? I'm wearing a Bettie Page store dress.

Also, I could totally pick you up on the way to Chicago if you don't want to ride alone.

Thanks for the offer! I am going to drive solo though, considering I am not returning until Monday and I have some different stops planned on the way there and back--are you on Facebook, because it would maybe be a way to network in finding a place to stay somewhere close to the event.

Wow. This may be worth the drive up from St. Louis.
