Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2)

While you're still reeling from the news that there will be a "Star Wars" movie released every year for the next five years (beginning in 2015), head over to the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2), where you can share your love of comics, video games, movies, TV and fantasy with other fans. Writers, artists, actors (Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar are coming), producers and others who have cultivated the phenomenon of this culture also participate in the expo, hosting autograph sessions, panels and meet and greets.
<br><br><b>
Why go: </b>You can be assured of a pure pop culture experience, as C2E2 does not allow bootlegs of any kind, according to the expo's website. And before you even think about bringing a replica weapon, just don't.
<br><br><b>
Reconsider:</b> You don't want all that geekiness to rub off on you.
