If there's one TV show that's great to watch around Halloween, it's...
The CW's Supernatural follows two brothers as they hunt vampires, werewolves, demons, and all things wicked. Geek girls have swooned over the Winchesters for 8 seasons. There's Dean, who loves women, pie, and classic rock almost as much as he loves his Impala. There's also intelligent, shaggy-haired Sam. At one point, I thought Sam (er, Jared Padalecki) was the most attractive man alive. ...One look at his grammar-murdering Twitter account changed that. ;)
For those of you not heartbroken by crushing reality, Creation Entertainment's Salute to Supernatural is just about here. The convention will be at the Westin O'Hare- an easy jump from the Blue Line. Thing is, Creation reaaallyyy wants you to stay all 3 days. Jensen and Jared are appearing Sunday, but fan favorite Misha Collins (a.k.a. Castiel) is a Saturday-only guest. Most of the minor characters are slated for Friday. I suppose hardcore fans won't mind the commitment!
Other programs include karaoke with Matt Cohen and Richard Speight, Jr. (I've seen some crazy pictures from this), photo ops, trivia, a costume contest, and a charity Halloween party. By far the weirdest event is a centerpiece contest. Yes, centerpieces... like you'd see at a Supernatural wedding. Fascinating. I think I've read that fanfic.
TL;DR: If you can't get enough of those Winchester boys and their rock'n'roll demon-slaying, this is the event for you.
Creation Entertainment's Salute to Supernatural. Friday, October 26th - Sunday, October 28th. Westin O'Hare, 6100 River Rd, Rosemont. Tickets at-the-door: Weekend, $109. Friday or Saturday, $30-50. Sunday-only SOLD OUT.
