Haunter's Dinner Program
Break bread with other Chicago Frights attendees at the Haunter’s Dinner, July 18 & 19th at the Hilton (Lisle/Naperville). This is a fantastic networking opportunity: a chance to meet like-minded people, and share haunting dreams and nightmares in friendship and fright brotherhood. This plated meal includes iced tea and soft drinks. Cash bar also available. After the meal a keynote will be presented to the attendees.
You have to eat anyway! Why leave the hotel, arrange transportation, find a restaurant, wait for a table and eat with those boring people you already know? (Okay, maybe they’re not boring, but you know what we mean.) Come to the Haunter’s Dinner and meet new people, learn something you didn’t know, and still make the buses for the Haunt Tour. (Additional Fee Required, Cash Bar)
