And just so you know I am very, very excited to be just hours away from eating Chicago-style deep dish pizza. I will also totally not be bummed by whatever you guys decide to bring to the panels.

Our friends with the doughnuts in Seattle are still in the lead for this year’s convention season but I’m thinking Chicago might have something up their sleeves…
