G-FEST XVII 2010!!! (GODZILLA BITCH!)



Nerd-Fucking Alert: “G-FEST is the largest regular gathering of Godzilla and Japanese monster fans in the world. Held each summer, G-FEST typically attracts about 1000 attendees. In 2005, more than 1300 attended.”

“G-FEST XVII will be held from July 9th through July 11th, 2010 at the Rosemont Hotel at O’Hare, 5550 North River Road, Rosemont, IL, right across the street from the Donald E. Stevens Convention Center. The location is just down the street from last year’s venue, the Crowne Plaza. You may call the hotel directly at (847) 678-4488 and ask for the G-FEST rate ($96.00: single, double, triple or quad) or Book your reservation online today with the G-FEST rate. The Rosemont Hotel is offering G-FEST attendees a special daily parking rate of only $4.00. Don’t delay, book your reservation today!”

This will be one of the most epic gatherings of nerdosity in all of nerd-dom. I'm a huge fan of Godzilla monsters (probably because it reminds me of the part of my childhood I spent in Japan) and I missed last year's fest so I'm definitely attending this year.


Also, G-FEST is once again sponsoring a mini film festival at the Pickwick Theater in Park Ridge, IL. Four movies: Son of Godzilla, Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992), Godzilla 2000 Millennium, and Godzilla X Megaguirus; will be shown on Thursday, July 8th, 2010, one pair in the afternoon and one pair in the evening. This is in addition to the Friday and Saturday night features, which will be Godzilla (1954) introduced by Akira Takarada (an actor who played various roles in the Godzilla film series) on Friday night and Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster on Saturday night!
