The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Do we have anyone going to the June 23-25 2017 fanboy expo?

I am working on a Predator and USCM costume set for that show and am just wondering.

OK great event. definitely had the 501 there.

I am still trying to get a hold of the event organizers for fanboy.

I picked a brain at the Tennessean (next door to Holiday Inn, and a very upscale hotel.) The following restaurants downtown are open late
Balter Beer 865-999-5015 Friday + Saturday until 1AM
Barleys 865-521-0092 No closing listed
Bistro 865-544-0537 Friday until Midnight
Clancy's 865-219-1266 11AM to 3AM
Jig&Reel 865-247-7066 Tues-Sun until 3AM
Preservation Pub 865-524-2224 until 3AM
Scruffy City 865-524-2224 until 2AM
Oskar's 865-524-3663 Fri-Sat until 3am
Urban 865-546-2800 until 230AM

Downtown Grill & Brewery 865-633-8111 until 1AM Fri-Sat

All these are accessible by a slightly more than short walk to the old city. Or a 5 dollar Uber drive.

Holiday Inn and Tennessean can keep their bars open by specific request and some poking by the stars I noticed. That is another option as well.

From the impressions I have gotten it appears an all night after party is how you all handle the prolonged inflow and outflow of late comers.

Thoughts anyone?
