Face it: As with Harry Potter and High School Musical before it, there is no place you can go to escape "Twilight." Not even Rosemont.
Next weekend (February 6-8), our neighbor hosts Twilight Convention Chicago, a three-day celebration at the Wyndham O'Hare, featuring autograph/photo op sessions and panel discussions with film stars Peter Facinelli (Dr. Carlisle Cullen), Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen) and Justin Chon (Eric Yorkie). There will also be a Forks Prom Party on Friday evening and a Vampire Costume Ball on Saturday - not to mention tons of merchandise on sale.
Tickets run from $15 for one event to a $425 ULTIMATE package. Visit www.flashbackweekend.com or call (847) 478-0119. The hotel will also be offering rooms for as little as $99/night.
