And the head monsters from the SML Haunted Mansion and Blog Laboratory will be there! We’re hosting a panel at 7:00 pm, May 12 entitled “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Monster.” At the panel we will reveal our secrets on how to start your own holiday, piss off celebrities, purchase a celestial body, and still have time to take over the world. And we will literally be performing a miracle in front of the audience. It’s a must-see! Trust us.
If you come to our panel, you may leave thinking that the evening couldn’t possibly get even cooler. But Ashtoberfest is hosting the official Zombie Prom after party. Come dance, gnaw on your fellow man, and fight for the prizes in auction silent auction. The Zombie Prom is downtown at the OneStop, May 12, 10:00 pm – 2:00 am.
