Norwalk, CT, May 14, 2009: New York Comic Con (NYCC) today announced it will host a special gathering for NYC-area comic fans, creators, and professionals on Wednesday, May 20th from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM at Dave and Busters in Times Square (234 West 42nd Street). This inaugural New York Comic Con Happy Hour will serve as a space for the NYC comic community to chat, network, and interact with the New York Comic Con team. The NYCC Happy Hour is free and open to the public.
"We're very excited to launch our first New York Comic Con Happy Hour," NYCC Show Manager Lance Fensterman said. "The last NYCC was this past February, the next isn't until October 2010, and there's a long time in-between. We don't want to disappear, though, and are planning a series of parties and similar events throughout this year and next to keep New York's comic community engaged."
Dave and Busters will be offering all attendees half-priced drinks until 7:30 PM and half-priced games all night long. Further, attendees will want to be at the party at 8 PM when NYCC hosts its summer kickoff raffle -- with prizes generously donated by partners including Dave and Busters, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and Midtown Comics.
