How to Be a Proper Villain

 Can you even be a proper villain without one of these on your lap? If you come to the Heroes vs. Villains Halloween Dinner, you won’t have to find out. A plush version or two will be available for a modest price onsite. At the end of the night, you can return them for donation to Starlight Children’s Foundation so a lucky child will have something else to love.

You can indulge in over-the-top treats, signature drinks, and fun activities so join us at the end of a busy day to meet your peers in an entertaining environment. Networking is more fun when costumes are involved- guaranteed icebreakers abound!

Prize for Best Persona to be announced soon!
