ThunderCon is proud to bring you a unique evening featuring many of ThunderCon 2018's special guests in one of Thunder Bay's most loved establishments - Sleeping Giant Brewery. With hosts Matt Cimone (Chasing Atlantis) and the warriors of the Crimson Dawn Klingon Assault Group, the Brewery will be closed to the public but open for Thunder Fun!
