HOLY 50th ANNIVERSARY! The main attraction this year is the dynamic TRIO of Julie Newmar, Adam West and Burt Ward.
This year's weekend of weirdness takes place at the Sheraton Parsippany.
There WILL be a photo op session where YOU can join ALL THREE for a memorable picture (suitable for framing).
The Chiller website offers a page where you can sign up for the PRO STAR event, 7:30pm on Friday, October 23rd, 5pm on Saturday, October 24th, and yes, on a relaxed Sunday afternoon, you can get your photo done at 1pm. These sessions are on the convention's second floor, set up with flattering professional lighting, to make sure that photo will be a keeper!

It's purrr-fect for relaxing during a "Batman" re-run. Sip enough and the lady across from you may turn into "Stupefyin' Jones." Sitting alone with a shapely bottle, and you may envision you're quenching with the wench of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," delightful Dorcas.
Whatever your favorite Julie role, this wine could take you to "The Twilight Zone," or on a "Star Trek," or simply thinking, "Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar!"
It's a win-wine situation.
The wine has a bit of everything, including "a silky texture - with rich pear, lemon cream and honeyed flavors - that linger in a long leggy finish."
A truly fine vintage needs to age a while, and the idea for this exquisite wine fermented in the mind of John Newmeyer for many decades. John, of course is Julie's big brother. He's the grower behind Heron Lake Winery, and along with David Mahafee (officially "the vintner") they've created something that brings out the ecstatic or the erotic, and either a feeling of warmth or a fit of the giggles (or both).
What else could you want? Well, maybe someone in Colorado will come up with Marijuana-go-Round Brownies, to honor Julie's Tony-award winning Broadway role as Katrin. But for now, you'll have to figure out your own snack to eat while being merry with Julie Newmar wine:
It's being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center
1201 South Figueroa Street.
Bat-fans will also be able to meet and greet Adam West and Burt Ward.
Among the other "vintage" stars: Howie Mandel, James Hong, Edward James Olmos, and no doubt pretty tired from Halloween promotions, "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark" (aka Cassandra Peterson).
The Forkers have set up a two-tiered pricing:
"Award ceremony + movie $20. Award ceremony + movie + meet and greet with Mz. Newmar at the Fork Cafe before the show $75." Friday September 12 9pm at: Fork Cafe 469 Castro Street, San Francisco, CA 94114
The fans in S.F. are always keeping it classy.
There was an hour-long press conference about this momentous event...which not only features Blu-Ray discs but all kinds of books, toys and extras in the package.
There was, of course, time for some genial fun. Someone asked Adam about all the guest villains, and he instantly pointed to Julie as his favorite. He added, "There was a sexual tension between Catwoman and Batman…we did the show on several levels."
And how did Julie feel about Adam? "Drop dead gorgeous!" she said, to great laughter and applause, "...and he had great lips!"
To whet your appetite, Julie, Adam and Burt will be at Comic-Con in San Diego to appear on a panel and discuss this...ZAP! POW! news.
The Bat Time is 6-7pm and the Bat Place is "Hall H" at Comic-Con.
