Happy Birthday to TCC & Terry-Con 2014

Saturday August 30th From Noon to Midnight
This year we're going to celebrate the 6th anniversary of Third Coast Comics on Saturday August 30th!
Yes, it's been 6 years and it's been 6 of the greatest years I've ever had. 
We've met some many awesome people in this community and had so many fantastic opportunities to express our love for 
comics and graphic novels that I'm almost at a loss for words. 
Thank you all so much for our first 6 years and lets have many more great ones!
In addition to the shop's birthday, the time has come to celebrate my birthday yet again and 
I hereby invite you all to Terry-Con 2014!
For those who do not know, TC2014 is simply my birthday party (and the shop's too now) and I throw a party full of all the things I love and invite all of you to, for one day, enjoy those things with me!
I haven't decided the order of all the cool things I'm planning to share so you might want to keep updated on the Third Coast Comics Facebook page.

Third Coast Comics Drink & Draw

Thursday September 11th at 7:00 PM
If you've been looking for a place to knit, draw, paint, write, sculpt or die cut robot parts all while talking comics, then this is the event for you!
When we opened 6 years ago we were committed to providing a space where the local arts and crafter community could meet and create.
This event has become a Battle Royale of Creative Greatness! Drink & Draw meets Stitch & Bitch in an epic comic shop throwdown! 
BYOB but incredibly fun as well!

Edgewater Run/Walk 5K

Sunday September 28th at 8:00 AM

Join Third Coast Comics in this great fundraiser! We plan to run representing our geek love to the fullest. Runners/Walkers on the TCC team are encouraged to participate in CosPlay or any other nerdy way they can come up with! Lets do this!

Join us for the first annual Edgewater Back to School 5k Run/Walk! Celebrate our community and view historic sites along the lakefront path while raising money for 11 local schools. A portion of each registration fee will go to benefit the school of the runner’s choice. Many graduates from our schools stay in the community; invest in our future!

Whether you want to get moving with your family, your friends, or your dog, the Edgewater 5k is for you. Gather post-race for snacks and massages, then head to brunch at one of our local spots and return to Granville Ave. for the Edgewater Fall Art Fair featuring over 90+ artist, two stages and a beer garden.

There is no shortage to post-race brunch options in Edgewater! Stay close and dine on Granville Ave., or stretch your legs and head south to Bryn Mawr Ave. Either way, you won’t be disappointed!

About the course:

The race route begins in front of the historic Sovereign Apartments at Granville and Kenmore and heads east to Sheridan Road. Runners will head south on Sheridan Road, a rare opportunity to run in the street, as they are dwarfed by the towering lakefront high rise buildings! The route turns east at Ardmore to the northernmost part of the scenic lakefront path, heading south past Kathy Osterman Beach. The run will take participants back in time to the Roaring ‘20s, past the famed Edgewater Beach Building. Rounding the corner of the Foster Beach concessions, the route meanders along the lakefront before turning around and heading back through the park.

About the beneficiaries:

The 48th Ward is home to nine elementary schools and two high schools, collectively serving more than 6.000 students.  Reflecting the incredible diversity of Edgewater, kids in our local schools represent hundreds of countries around the world and speak over 75 different languages.  Despite great challenges, our local schools have achieved marked success through the highest CPS level 1 ratings to the National Blue Ribbon Award with expanded IB programs and innovative arts partnerships.  Funds raised by the Edgewater 5k Run/Walk will go toward providing expanded educational opportunities such as arts and sports programs.
