Greetings, Trek fans! We are t-minus two days until the excellent Star Trek Las Vegas convention, and we are pleased to report that OTF will be in attendance at the Rio, bringing you personal moments with your favorite Star Trek celebs and our unique perspective on the events of the con. To kick it off, we wanted to spotlight an event that isn’t on Creation’s roster, but like so many of the fun events at SDCC, is being held at a neighboring hot spot. On Sunday, August 12, after the convention winds up what is sure to be another jam-packed hell of an event, Robert Picardo (everyone’s favorite EMH) is hosting a charity auction across from the Rio at Tommy Rocker’s Grill. Chock-full of scifi memorabilia and fun times, Picardo is donating all of the proceeds from this even to the San Gabriel Valley chapter of Habitat for Humanity! Captain Janeway would approve.
So after the convention is over, don’t let the Trek fun stop just yet! Pop in to the auction and give back a little of the love that we all feel during the comraderie of a convention. Perhaps you’ll even see some familiar crew members as they join Picardo in raising money for this worthy cause.
The auction runs from 8:30pm until midnight on August 12 at Tommy Rocker’s, located at 4275 Dean Martin Drive in Vegas, just across the street from the Rio Hotel and Convention Center. Hope to see you there!
