Calgary Expo Weekend

Attention all cosplayers, comic book fans, film aficionados, anime enthusiasts and video gamers!

The 10th Annual Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo begins tonight. And while you get ready for celebrity signings, photo ops, costume contests and attending as many guest panels as you can, you may have forgotten about the most crucial part of comic-con; What to do when the show is over.

Luckily, we here at Melrose inside Cowboys Casino, (just a hop-skip away from the BMO Centre), have you covered when you want to enjoy a refreshing ale after a long hard day of geeking out at the Calgary Expo. Because when you come dressed in costume and your cosplay best, you’ll get 10% off the total bill of your food and/or drink order.

Start off by joining us tonight for Craft Beer Night and bring along your cosplay friends for select pints on for $6. Choose from breweries such as Granville Island, Village, Fat Tire Ale and many more.

Stop by Friday night for specials on pints and bottles of Molson Canadian and Coors. And while you’re taking a break from the Calgary Expo, cheer on the Calgary Flames when they take on the Vancouver Canucks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Then come Saturday night, things get a little classier with our $5.50 highballs, $7.50 martinis and $7 Heineken on draft.

And finally, close out the Calgary Expo on Sunday night with $4 bottles of domestic beer or $4 bar brand highballs.

If that weren’t enough, we’ve partnered with ATB financial to transform one section of our bar into the “ATB Blue Cantina”. Where you can meet up with other cosplayers and comic fans to discuss all the cool things you bought, saw, or can’t wait to see.

And as an added bonus, look for the ATB booth inside the Calgary Expo where the ATB staff will be giving out coupons for half-off our delicious pizza menu.

So don’t miss out on all the festivities down here, both at the Stampede Grounds and Melrose. It is sure to be a great and colourful weekend whether you’re a veteran of the Calgary Expo or this is your first time attending.

Cheers and have a super time!
