Hey Bond fans out there!

Am planning one amazing Bond-theme party in Chicago sometime in the Spring of 2002. It will be sponsored by luxury product companies and perhaps, Pinewood Studios, MGM, Austin Martin and others associated with the Bond films.

If all goes well, I will even attempt to get Brosnan or Halle Berry (new villainess) here for the party.

The party will be dance-oriented, featuring Euro and remixed Bond movie soundtracks as well as Martini specials, Cavier & Chocolate Tastings. This is just a sample of what's to come this Spring!

Please contact me if you are interested in helping me promote this event or if you know people who would be willing to co-promote or co-sponsor what I am calling the "Bond Ball."

Hope to hear from some of you fans out there, particularly those of you in or around Chicago, IL USA.

I'm also in the U.S., and I'm driving distance from Chi-town. I'd love to hear more information on this.

Sounds like a cool idea, but do you realise that Bond 20 is being filmed at that time? (Brosnan and Berry are in the UK.)
I hope it works out though, BTW have you contacted Aston Martin etc. about this or is it still in planning. How many people are you planning on having?

That would be cool since I live an hour from Chicago.

Does anyone think "Hamed" was serious about his Bond ball, or do u think he was just having us on? I mean it did not sound that much like he knew what he was on about. Why would Aston Martin sponsor a room full of ppl and a few slices of pizza, in an event which did not sound like it was going to be too well publicized. If we were in with a chance of going, then how in the hell would it benefit Aston Martin sales?
If it were a group of rich pimps in attendence then i suppose i could see where he was coming from.
Judging by the fact that "Hamed" only made one post, and never mentioned it again, i think its safe to say - he was making it up.
NE1 Else think so...?

Ever considered that this is an international site? I must say this because I'm from the Netherlands and I'm just a 20-year old student who can't afford something like that.

But......if I'm rich enough after Law university?...........We shall see
