September 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Nicky Brendon’s Not Your Typically Average Meet & Greet – *Grand Rapids (MI)*

The Event: Paints & Paws Pool Party plus VIP Watch Party $25+

Actor NICHOLAS BRENDON, “Xander” – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “Kevin Lynch” – Criminal Minds, is traveling the world on his Happiness Runs Amok…because I give Amok Tour!

A memorable experience for any Nicky and Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan! A real chance to chat, get a hug, take photos, get memorabilia signed (or choose from one of his photos!), and ask all the questions you’ve always wanted to ask…nothing is off limits! Prepare yourself for a evening hanging with Nicky and other fans in a relaxed, judgement-free zone where everyone is welcome…. Except attendance is limited (25-30 on average) so don’t procrastinate!

IT’S NOT YOUR TYPICALLY AVERAGE MEET & GREET! No long lines, no big crowds, and you spend the entire time of the event in the company of Nicky (minus smoke breaks)… Also note he is 100% authentic, unscripted, uncensored, and spontaneous, not for the faint of heart. You will feel accepted, included, at ease, and have every right to let your fandom flag fly… If there are any questions, please email us, check FAQs, or check his REVIEWS!
