Hey hey hey friends!
So for almost a year, I have been bugging y’all with news about the arrival of our favorite cartoon hometown at Universal Studios Hollywood. Since then, I’ve tried to keep y’all abreast of all the developments. While it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since I saw the first image of this amazingness, it has and boy oh boy do I have news for you.
This news comes to us from my beautiful mother some of you may know as Wookieemama. Here’s what she posted on our Meet & Greet Reminder:
“I know you are going to have a great time. Next time do we get a West Coast meet & greet? According to my unofficial source at Universal Hollywood, Springfield is going to officially open this Saturday March 28th. Although there is nothing on their website about it. Maybe I should go investigate while the Wookiee is with all of you.”
You read that right, according to a reliable source, this Saturday, the walls will be gone and Springfield will officially open to guests. While I’ve found no mention online, apparently me mudder has the hookup over at USH and scooped me on the details. Of course, Alissa, Bunny and I will be on the East Coast visiting with some of you so what’s a So Cal resident to do? Easy my friends… go right when I get off the plane on Tuesday lol.
Why I found out hours after my Mom’s posting is a whole different story lol. Not a big deal though because I love my giver of life and can share the info with all of you. Hopefully a few Addicts might be able to be there for the opening. (Rumor has it a soft opening might occur on Friday too.) As an added bonus, I’ve heard in the casa that the Wookieemama might actually be taking some pictures for all of you and writing a special From the Mouths of Addicts also. Barring that, I’ll have info and pics by Wednesday or Thursday of next week.
Curious about what all will be there… check out this post with some of the buildings shown. I hope y’all find this as exciting as me. I truly love when amazing things happen in reality. Speaking of… don’t forget about the Meet & Greet. Our bags are packed (well… Bunny & I… Alissa’s probably cleaning up in prep for the mess we’ll make) and we’re ready to go. I’ll be leaving on a jet plane this Friday lamenting not being in Hollywood for the opening but celebrating spending some time with all of you who can make the event in Joisey.
Springfield… Springfield… it’s a hell of a town! Much love, Homer hugs and all that goodness and keep on tapping in the free world. TTFN… Wookiee out!
