Default San Diego Comicon 2009

THU, JULY 23 -SUN,JULY 26

Who's going to SDCC ?

Let's do a meetup possibly a dinner whatever one of the nights.
What day works best for whoever's going?
My thought would be maybe Thursday(Preview Night) or Friday Night.

Well, I'm pretty sure I'll be exhausted Thursday night from all the travel. But Friday we should definitely do something.

I've gone the last 3 years, but this year depends on if I'll be employed or not. Times are tough.

I'm thinking of travelling to San Diego from Scotland to go this year. I've wanted to go to San Diego Comic Con for 10 years, and I think now could be as good a time as any to bite the bullet.

Who knows? We might get the first glimpse of the Green Lantern movie there this year.

Oh well, I'll at least hope to see something from Thor.

Do any of you guys know of good hotels that are near the convention centre?

If you can get a room, the Hard Rock Cafe is the best option.

I'll let you know in a couple of days where I'll be staying...hopefully

Just an update. Narrowed it down to the Ramada Gaslamp Convention Center and the Westin Gaslamp Quarter, 7 and 6 blocks from the Convention Center respectively. The Westin looks nicer, but that is reflected in a steeper cost.

I don't know what has possessed me. My friend (who lives in San Diego, and will be going to Comic-Con with me) wants to do the costume thing. She'd already started organising her costume, so that kinda left me needing to get a costume too.

I will now be dressing up as Green Lantern on the Saturday.

One of my associates will be there, but I will be staying as far away as possible.

SDCC ComicCon 2009 4-day passes and Saturday passes are sold out! They went on sale on the 19th of March and sold out on the 21st! I'm really having a hard time believing they sold out so quickly. I picked up Friday and Saturday before they sold out, but still. I was planning on going for all 4 days. If anyone is planning to go, you had better check the site. Friday tickets are 70% sold.

Got my GF's and My tix today. Wasn't able to get Sat pass. Oh well, I'm sure there's plenty to do in SD on Sat.

Anyways, Let's get a meetup organized sometime before the con.

Friday is now sold out. I just might have to spring for Thursday just to have some walk-around time. I can't believe Friday is going to be just as packed as Saturday.

Yeah, I thought the same thing when the 4 day tickets sold so fast. Guess next year will have to be my first time there.

Fucking insane. In 99 I walked up to the counter the day of the con and I don't think they ever sold out.

And people are coming and going all day... how/why can they "sell out"? It's not like there's assigned seating or anything.
