SDCC Prep, Again!

I don’t know when SDCC became so close, but suddenly I checked the calendar and it was right around the corner! We’re at 10 days until the big show now, and the schedules are starting to come out a bit at a time. Everything through Saturday has been released, and I’m working on setting up […]

Travel preprations; where to find the best fare?

Hello, you lot! I’m hopping in to post because Damsel Chan is presently out in the beautiful land of Hawaii with the love of her life (I’m only marginally jealous), and I don’t want to let the blog gather any kind of dust. While Chan is jetsetting, I’m handling business as usual. This week, the […]

San Diego: North of the Airport?

As Comic-Con 2012 news becomes apparent – membership IDs, guests, masquerade, etc. – we all start to think about San Diego and its magical convention in just a few (5?) months.  The famed convention center, the plethora of hotels around it, and of course the Gaslamp District. But what else does San Diego have? In […]

Syfy’s Café Diem: Chan’s Review

Adjacent to the Hard Rock Hotel is a cute little restaurant normally entitled Maryjane’s Coffee Shop.  But, for one week this year of ComicCon, it was transformed into Café Diem, the signature coffee shop from Syfy’s original series Eureka.  The chairs, napkins, décor, menus, and more are completely changed out for Café Diem and Syfy-themed […]

CNET Base Station featuring GameSpot: Chan’s Review

Free food?  Free internet?  Free stuff?  Too good to be true?  Well, it wasn’t, as CNET‘s Base Station featuring GameSpot took over Lou & Mickey’s on Fifth in the Gaslamp Quarter across from the San Diego Convention Center.  While you did need a ComicCon badge to enter, there was plenty of great stuff awaiting us!  […]

Nerdist Podcast featuring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan – Nikki’s Review

I promise that a more detailed write up will be coming from me soon, but right now (as I’m still tired and recovering from jet lag/convention lag/whatever you’d like it call it) I’m going to touch on a few of my favorite moments from San Diego Comic Con. And it shouldn’t come as much of […]

Cirque du Soleil’s KÀ Battle San Diego: Chan’s Review

Once I heard about this free off-site event, I had to check it out.  I have been a huge fan of Cirque du Soleil for years and years – I have seen at least six or seven of their shows and my dream for a long time was to be a costume designer for a […]

Nintendo Gaming Lounge: Chan’s Review

As I posted before Comic-Con, the Nintendo Gaming Lounge inside the Marriott Marquis & Marina was in full swing during the convention.  This was one of the places I frequented during the convention, and for good reason!  There were so many games to try, bean bags set up to lounge, and, of course, free goodies! […]

Wednesday Badge Pick-Up: Chan’s Review

The only other convention I really have to compare ComicCon to is BlizzCon, and of course ComicCon is on a completely different scale size-wise.  There are some key similarities, though: lines for everything, people who sit and wait through panels to get good seats for the awesome stuff, and day before badge pick-up.  With that […]
