A super hero pub crawl, a StarTrek-themed dive, the Zombie Walk, Wil Wheaton’s Wootstock, Geek Girl Network’s Geek Out, Kevin Smith’s SMODcast, entitled “Jay and Silent Bob get Old” — dear gold, if you can’t find something fun to do instead of standing in line for Hall H, you have a problem.
This site has the bext guide to off-site and unofficial events — dancing, singing, marching, you name it. But we DID want to bring your attention to a couple of other things to do:
§ Here’s a list of Comic-Con happy hours — you’re definitely going to need a cold one after a day at the con.
§ Also you might want to follow the Gaslamp Quarter’s official twitter for specials on food and drink and restaurant tips. The locals seem to be opening Comic-con with open arms this time out.
§ Finally, San Diego has a Haunted Hotel that’s normally operates during Halloween, as most hanted hotels do, but it’s open for Comic-Con. How wacky is that?
