San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) Tips: Round 2

By Shawn Marshall| June 19, 2012 | Comments Off on San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) Tips: Round 2

I’m back with a few more of my SDCC tips from my Twitter account. Remember, you can follow me on Twitter at @The_Con_Fluence for up to the minute con updates and tips throughout SDCC.

Here they are:

“If you wait & don’t pre-pay park (why would you do that?), try structure on 6th & J; default to lot on Imperial. #SDCCTips”

“If you see something you love at #SDCC buy it! If you see something you like, put it on a list & check for price drop on Sun #SDCCTips”

“Eat at Cafe Diem on Wed morn before #SDCC (not crowded) . It’s overpriced, but it’s fun & becoming an #SDCC tradition #SDCCTips”

“If you are unhappy w/your luck on the WB bag, tweet me & I’ll RT so that my followers can connect on trades. Worked great last yr #SDCCTips”

“Wear nondescript clothing if you want multiples of swag. If you stand out, you may not get seconds #SDCCTips”

“Make an #SDCC exclusive want list prior to the con. If you don’t have a list & a plan, you stand better chance of missing out #SDCCTips”

“Multiple twitter lists for #SDCC is key. You may want to know what a fav star is eating, but that’s different than floor reports #SDCCTips”

“Using past WB bags is a good way to make yourself more identifiable at #SDCC My Watchman bag from 10 will make me easier to find #SDCCTips”

“Vela at the @HiltonBayfront is 1 of the least crowded & most relaxing dining spots near #SDCC during the con #SDCCTips”

Keep checking back here for more additions to this list.
