San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) Tips: Version 3.0

By Shawn Marshall| June 21, 2012 | Comments Off on San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) Tips: Version 3.0

20 days until SDCC! Are you packed? Well, I’m back with another group of #SDCCTips from my Twitter account (@The_Con_Fluence). Remember to bookmark this page and follow on Twitter so that you are in the loop throughout SDCC.

Here they are:

@The_Con_Fluence: If you don’t have tics for a day (or all 4), there’s still tons of #SDCC fun. Keep an eye on off-site items @ #SDCCTips

@The_Con_Fluence: For a refreshing break from #SDCC crowds, grab a burger from the outside @HiltonBayfront vendors & sit here #SDCCTips (See photo above)

@The_Con_Fluence: Watch the ground at #SDCC for dropped fulfillment room tics. Found 5 last yr & earned some nice swag w/o attending the panels #SDCCTips

@The_Con_Fluence: Research autograph options. Often you’ll find that you already own something that the talent at #SDCC needs to sign to make great #SDCCTips

@The_Con_Fluence: Wed morn of #SDCC it is fun to take walking tour of area & see transformation of Gaslamp. Stop by the hotels & see the seeds #SDCCTips

@The_Con_Fluence: Eating at Gaslamp Strip Club is another #SDCC must. Bit pricey, but it’s a unique & tasty culinary experience you won’t forget #SDCCTips

@The_Con_Fluence: It’s helpful to bring several bags to #SDCC . As you filll them up, you can leave swag in & just grab a new empty bag #SDCCTips

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

@The_Con_Fluence: 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

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

@The_Con_Fluence: 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

@The_Con_Fluence: 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

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

@The_Con_Fluence: 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

@The_Con_Fluence: 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

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