- SAN DIEGO COMIC ART GALLERY -
Could you ask for a better venue? We are taking over the entire ground floor of IDW Publishing headquarters, one of the top comic publishers in the US! Hobnob amongst rare and amazing comic art in their San Diego Comic Art Gallery, curated by the co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Kevin Eastman. All located in a historic decommissioned naval base.
- UNLIMITED CRAFT BEER -
Arguably one of the craft beer capitals of the world, it would not be a San Diego event without including some local breweries. Featuring multiple pouring stations, you will be able to appreciate some of the best that San Diego has to offer.
- LEGIT TACOS -
The best Mexican food in town isn't found at a restaurant, it's served up at family backyard events via classic taco carts. We're bringing in our hometown heroes to grill up fresh tortillas and traditional Mexican fare with authentic salsas. Trust us, you're going to love it.
- Vegetarian/vegan options available.
- IDW HOUSE BAND -
Not only are they comic book mavens, but they also rock out! Comprised solely of IDW staff, Gentlemen Ghost will be jamming some surf rock on their in-house stage at IDW Headquarters. Yup - they have an freakin' in-house stage! Song requests accepted only in Klingon.
- TRAVELING STORIES -
Good times become great, when there is a community benefit involved. By attending, you're helping to put books into the hands of kids around the world who can't afford them. Be a mensch by drinking beer with Founder, Emily Moberly, and learning about her mission and collaborations with IDW Publishing. Get yourself informed and verklempt by visiting travelingstories.org.
- MIKE'S HOP-CADE -
A tribute to 80's arcades made from beer barrels and kegs. Go head-to-head on arcade barrels displayed on projection screens! The crown jewel of Mikes HOP-CADE is the Super Battle Arcade, a beastly, custom-welded, double tower of kegs that pits two players in six classic arcade challenges.
