Mel, just so you know, ECCC isn't a 'hang out' sort of con. There's not a lot going on outside of the convention center.

That being said, tickets for all days but Saturday are still available.

If you find the right spot it can be. I was at Old Stove brewery down near the market and met a couple locals and a woman passing through from GB and asked about the con a little bit. I'm a beer geek so I always find some strange place to go but I do venture out kind of far from the convention center. The furthest we've gone was SafeCo field for a game 2 years ago. Nice pub about 1/2 way with a good ruben.

Not a designated meeting place but plenty of places to meet up with people and all within walking distance of the con.

I just found out that you can redeem Citi ThankYou Rewards for Southwest Flights...you just have to call in rather than redeem them online.

It also looks like I have just enough Citi ThankYou Rewards points for a Southwest flight to Seattle on a certain weekend...  >:D

Emerald City Comicon is introducing MUSIC ALLEY this year! This is excellent news. The artist/band Kirby Krackle is the artist most synonymous with ECCC in my opinion. Last year he said ReedPop wouldn't offer him a space in Artist Alley. They let him buy a small press booth, but he turned it down since he didn't like the idea of ReedPop not considering musicians artists. But having a special section to showcase musicians sounds win/win for everyone. There is a pretty big nerd-rock scene in the PNW. Kirby Krackle will be back, and so far the PDX Broadsides and Rock Paper Cynic have also been announced as part of Music Alley, with possibly more to come.

Additionally, Kracklefest (Kirby Krackle's annual concert at the Hard Rock Cafe held during ECCC) in its eighth year is finally an official ECCC-sponsored event!

Only so many cons i can go to in a year lol. im lucky i go to ones close by and maybe others in future if all goes right. so far the biggest one for me is SDCC, and the rest are more low key kinda cause not as many days and as much publicity or traffic i guess. but i am happy i find ways to save to go and still enjoy the event at time.
