Yea!  I really liked it at the Children's Museum.  I don't remember going last year, but in 2015 it was real fun

Nerd HQ tweeted back in January that they were returning for 2017. I thought that everyone already knew.  :)

I saw that while I was doing some research last night however it did not include the location. Still good info to pass along.

I found some information about the next Heroes Brew Craft Beer Fest--


It looks like it will be back at the Waterfront Park.
Granted, the website still has a lot of old info from last year and needs to be updated, but it does state "San Diego's Waterfront Park transforms into a Craft Beer Comic Book Saturday, July 22nd" and "Tickets go on sale soon!" and "Stay Tuned!".

I guess this qualifies as off-site news, at least for next year--  :)

"Gaslamp goes Hollywood with multiplex upgrade"

"The Gaslamp promises to go Hollywood, inspired by the legendary Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, with a multimillion-dollar rebooting of a 15-screen multiplex that went dark a year ago.

Interior demolition has begun on the former Pacific and Reading cinema building at Fifth Avenue and G Street to prepare for an upscale eight-screen replacement, paired with a Landshark Bar & Grill by Jimmy Buffett and a celebrity-driven Sugar Factory restaurant, lounge and candy store.

“We’re innovators and feel the theater business has to go to a different level,” said the project’s developer, Elie Samaha. “What we’re trying to do is create a new experience for people to come into downtown.”

Samaha is a film producer and part-owner in the TCL Chinese Theatre (Grauman’s Chinese in Hollywood, opened in 1927), where star-studded premieres are held and tourists worship at the foot- and handprints of celebs embedded in the pavement.

He said the “Theatre Box” project will open by year’s end and host film festivals, Comic-Con screenings and countless birthdays, bachelorette parties and nights on the town."

Doug Loves Movies is back at American Comedy Company on July 19th at 8pm. ACC will be releasing others soon. I'm sure we will see Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes do their podcast and Brian Posehn is always there too.

Wonder what could be screened there this year? Spider-man comes out before the con.  I can't think of anything due in late July.
