I always figured it was the money. The venue became more popular and Nerdist has more money.

I believe I also heard that Petco raised their prices for renting of the space, and Zac Levi took quite a monetary hit on HQ in 2014 (or whatever the year before the crowd funding was).

I do miss Petco, but I understand why they moved. The fact that they fixed the issue with the seating and the AC is good enough for me.

Were you at the Chuck Meet-Up that was the year BEFORE the first Nerd HQ?  That was great, too.

I went the first year, too.  I know it's too popular to go back to that set-up, but I can still reminisce.  Some of the best things are when you are an early adoptor before the crowds discover it and change it into something else.

No. My first sdcc year was also the first nerd HQ year. So I've never been to an sdcc without nerd HQ as a vital part of it.

Ah, I remembered the name wrong.  It was called the Chuck Tweet-Up and had been organized on Twitter.  They rented out a bar and it was just about 50 fans.  The entire cast of Chuck showed up.  It was very social.  We had name tags and someone recognized my handle and complimented me on posts I made that they had read.

I actually liked it best the 2nd year when it was at a bar.  It was near my hotel and I would just pop in and sit at the bar for a drink and/or something to eat.  It was easy to just strike up a conversation with the people next to you.  Very social.  Every so often the Nerd HQ folks could come out and have a raffle or announce a photo op.  It was more of a hang out. Now, it feels more corporate.

I like the dance party a little bit, but it is a madhouse.  I've heard there is pushing and shoving near the front whenever Zac appears.

Yes I wrote about the pushing and shoving in my write-up. Its so ridiculous.

Just saw this. The Chuck Tweet-up? Not ChuckFest 3 right? Cause I was there for that event and the entire cast was there for that too.

I was at ChuckFest 3, too.  That was in Santa Monica.  No, there was something organized by the same people during the 2010 SDCC.  They put out the word on Twitter and if you gave them your name, you were put on the list at the door of the club.  They didn't even advertise that the cast was going to be there.  That was smart.  It was just advertised as a meet-up of Chuck fans.  Then, the cast surprised us.

Here are some pictures

If you stayed for the end of trivia at ChuckFest 3, I was the one who finished in second. Grr. Still not happy about that one. That final question stumped all of us so hard.

Wow, did not see that coming.  This I will truly miss. :(

Guess it was good thing to announce before the hotel cancellation deadline.

That's too bad, I always enjoyed going there for the panels (when I got tickets).

My sister will be especially bummed. If there was one thing she looked forward to every year, it's the Sunday Supernatural panel (both at Hall H and at NerdHQ).

I wonder if it was a matter of money. I remember them having issues three years ago raising money and had that public funding campaign.
