Can someone confirm whether the offsites are for attendees only or are they open to all.

Thanks.  I think that settles it for me.  I have enough time for about 3 hours tomorrow.  Either I could try to squeeze in a very stressful volunteer shift constantly worried about time or I can have a relaxing time in line for an offsite.

I went to the La Brea offsite today.  There were only 2 people in line in front of me.  They only beat me to the line because I took 2 seconds to take a picture.  So I had about a 15 second wait.  The offsite is basically two photo op backdrops.  At the end is an ambulance giving away swag.  I got a water bottle.  They had a water fill station there.  I saw no sign of the Resident Alien booth.

I also checked out the Peacekeepers offsite.  The line there was longer.  According to the person at the front, it was about a 40 minute wait.  I could have done it but I decided to spend the rest of my hour elsewhere.  What I could see of it looked cool.  The course is blocked from view.  It's a solid normal comic-con offsite.  There was an eating area with chairs and tables and the forementioned food truck.  There was a sign at the line asking people to socially distance.  No one did that.

The resident alien booth is near the trolley tracks. It’s really small it’s literally just a pink box you don’t even go inside they just hand totes bags from there.

Missed it.  I saw people walking around with totes.  From the announcement I saw, I thought it was part of the La Brea offsite.

We almost missed the Resident Alien booth too.

Did anyone go to the Freak Brothers in front of the HBF?

Are they giving away t-shirts at the Peacemaker offsite?  I didn't see anyone with one at the picnic tables, but I thought I saw a little pile behind the scenes.  That may have been for staff.

I found it today.  It was cleverly disguised as a water fill station.  There was no one working there.  The hatch was closed and the "line" sign was leaning there askew.

I dropped by this today.  It's basically a photo op background.  They have a little lounge area set up in front of the bus.  When I first arrived, there was a group about 4 people sitting in the lounge and taking pictures.  They left a couple of minutes later when I was taking pictures of the site.  Then it was just me and a bunch of workers.  The posters and mints are sitting on a table.  I asked if I could take a mint.  The response was "take as many as you want".  So I took a couple which was met with an invitation to take more.

It's out of the way.  Unless you are looking for it, you are unlikely to see it.  I think they would get many more visitors if it was out in front like the other two offsites.
