2nd Annual CBCS Dinner/Meet-up @ SDCC3168

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
That time of year is almost here! Everyone on the CBCS boards who's in town for SDCC is invited to a dinner/hang-out/meet-up with your fellow boardmates. The guys manning the CBCS booth usually join us as well (though they don't officially have a booth yet, I'd imagine CBCS will have some presence at the show) and it's always a great time with your fellow comic lovers. Lots of beers, friends, and comic-talk!

The time and date is July 21st at 9pm, a couple of hours after the exhibit hall closes. THE LOCATION IS NOT FINALIZED, but I will try to keep it within downtown, though maybe a ways from the convention center to give everyone a reprieve from the noise and crowds. I'm currently looking at The Local on 4th Avenue but I'll post more info once I hear back about a place holder reservation.

If you'd like to RSVP, please send me a PM.



SDCC 2016 @ The Lazy Dog

@Mef @antoniofett All it takes is someone willing to take on making the reservations and throwing the invitation out there.

Unfortunately, I stick pretty close to the SoCal shows so I won't be going to Denver but maybe you guys can help organize meet-ups for the shows you're going to.

@Stu Does that mean I'm adding you to the guest list?

@JLS_Comics I'm gonna try to keep doing these as long as I can, so see you next year! Maybe you'll come to the WonderCon meet-up

Done and done!

Also, because I apparently can't read a calendar, the planned date is actually July 22nd, the Saturday of Comic-Con, at 9pm.

I have the reservation in place so The Local it is!

As I said before, it's on the other side of downtown so hopefully a little away from the crowds but close enough to take an Uber or Lyft, or even walk from your hotel.

Just a quick reminder that we're about a week and a half away.

For anyone else that's going to SDCC, we're planning a dinner/Meet-Up at The Local at 9pm on July 22nd.

RSVP with me if you haven't already, if you would like to attend!

Hello Everyone,

I think I already RSVP'd originally - I still hope to come, most likely just me, but a potential for a buddy along with me as a 2nd.

Not going to make it - I have the watch! I've been out the past two days and my wife wants a break from the kids and dogs. Those of us from San Diego - up for linking up in a week or two?

I was hoping there would be a SDCC photo thread, but this is all I could find. Too bad your get together didn't work as you hoped.

I guess I'll use this thread to share photos from my night in "Comic Book Heaven"

At the 2017 Will Eisner Awards Dinner:
