Geek & Sundry Returning to Jolt’n Joes During SDCC 2014

In Offsites by Jeremy Rutz6 Comments

Geek & Sundry2013G&S SDCC Lounge, the YouTube channel created by Felicia Day and home of popular internet shows such as Spooked, the Day’s Co-Optitude, and  Wil Wheaton’s TableTop, will be returning as an offsite during San Diego Comic-Con

The popular Comic-Con offsite will be returning to its 2013 location, Jolt’n Joes in the Gaslamp (4th Avenue and J Street), where it will be hosting two packed days of programming, giveaways, and parties on Thursday, July 24, and Friday, July 25.

Although the official schedule of events at the Geek & Sundry Lounge have not yet been announced, fans will have the chance to mingle with stars Day and Wheaton as well as other “surprise guests”, check out first-look game previews and demos, play games from the game library, participate in giveaways, and much more. Throughout the two days, there will be cast panels from some of Geek & Sundry’s most popular series, autograph signings, cosplay, evening VIP parties, and more.

“Geek & Sundry is thrilled to be back at Comic-Con with our popular Geek & Sundry Lounge which has grown year on year.  Our fans are always at the heart of our events and we’ve continued to curate and develop our programming with them in mind,” said Sheri Bryant, Co-Founder of Geek & Sundry. “We will be premiering many tabletop, video game and digital entertainment exclusives this year, and are grateful to continue to have such a tremendous brand partnership response at Comic-Con and beyond.”

This year’s sponsors and partnerships for the Geek & Sundry Lounge include Microsoft Surface, Wizards of The Coast, Logitech G, AMD (Dragon Age: Inquisition), Japanime Games, CD PROJEKT RED (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt), Black Magic Design, Loot Crate, Espionage Cosmetics, and more — who will each be bringing attendees “an exciting demo experience that will surely delight”.

For those who want to stay inside the convention center during Comic-Con, Geek & Sundry will also be having two “official” panels.

Last year, the channel scheduled events at Jolt’n Joes for each of the four days during SDCC, meaning 2014 marks a decrease in the schedule. It sounds like Geek & Sundry has packed as much as they could into the two days they will be at Comic-Con, so attendees will have to settle for getting their fix on Thursday and Friday. Creator Felicia Day offers a few more reasons why fans should attend:
