[UPDATE 2] More pics from inside the Ascension Cafe thanks to Shawn “The Con Fluence” Marshall. No change in the menu yet – just the standard menu at the moment – but we’ll get that if the restaurant swaps it out tonight.

[UPDATE] Shawn “The Con Fluence” Marshall has stopped by the Ascension Cafe again and gotten an inside look at the Syfy takeover. Here’s the photos:

[PREVIOUS] For the last several years, Syfy has taken over Mary Jane’s restaurant at the Hard Rock Hotel to rebrand it as something related to their series. In years past, the restaurant has been everything from CafeDiem from Eureka to the Defiance Cafe, but so far, there’s been no word on if the cafe what the cafe might be transformed into for this year.Thanks to our very own Shawn “The Con Fluence” Marshall, though, who is currently on the ground in San Diego, we know what 2014’s theme will be: The Ascension Cafe.

Ascension follows a 1960’s government-ordered covert space mission, sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship “Ascension” to populate a new world, assuring the survival of the human race. The six hour event series will air in November on Syfy.

Attendees can also catch a panel for the series, with stars Tricia Helfer, Brian Van Holt, and Andrea Roth on Saturday at 3:15PM in Room 6DE.Here are some photos of the Syfy restaurant makeover:
