The people have spoken. We recently asked if our readers would be interested in a venue change and ticket sales for Enchantment Under the SDCC — our annual reader party where we celebrate you by showering you with goodie bags, raffle prizes, really bad jokes from your charming hosts, and more — if it meant a guaranteed spot and access to all of that. And, you’ve almost unanimously voted yes, so we’re pumping this baby up to 88 miles per hour and changing the future. Or the past. Or both.
With that, we’re pleased to announce that the party is moving a whole 700 feet to Analog Bar (801 5th Avenue Gaslamp, San Diego, 92101), where on Wednesday, July 20, from 7PM-11PM you can come hang out with us, receive a goodie bag (full of awesome items from Mattel, Oni Press, The Ninjabot, The San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog, Viz, and many others — with a retail value of over $50), and a chance to win raffle prizes (like a Hasbro FastPass, or items from Factory Entertainment, Symbiote Studios, the San Diego Symphony, Entertainment Earth, NECA, and many more still to be announced).
Plus, you’ll also get two drink tickets for beer and/or wine, and light food will be served (including popcorn chicken, beef sliders, grilled cheese, brownies, and more!). Soft drinks will also be available at no charge.
We’ve also heard your cries for t-shirts — but we don’t want to slow the check-in line down. So, we’re going to be offering a shirt, but it will be limited to a run of only 50 (sizes S-3X available). Here’s a look at this year’s design (with a few minor changes still to be made):
Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday, June 7 at 10AM PT through BrownPaperTickets. Here’s a breakdown of the prices:
General Entry – $45: Receives (1) general admission ticket, (1) goodie bag, (1) raffle ticket, (2) drink tickets for beer and/or wine, and light food
T-Shirt & General Entry: $65: Receives (1) Enchantment Under the SDCC t-shirt, (1) general admission ticket, (1) goodie bag, (1) raffle ticket, (2) drink tickets for beer and/or wine, and light food
