Phoenix Comicon!

  • May 23, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

My idea was for those of us who are attending to meet there for some group activity like a dinner or to hang out at the Geek Prom.

Instead of us throwing a room party, we'll be at the B5 party put on by the con itself!  Captain's Cantina on Friday May 24 9p-2a in the Renaissance Pueblo Room.

With 20+ folks going, I recommend we meet before the Geek Prom and take a pic together before heading in.  If you aren't going to the Geek Prom,  we can try for breakfast either at the lovely buffet at the Hyatt or at the Corner Bakery near the convention center. Not a lot of seating but the food is nummy.

See: http://www.kidsneedtoread.org/g... for info about the Geek Prom and http://www.phoenixcomicon.com/ for info about the con itself.

The main hotel is sold out but the other two con hotels still have rooms available. It is a great con and very inclusive of just about every form of sf/f geekage. Browse the guest list to see what I mean.

    For a group activity how about a breakfast gathering, because panels and programs run all afternoon and evening.

      Where is the location of that breakfast place? I will be staying at the Hyatt.

    Looking to share a hotel room with someone, anyone! I can crash on a couch or the floor if you have space!

      If you don't mind sharing a bed, I have room

    I have a friend who is looking for a roomshare. She has a room at the Hyatt (main hotel). Anyone looking for a room?

    Oh, get your Geek Prom tickets early!

      I'd be interested. I have the weekend off and a full weekend membership.

      Any chance she has crash space and needs someone else to help pay the room? :-)

    I'm dogsitting, so need to drive up and back every day. If anyone wants to carpool, please let me know - would love some company! My tentative schedule - Friday, leave Tucson around 8am (want to catch a panel at 10:30) and leaving PHX between 4 and 7pm. Saturday - at the con by 11:30, leaving around 7pm. Sunday - at the con by 10:30 or noon (depending on panels), leaving around 4pm.

      What's that other one - UFO? My photographer friend did an homage to that

      May 8, 2013

  • Marnee

    I had no idea this existed! I wish I had my Dragon*Con costume together already (Zev B3K). Also, love Babylon 5 and anything Straczynski, really. Maybe I'll go for a day. Cheers.

      Check out the Tucson Science Fiction & Fantasy meetup - we're getting together to watch Babylon 5 every couple of weeks!

    My idea is for those of us who are attending to meet there for some group activity like a dinner or to hang out at the Geek Prom. My partner and I are throwing a Babylon 5 party in honor of the 20th Anniversary celebration at the PHXCC this year. see: http://www.kidsneedtoread.org/geekprom.html for info about the Geek Prom and http://www.phoenixcomicon.com/ for info about the con itself.

    I take it back - single day registration for the weekend days DID sell out last year. Definitely register in advance, if you can!

    February 11, 2013

  • Kristi

    They won't sell out, but I highly recommend getting your membership (admission) in advance. It'll save a LOT of hassle once you get there. Full event registration is $50 (for 4 days of events!) - one of the best comicon deals anywhere. Here's the registration page: http://phoenixcomicon.com/page/10

    Will keep my eye out for further info.
