Jim Winsor’s Out & About: Nerd Pride (Comic-Con) celebrated in San Diego

Whew! San Diego Pride weekend has just come and gone, leaving most of us exhausted. But there’s no time for rest, as this coming weekend is … Nerd Pride!

Yes, Comic-Con is this weekend, and if you don't have a ticket already ... forget about it.

Yep, it's sold out. Tickets to this hugely popular convention typically sell out within days of going on sale the year before, thus you really need to plan ahead to be able to attend.

There are, however, a few Comic-Con themed events going on around Hillcrest, in which both attendees and non-attendees can mingle and get into the spirit of the weekend:

Thursday, July 24

9 pm: Muscle Unmasked at the Brass Rail

10 pm: Comic-Con #WET Party at Bourbon Street

10 pm: Geek Boy/Girl Night at Gossip Grill

Friday, July 25

7 pm: House of Styles Comic-Con Drag Show at Numbers

10 pm: 10th Annual Heroes vs Villains After Party at Rich’s

Saturday, July 26

10 pm: Comic Con Underwear Night at the San Diego Eagle

SDPIX 12 Year Anniversary Party at Rich's

Wow, it’s hard to believe it has been this long, but San Diego Pix is celebrating its 12th anniversary this Saturday night at Rich’s, with a huge blowout birthday party.

The night will feature complimentary cake and champagne from 10 to 11 pm, a red carpet photo shoot, and music by DJ Taj. Also, staff will be on hand giving away our coveted SDPIX VIP Memberships stickers. See you all there!
