Don't have a San Diego Comic Con badge this year? Don't fret! This year San Diego Comic Con is blowing up with events outside the San Diego Convention Center! The SDCC campus is bigger and better than ever. Check out my ten favorite events to attend during this years Comic Con 2016!
1. Game of Bloggers meet-up: Wednesday, July 20. 9:00 PM - 12:00 AM Dragon's Den 315 10th Ave.

Hosted by nerd community rockstar Tony Kim of Crazy 4 Comic Con, meet up with nerd bloggers, content creators and fans alike! Last year it reached capacity fast so make sure you get there early! This is the best place to meet and hangout with all of your favorite SDCC friends!
2. SherlockeDCC: Saturday July 23rd. 9th Floor of the San Diego Central Library.

The best view in town! In it's 4th year, I'm sad I'll be missing the shenanigans for the first time this year.
3. Geek Girl Brunch: Saturday July 23rd: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM. The Blind Burrito 639 J Street.

Watch for daily LIVE programming with the biggest names in comics, film, gaming, and pop culture, plus access to the latest news from Hall H & more. I'm thinking this will be similar to the WB stage a few years ago. It was an exiting place to be {WB stage pictured above.}
