    2011 SDCC Fan Get-together! - Post here if you are attending!

    The fan get-together will start at
    6pm
    on Friday, July 22nd,
    at Hennessey's (click here for bar info and location).

    We're doing things a bit different this year.
    As a surprise last time, Emiliano and I paid the bar tab for all the fans. Buuuuuut, that got a little out of control.
    Since the cat is out of the bag about the drinks, we're going with drink tickets this year to help keep things in check, especially since it's just Emil and I footing the bill. We ain't made outta money!

    For 2011, Orgers get four free drink tickets.
    Each ticket gets you a draft beer or well-brand drink. (well-brands, for those who don't know, are the cheap booze used in mixers)
    If you have a specific drink request, you will have to buy it.
    If you run out of drink tickets, you have to buy additional drinks.
    No matter what, please tip the bartenders!

    There will be finger foods and snacks available, but please eat a little something before you come! They are there as snacks through the night, not as your evening meal.
    Alternatively, you can order a meal there at the get-together. A number of fans did this last year. Check out Hennessey's site for their menu.

    Last time I left around midnight, but fans were still there until about 1am.
    You do not have to show up right at 6pm, but it's great if you do because I'll be going around getting quotes from fans to air on Roast Gooble Dinner. Eamon and Emiliano also had some of their artwork for sale which sold out quick. So there are benefits to coming early.
    You can also leave whenever you want, but we hope you'll stick around the entire time! Things tend to get crazier as the night goes on.

    Also, we're told various creators may show up to hang out with us.
    Last year Raymond Makowski from Mattel, Chris and Cornboy from the 4H and comic book creators Tim Seeley and Dan Norton all showed up.
    We expect even more surprise visits this year.

    To qualify for a badge and drink tickets, you must be a He-Man.org member!
    You have to be an existing member of He-Man.org to attend (this is to avoid people signing up after this announcement just to get free drinks).
    You may bring other people with you, but they attend on their own dime.

    If you plan to attend, you need to post here.
    I will follow up via PM.



    Drunk Skunk, illustrated by Nate "Baena" Baertsch, will show you the way off the streets of San Diego's Gaslamp and into the pub!
    We hope to see you there!

    Oh yeah, I'm there. Got my He-Man.org shirt already packed in my SDCC survival kit.
    Had the best time last year. One of the highlights of the con for me. I had to duck out early for other obligations, but not this year. I'm keeping Friday night's schedule clear just for this event.
    Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year and hopefully meeting some new faces.

    I couldn't get tickets to SDCC, but I am seriously considering coming out to SD for Friday evening anyway.
    It's only a 6 hour drive.

    I'll be there, and yes please on the SpyMonkey products, I missed you last year, when I got to the booth, I was told I missed you by 5 minutes. I hope to get some Cosmic Enforcer weapons. And I look forward to some new artwork from Eamon and Emiliano.

    I will be there!

    I'm psyched to actually meet everyone in person - I think that's going to be very interesting!!

    That bar looks fun too. I will probably be starving at 6pm, so I will be happy to get there for the food LOL

    Both of you not being there is VERY disappointing for me I know they do release tickets via ebay... I know a few people who have been able to go, last minute, that way in the past. They didn't pay much more for them actually.

    They have a pretty good menu. A number of folks ordered from it last year.
    I need to add that to the above. I'll do that here in just a few moments.
