Comic-Con 2014: Preview Night

I can't believe it took me a whole year to get around to posting this.

July 23, 2014

The train ride to San Diego was non-eventful. A lot less people in silly hats. Picked up my bags and took a cab to the hotel. Had my friends check in ahead of time for me.

We got the Parlor Room at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. It had a couch with a pull out bed, a fridge, a large table and an amazing view. We had 3 extra single beds as well. One night we had 7 people sleeping in the room.

Nokia 808 | Aircraft Carrier

While I was unpacking, an aircraft carrier came by. It was huge. Afterwards was lunch at Richard Walker's Pancake House followed by a supply run at Ralphs.

Dinner was from Ralphs.  None of us had preview night that year, so we went over to the Noble Experiment for drinks.  They made the perfect Mint Julep.  Afterwards was ice cream at Ghirardelli.

I saw this statue behind the hotel.  It was promoting some Xbox One game.  The Xbox Lounge was hosted at the Hyatt.  I never got around to checking it out.
