This blog is for all the Comic Con-ers out there. You know who you are. You know who you are but did you know we heart you? We do! I, Boardwalk Betty, follow the #sdcc conversation on twitter. These tweets from last year made me realize that I needed to reach out to you! We are mere minutes from the San Diego Convention Center and while the line to enter may stretch to our doorstep we are here to keep you entertained!
A few of our stores, in particular, are excited to have you in our neck of the woods. American Nostalgia for example...
From tin signs, to lunch boxes and the ever popular t-shirt- American Nostalgia is helping you represent. The few photos above do not even encompass the selection. They have the following characters represented in their store...
Gumby & Pokey
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Felix the Cat
And then there is the Village favorite, The Village Hat Shop. Do you have a Comic Con hat need? Oh boy, do they have you covered!!
And specifically for Comic Con The Village Hat Shop is going to have a Fez Hat Giveaway! Word on the street is that if you visit their store and and say "fezzes are cool" you will get a FREE FEZ while supplies last. Follow them on twitter, they will be hash tagging that tweet #DoctorWho. Hello?! Do they have your back or what?!
Others in the Village will be showing you the love too:
- Silver Crossing is offering $5 off a purchase of $25 or more
- Seaport Oil & Vinegars is offering 10% off your entire purchase
- Marion's Fish Market is offering buy one fish taco and get the 2nd FREE!
All offers are valid July 12-15 and you must show your Comic Con badge to redeem. I am sure these are not the only discounts being offered to Comic Con peeps... keep your badge visible and ask stores/restaurants if they have any specials deals going for you crazy kids. I know they are excited to welcome you with open arms!
So come visit us either before or after you visit the Comic Con madness. I think you will be happy you did.
WELCOME to San Diego!
