There is so much more to the Comic-Con experience than just the convention. If you were one of the faithful few (thousands) that couldn’t score a ticket, there is still a lot to do in downtown San Diego during the Con. There are parties, Tweet-ups, viral campaigns, and smaller events to fill your nerd tank. As a huge CHUCK fan, I got to give a shout out to the Nerd HQ event sponsored by Zachary Levi’s Nerd Machine. The Nerd Machine team has worked hard to offer an alternative con experience for SDCC attendees and non-attendees alike. Besides creating a gathering point for geeks to mix and mingle, they are also offering some panels from industry actors, creators, and professionals. Some are sold out but here are a few ‘Conversations for a Cause’ that are still available:
- Dominic Monaghan (LoTR, LOST)
- Cast of Psych
- Zachary Quinto (Heroes, Star Trek)
- Scott Bakula (Star Trek Enterprise, Quantum Leap)
- And more!
PS. Thanks Zac for your creativity and vision to make this happen!
