So you want to go down to San Diego for Comic-Con 2015 but weren't lucky enough to get a pass (and who can blame you, they sell out within seconds!)? Is there really any reason to go? Are you just going to be wandering around an empty San Diego while all your friends are in the convention having the time of their lives?
We have good news. Pack your bags because you need to go to San Diego July 8-12! It's still one of the biggest pop culture events in the world, even outside of the convention gates. Best of all, there's plenty you can do all weekend, even without a pass.
Is there anywhere else you can run from zombies from The Walking Dead in beautiful California weather? How about going to a taping of Conan O'Brien with all SDCC-centric guests? Maybe screen a cut of a huge comic book movie that the world hasn't seen yet?All of this and more is happening July 8 through 12 in San Diego, all without a badge! Vote up the event you want to attend the most!
