Information on the Petco Park Interactive Zone!

This post originally appeared on the SDCC Unofficial Blog. Petco Park Events was kind enough to provide us with a map and hours for the annual Petco Park Interactive Zone, held just across the street from the San Diego Convention Center. This year the Interactive Zone brings us booths from upcoming movies like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Sin City 2, TV series including the Sleepy Hollow Headless-Horseman bridge, and a number of other activations, including the return of the Adult Swim Fun House. And — good news for foodies — the local food trucks will be on hand to help curve those convention-going appetites as well. Here’s the tentative layout and descriptions, below:  Zone Hours: Wednesday, July 23: 5:00pm (Preview Night) Thursday, July...

Ommegang Releases New “Game of Thrones” Ale

Ommegang Releases New “Game of Thrones” Ale

It’s no fun waiting until July to cover outside events, so when I saw that HBO and Brewery Ommegang were hosting a party in San Diego to celebrate the release of their new Game of Thrones themed beer, I jumped at the chance to attend. Held at the Tap Room in Pacific Beach, the release of Ommegang’s “Fire and Blood Red Ale” sold out within a few days of being announced. The event drew in a large crowd of Game of Thrones fans, as well as beer aficionados. Concurrent events were held in several cities this week (as announced on Ommegang’s Facebook page) with many a beer celebration taking place around the country. Just, hopefully, none of the Red Wedding variety. Game of Thrones-themed food was available at the Tap Room. I paired my Red...

Tuesday morning, over on Twitter, Zachary Levi posted the following:   A challenge has been set before me to show the power of our voices, so I charge you with shouting this: #IWantMyNerdHQ Let’s tell the world. — Zachary Levi (@ZacharyLevi) February 11, 2014 The call-to-arms was quickly picked up by the Twitterverse and the #IWantMyNerdHQ hashtag was soon trending in several cities. According to Hashtracking the tag generated 1,580,996 impressions. It certainly helped that other familiar HQ friends also joined in on the fun: Last Comic Con I partied at Nerd HQ and raised money for Project Smile.
