Post in here to post pictures and share stories of things happening in the San Diego area for SDCC and Nerd HQ.

I'll start off with the first picture I took when I got here..

IN-N-OUT burger... TWO double doubles with grilled onions.

taken last night at the future location of Nerd HQ... Jolt'n Joes. if you like beer, try the Fat Tire.

NerdyCruz, welcome to the wonders of the In' N' Out burger. Did you get a shake???? When ever my eldest visited from college and got home, In 'N Out Burger was always on her list as a must-have.

Zac was outside NerdHQ for about half an hour today signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. I said a quick thanks for putting the HQ together and got a picture. He's so full of energy and optimistic about everything! What an awesome guy!

Seriously, thanks a million for posting your pictures.

I used to live in San Diego for 3-4 months and I never heard about Comic Con until a roommate of mine told me about it. This was back in 2009 and he had 4 friends crashing with us so they wouldn't have to book a hotel. We were perhaps 12 blocks from the convention center/gas lamp district and I was able to go on Sunday since they handed us their passes, although Sunday was quite lame since I had no expectations and no plans when I went.

I'll be going next year, I just need to get some affairs in order beforehand. The pictures were quite refreshing, I hope others do share their experience here.

so im playing Kinect...and dude walks through my game! 10 mins later I'm chatting with the Microsoft rep and he is standing two feet from me. My girlfriend is so pissed I did ask him for his autograph.. im sleeping on the couch tonight. Zach if you get a chance to read this...I need your help!

anyway props to the Nerd HQ crew for setting this all up. its far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the action on 5th avenue, that I do not feel overwhelmed by people. On the downside. JJ's needs to find a few more waitresses..perhaps one of the Blackshirts (security) could be volunteered to hand out menus etc. Menu was small and seemed pricey. I hope some of money for my meal went to Operation Smile! I'm tired but will be back again tomorrow.
