NYCC Meet and Greet!

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio

Can you believe New York Comic-Con is here, already? It feels like the big event just snuck up on me! Crazy! So, since so many of you announced that you will indeed be in attendance, I figured it would be cool to do a meet up with all the cool people that visit and support Comicvine. I was a little torn about the location of where to meet up. Since Times Square isn't that far from the Jacob Javits Center, I thought the Hard Rock would be a perfect place for everyone to get together. Then I thought to myself, the Hard Rock Cafe on a Friday night in Times Square? No, thanks. I'd rather be forced to wear a Power Girl costume for 9 hours. So I decided on this cool pizza place near the convention center called Ovest Pizzoteca. It's a really cool brick oven pizza place not far from where the show will be held, and it will probably be a little bit more quiet. So, if you want to meet me and talk comics, here are the details.
 
What: Meet up!
Where: Ovest Pizzoteca, 513 West 27th St 
When: Friday, October 8th at 6:30 PM
 
Hope to see you there!

How late do you guys plan on staying? Or does that really depend on how many shots you have?

A Meet Up sounds as if it could be fun, but New York is a tad outside of my  commuting distance.

#20 Posted by Krakoa (550 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh, damn, I'll be leaving the Con around 5, to rush over to the American Carnage Tour at Nassau Colisseum. Oh well. Hopefully that doesn't rule out a quick hello earlier in the day.

I have a weekend pass for Comic Con, although I am a bit nervous about going to this meet-up considering I don't really know anyone from Comic Vine. Nor am I really into comics. 
 
Maybe I'll stop by and get some pizza?
