This is our main list–it will get longer every day. No badge? No problem! These offsites and events are scattered all across the Gaslamp District–and further–in downtown San Diego during Comic-Con. You can GHOST Comic-Con, which means hang out at the events even if you don’t have a badge into the convention.
