While you’re waiting to hear whether you got that awesome Gaslamp hotel or one way out in Mission Valley, check out our list of San Diego/Comic Con International tips.
Downtown San Diego’s nighttime skyline, seen from Harbor Island across the bay to the west. You can see the light trails from a couple of boats. The yellowish sky is the reflection of street lights on low-lying clouds. I have a wider shot that shows how much darker the sky is away from the city.
This was taken during last year’s Comic-Con. I figured I’d post it this week because the first round of hotel rooms go on sale this Wednesday. These are non-refundable, outside of downtown, and in some cases specific packages with minimum stays, but if you already have tickets and want to avoid the “Hoteloween” rush when the rest of the rooms go on sale, it might be worth taking a look.
Either way, you might be interested in my collection of Tips for Comic-Con.
San Diego has approved the expansion to the San Diego Convention Center. If it survives challenges, it’ll be complete in 2017. The next question, of course, is whether Comic-Con International will still be in town by then. Source: The Beat.

Wait, I thought Nite-Owl became a mechanic, not a bartender.
