San Francisco Comic Con 2016

The con took place at the Marriott Marquis hotel in downtown San Francisco on Friday, September 2 through Sunday the 4th. This is a shot of the lounge and information area on the 2nd floor. Panels and games were spread out over the 3 floors directly above this one. The exhibitors/dealers room was 3 escalators rides down into the basement.

We got there Friday afternoon and stayed in the hotel for the weekend and I’m glad we did. Commuting via Cal Train each day would have exhausted this old bird even more than I already was. (Still in recovery mode to be honest) And the place was packed all 3 days which was made more noticeable by the fact that the venue was just too small.

But, honestly, none of that matters when you’re having a great time. I shared an elevator to a few other con goers and we naturally chatted a bit. A gentleman asked me what my favorite part was. My answer was easy – it’s the people I meet. That and spending time with my family. Now, I’ve only been to 2 conventions, but at both of them I have met some of the nicest, friendliest people ever.

I spent some time this last weekend sitting on a couch just enjoying watching people walk by. During one of these breaks something occurred to me. When you spend time in a room full of people who are doing what they love, you can’t help but have a great time right along with them.

So, without further ado, here are my pictures from the con.
