    Bought my 4-day pass months ago (though not with premier). Just need to figure out my plane+hotel deal is all. My bro is going and a good amount of friends are.

    It really sucks that they sell the tickets this far in advance. I'd love to go next year, but I have no idea what I'll be doing around that time.

    You could always buy the tickets. And you'll have until the middle June to get a full refund.

    I'm certain you could, but I'm wondering if you'd be able to get into any of the hotels on their list. I'm guessing all/most of their rooms are already reserved for the Con.

    You're from New York. Don't you learn how to mug people in grade school or something?

    I tried to raise money for Comic-Con based on a regional stereotype as well. I just got in trouble.

    Apparently, slave trading has been outlawed for sometime.

    And then you can knock him out and steal his wallet. Excellent plan! :up:

    That's why they call them 'Escort Services' now.

    I saw that the hotel 'lottery' is starting up in March. I am going to attempt to get a suite in the Hilton as that is a better rated hotel then the Marriott. Now if I do get the room I want, I will offer up my room at the Marriot which I already paid for at a big discount. It is a deluxe room on the concierge level.

    Other then that, I was wondering who would be up for having one group dinner or lunch from Wednesday to Sunday?

    I'm even more interested in the Marriot now because I can get a night free. So if the price per day is right...

    Which Marriot is it?

    Ok, I think I went to two panels in that one. Seemed pretty nice.

    These are the room details by the way:

    Concierge level, Guest room, 1 King or 2 Double, Bay view, South Tower

    The room costs for the 4 nights including taxes about $2k. I will accept significantly less if I am successful at getting a room in the Hilton or upgrading to a suite.

    4 nights? I need 6. Although I could grab a cheap room somewhere the first and last night since I won't be under a time crunch.
