SDCC 2018 Prep: Superhero Food and Drinks

What is more important than those exclusive merchandise and scoring autographs at San Diego Comic-Con 2018? The food and drinks, of course– which I am ALWAYS a huge fan of! This year, restaurants and bars in the Gaslamp at downtown San Diego are pulling all the stops all weekend with themed beverages and meals to celebrate our collective nerd party for the long weekend on July 18 until July 22nd. Want to know where to get the tastiest treats? Check out our list below!

Get your Captain America waffle on at Café 222 on Island Avenue: a malted waffle shaped like Captain America’s shield, topped with fresh berries and whipped cream.

For the Star Wars fans, check out Prohibition Liquor Bar on Fifth Avenue where you can order drinks called Never Tell Me the Odds (Redemption Rye,demerara, Averna and R&D house bitters), I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing (El Silencio Mezcal, watermelon cordial and R&D smoke bitters), or Let the Wookie Win (bourbon, lime, ginger and Fernet).

The Different Faces of Vancouver

Downtown Vancouver 2010

The first thing I noticed about Downtown Vancouver is the diversity of its architecture. Also, it was a smaller city and we could literally walk to a destination and get there in less than an hour. Every few blocks and every turn, the buildings and the scenery could change. Suddenly, it made sense why this city is a known Hollywood favorite to use as a film location. Vancouver could literally look like any city in the world! Which made it perfect for the Supernatural series because the Winchester brothers are constantly traveling across the United States. Every inch of Vancouver and its surrounding towns have been transformed into a U.S. city for the show it seems.

Oh yes– did I mention one of our primary reason to visit Vancouver was to attend the Supernatural convention? That will be a separate blog report! For now, enjoy some photos from our trip and sightseeing around the city.
