Party Tiger 2.0: SDCC 2015 Party List of Where to Shake Your Nerd Booty

Alright, team.

It’s that time of year, where once again, WE ENTER… THE SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON PARTY TIGER. The Party Tiger represents the true beast within us all, ready for action, scotch in hand, prepared to take one for the team and convince any doorman that THE TIGER IS ON THE LIST. Above all, Party Tiger is loyal to her friends, no matter what glitzy Hollywood party happens, she is loyal to her pack, and not a ditching digeri dingo! Parties are no fun without friends! So come with us… and EMBRACE YOUR INNER PARTY TIGER for Comic Con!!

This was me at Comic Con. Well, the tiger head was actually a backpack. And it got a lot of attention--some good, some bad, haha.

If you remember anything from our post about last year at San Diego Comic Con, it’s that we all owe it to ourselves, our friends, and OUR (lack of) DIGNITY to party until our guts say STAHHP! We had a kick ass time hanging out with nerd personalities, celebs, and, most importantly, our awesome friends last year, and this year is definitely going to be no different… with a little planning! We’ve once again whittled down the list of parties to those that meet our Party Tiger criteria: LOW cost, WON’T be a giant B to get into, and ACTUALLY sounds like fun people will be there!

If you’re thinking to yourself, “Ho hum, maybe I won’t party too hard… I’ve been to SDCC plenty of times…,” THEN WE SAY UNTO YOU… “NAYYYY!”

Now listen up: With the ever increasing scarcity of hotel rooms, I’m sure more than a few of you readers will be stacked like sardines with 8 other people in a 4-person room, your sleeping space sectioned off under a table where you have a small array of snacks and water so you do not die during the night. LOOK, trust us, WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE, and that’s even MORE reason to say FAREWELL to sleep, and commit to being the best Party Tiger you can be.

And if you wanna know where WE are during the con, we will be all over social media , sharing party info, snapping pics of amazing nerds, and probably posting one too many selfies the drunker we get. TALLY HO:
