24 SEPTEMBER 2015
Remember, you can still attend all 4 days of Emerald City - just buy a 3-day badge and a Thursday and you're set. (Or you can buy all single days.) But ECCC just warned that the 3-days are about to sell out so move fast - like now - if you were thinking of getting a ticket.
I've had a flurry of conversations last night and this morning with SDCC attendees who are either going to ECCC for the first time or thinking about it. They saw yesterday's ticket mania and realized that Emerald City is hot for a reason. So here's my advice: if you can afford to go to Emerald City (and the tickets and hotels are reasonably priced, in my opinion), hop off the fence and go. You won't regret it.
I saw a lot of people on Twitter saying they couldn't buy a ticket until next week or their next paycheck. That's just not an option. Borrow the $85 from your mom, panhandle by your nearest overpass, do whatever you need to do, and buy that ticket today.
ETA: And they're gone. But fear not - all single day tickets are still available. Saturday will be the next to go so I'd get on that action if I were you.
