    Well, I have a little news about a certain hotel downtown. While I was walking by, I noticed that the Pickwick has finally closed it doors with the sign stating..."Thank you very much for choosing the Pickwick over the last eighty years. We are now closed."
    There are construction crews inside right now tearing it up. The hotel was open last week, as far as I know.

    /\ Awww... so sad. I have some theatre seats from the old North Park theatre which opened in 1927 complete with "vintage gum" on the bottom of the seat. If you can sell William Shatner's kidney stone on ebay, I wonder how much I'd get for vintage gum?

    Anyway, back on topic. Luigi, I've contacted Justin Dutta at Comic con about the club buying a $850 table on the dealers floor this year. Quite a few club members expressed interest in donating towards a table. He told me that the Executive Director might not want to sell a table to a fan club this year, and he'd get back to me. Do you know anything about this because it is something new, since we have had either a table or a booth on the dealer floor for the past 4 years.

    If there was something I could share to the board, I would. As far as this, I have no information about this so you have to wait for their decision. Sorry :(

    I have a question on the hotels - do you have to pay up front when you reserve or do they just take your credit card #?

    They take your credit card number, you do not have to pay up front.

    Thats great Jess! And its appropriate, since the main actors appear in Veronica Mars as well, which is shot right here in San Diego.

    Just remember, the time to call the Comic Con Hotel hotline is tomorrow at 9am pacific.
    I know people have had bad luck with them in the past but it is the recommended way to reserve and to get the discounted convention price.

    Marriot points.. hmmm... I have some, don't think I have enough to get a really good deal though. Worth looking into anyway.

    yeah, my dad said all the point rooms at the marriott marina are already reserved, same with the gaslight. Only thing is I don't know if the courtyard will get a deal this year. I was looking in the Update#1 and the list in the back didn't have it... but who knows, could be wrong.

    I am booked from the 18th to the 24th, so I have a few extra nights if anyone wants to do something or needs help with anything.

    I would love to go to the zoo but that may have to wait. I just want to see San Diego - from what I have seen its beautiful and I may never leave again.

    A trip to the beach is a must from what I understand... I will do some research and let you know what I find.
