Despite staying in a Motel 6 on the east side of San Jose and driving around for over an hour looking for parking on Saturday, Silicon Valley Comic Con was actually really awesome!! Located in the nerd mecca, Silicon Valley is a perfect area to host their own con.
Saturday: As I stated above, a good hour or more of my Saturday was spent driving around looking for parking, which peaked my frustration. Anxiety set in as I began walking to the Convention Center and I started to realize I had to locate where to pick up my press pass. Walking in to the main entrance, surpassing the line that wrapped around the city block, I was able to see an easily spotted sign directing me to pick up press and VIP passes. I picked up my pass and was on my way! I jumped back into the huge line with my fiance and some friends of ours and I was happy to see that the line actually moved really quickly. We were kept fairly entertained with some guys trying to encourage people to sign their petition to legalize marijuana while arguing with another gentleman that was discouraging people from signing it. Down the line a ways there was a Christian gentleman kindly reminding attendees to turn to the way of the Lord or burn in Hell. Shortly after, my group got their wristbands and WE WERE IN!!
