Jim Winsor’s Out & About: Comic-Con parties this weekend in San Diego

Comic-Con is here through the weekend, and if you don't have a ticket already ... forget about it.

Yep, it's sold out. As always. Tickets to this hugely popular convention typically sell out within days of going on sale the year before, thus you really need to plan ahead to be able to attend.

There are, however, a few Comic-Con themed events going on around Hillcrest, in which both attendees and non-attendees can mingle and get into the spirit of the weekend:

Comic-Con and Gaymer Night at Numbers

On Thursday, July 18, Varsity at Numbers and Global Male present a special Comic-Con and Gaymer Night, featuring hot guys, games, and drunken fun! The Global Male side will have hip hop and urban hits, while Varsity will be debuting a video game night with EDM/electro hits and porn star dancers.

Plus, there’ll be $5 Long Islands and $3 Fireball shots all night long, so, get ready for another rager!

Stud Night – Comic-Con Weekend at the Eagle

On Friday, July 19, the Eagle and B&R Production proudly presents Stud Night, with porn star Leo Forte. Come dress and your best leather, fetish and super hero gear.

Comic-Con Party at Rich’s

Also on Friday is the Comic-Con Party at Rich’s, with DJ Marcel and DJ Will Z. Get ready for a costume contest, free body painting, and a CD release party for Iggy Azalea.

L.L. Bear Comic-Con Edition at Rich’s

Rich’s pays tribute to Comic-Con again on Saturday night when it plays host to the L.L. Bear Comic-Con Edition party, featuring the music of DJ Taj and the go go dancing of Dangilo, GoGo Max, Dan Lovell, George Glass, and Alex Brazil.

Superheroes vs Supervillains at Spin Nightclub

Also on Saturday, July 20 will be the big Superheroes and Supervillains party at Spin Nightclub, the perfect place to put on display your inner super hero or villain. With discounted cover before midnight for those in costume, cosplay is highly encouraged.

DJ Marcel will open for the Perry Twins, and like all of these 3rd Saturday events at Spin nightclub, the fun will go until 4 am!

Superhero Night at Bourbon Street

And also this Saturday Bourbon Street will host Superhero Night, an evening of righteousness with DJ Lil Chris. And there’s no cover!
