So I had an idea for an experiment covering Comicon this year. I would post to my Facebook FandomFoodie Page in real time off of my phone. It would allow my Facebook Followers a more vicarious experience of my trip and allow to catch my thoughts before they vanished at day’s end, when I would have time to actually start writing the articles proper. However, after the first day I received some… discouraging feedback from other bloggers when I told them the idea. Ones who, in hindsight, don’t write to cover events. They said that I would be unable to properly edit the text over my phone and I would look like a fool. Though anyone who’s seen my cinematography knows that’s never stopped me before.
And when the con was finished I was promptly bombarded with breakthroughs in job searching as well as other labors, so I largely had time for quick posts and operating Facebook from my phone anyway. So I look around when I catch a breath and it’s suddenly the weekend in question is 2 weeks passed. I may get conflicting signals about how soon a deadline is for covering events and still being timely, but I consider this tardiness inexcusable. So to make it up to my Fellow Foodie Fanbase, I have compiled the entire list of Thursday Posts from Emerald City Comicon and presented them in chronological order. Please tell me what you think. Should I endeavor to attempt this all four days of Sakuracon over Easter Weekend? And how would you suggest I improve in the future? Please leave your comments below, and I’ll incorporate your input during coming events.

Located at the far corner of the second building of the convention center. One day I’ll try this place, preferably with a patreon. And while I’m dreaming, 2 girlfriends.

Not how I got here, but I hope it helps someone.

So the show opens at 2, and I just now heard that it was only for the art show. Also it seems I can already get laniards, programs and the rest elsewhere. Whoops. And to think I was in such a hurry. I gotta hit lunch before then.
I’ve left the line to seek out lunch, and on my way I tested my intel on the tower. Good intel, indeed.

I’m out in Seattle now so we’re going to discuss Starbucks the seventh and Pike Starbucks every Comic Con has a specialty drink created just for the convention. But this year and the last year there have been two drinks. In 2016 it was for Batman vs Superman with a drink for Batman and a drink for Superman, but this year it is one for the Hulk, and another for Groot.
As you can see I got the Hulk one. And Sakuracon faithful, I think you’re really going to like it. It’s the green tea frap with chips that we get at the specialty drink for that con, the Sakuracino. But it’s more filling and less crashing because of the added protein. Also the stronger chocolate flavor on account of the mocha drizzle. I’m not saying I prefer one or the other it’s a nice reminder. Also the other protein does make it a better lunch fare.
Also it seems this is not the only event being hosted 7th and Pike. I hadn’t heard of the other one, but it reminds me of to Past comic cons where there were two events in the same Convention Center same weekend. I’ll keep my eye out for you.
Alright, the big ticket item (so far as I’m concerned) the comic book grading process. Relocated from the location described in the cards handed out of the cons first floor, they provide a discounted service grading and packaging your used comic books faster and cheaper than one would normally find.
I still need to finish scanning some Batman issues before I Supply them, but I aim to be a paying customer myself this year.
