300 (the movie) Event At Comic-Con

Last night, my friend Xavie (he works at Petco Park) was telling me about a huge event for the movie 300 and its worldwide DVD release coinciding with Comic-Con this weekend. Street posted it this morning but didn't really go in to detail and since the "contest" to win ComicCon passes, airfare, and a chance to be in the final challenge is over, I thought I'd pass along what Xavie told me.

The 300 event will take place on Friday at 7:30 pm at Petco Park. The event (though details on what exactly the "event" will be are hazy) is free but limited to 5000 people who visit the 300/Warner Brothers booth at Comic-Con to get their passes. I don't know if there's any "challenge" to get them or if you get them simply by asking, but if I get more deets, I will post them here.

In a semi-related issue, for you Comic-Con attendees looking for some good grub before a day of adventure, check out Richard Walker's for breakfast. It's at 520 Front Street and is a short walk from the Convention Center but should get you away from the mobs on 5th and 6th Avenues. It's open from 6:30 a.m.-2:30 pm and they have kick ass waffles, omelettes, pancakes and simple bacon and eggs. (East coasters will recognize the menu from Bickford's in Boston, started by Richard Walker's family)
