We are only a few short hours away from the first confirmed official panel announcements for San Diego Comic-Con 2017, but we’ve learnt enough already that that is going to be a truly epic event, one that we’re going to be talking about for years to come. So, erm, why not start talking about it, the very day after it all wraps up, yeah?
That’s right – the annual Englishman In San Diego Post-Con Wrap-Up hangout is back for another hit, and somehow we’re going to try and top last year’s sumptuous affair. In 2016, you may have found us on a swish boat on the Bayfront Marina but, for this years Bottle O’ Water show, we’re going to be bringing direct from the poolside of a swanky Downtown San Diego hotel on Monday 24th July!
The Andaz San Diego is a stunning boutique Hyatt hotel in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter, just a few short blocks from the Convention Center and providing an incredible view of the city from its gorgeous rooftop pool. And we have been very lucky to have secured one of the cabanas by the pool to host this years show, where we’ll pour over the hectic weekend just been and share our memories, highlights and thoughts of SDCC 2017.
The show will be hosted by my good self, Leonard Sultana, my ever-present partner-in-crime Alyssa Franks (Friends Of Comic Con Forum), and regular contributor to the Cup O’ Tea shows, Mark Searby (who we’ll do our best to keep his pimping of his rather excellent Al Pacino book on the show to a minimum!) Of course, we’ll be live streaming the whole affair live (Monday 24th July, 11am PT / 2pm ET / 7pm GMT) so you can join in and contribute your favourite moments on the show, too – our audience is what we do our shows for so we’d love to have you along.
However, that’ll be nothing compared to actually being there with us, in person. As well as some surprise special guests, we’re also inviting TEN lucky people to join us on the show, sipping cocktails (or much needed hangover-reducing H20, in some of our cases) and basking in the balmy California sun, poolside. We’re going to be announcing how you can join us on this weeks Cup O’ Tea live podcast so do tune in this Sunday to find out how you can take part!
We’ve gone from hijacking the wifi in a downtown hotel, to bobbing around on Bayfront boats, to taking over a San Diego Hotel pool, just like dem celebrities. Whatever shall we get up to next??
Thanks so much to the Andaz’s Chris Wingerberg for helping us set this event up, which we could not have done without his help and generous assistance!
