The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events


By Tom Spurgeon

* this has come and gone. Still such a big show in so many ways. Congratulations if you go the hotel you want. Condolences if you didn't, but don't worry: you can have a good time at all of them. I've stayed up to an hour and ten minutes away, in a range from lovely boutique facilities to scumbag dive motels, and while a great hotel is something to enjoy, no San Diego hotel has ever played a significant role in my overall enjoyment of any trip.

* Dan Brown profiles Tingfest, the kind of show that could have its own quirky Netflix series.

* here are some tips in publicizing your convention event.
