theCHIVE is throwing the best party at Comic-Con! You’re Invited!

The rumors are true. A few weeks ago, Corona Light approached us and asked if we might like to throw a massive bash at this year's Comic-Con? Yes, we can do that.

Can we bring an 800 lb. painted elephant and Mikhail Gorbachev? No.

Booze, beer, and admission must be free. Done.

To that end, we've been quietly crafting the biggest bash at this years' Con, Chive-Con. It all goes down at The Merk this Friday, July 13th at 10pm. We are opening up all the tickets to Chivers right now for free, first come, first serve.

The ground rules: You may only reserve a ticket if you will be in San Diego this weekend. You must provide your full name in the email and you CAN ask for a plus one. If you ask for more than a +1, your request will be considered invalid and ignored. The first 200 people to RSVP to chivecon [at] gmail [dot] com will receive tickets. You MUST receive a reply to confirm your reservation (allow 3-6 hours for reply). Must be 21 to attend.

You can wear whatever you want to this event within reason. This is a Chive party after all.

Also, as many of you know, I play Kevin Ellis on True Blood. Because Comic-Con celebrates our Fantasy and Sci-Fi artists, I am reserving a small block of tickets for actors, actresses, cosplayers, and my fellow industry peers. You can contact Mac at macthechive [at] gmail [dot] com to inquire about that.

If you're still reading this, you're probably too late. We'll see you this Friday the 13th!

  • Big ddd

    Anybody hear back from the chive yet? I got my response in pretty quickly… No word yet tho…

    • Paul Russell

      As did i and its been about 6 hours, still no word

      • SoCal Dude

        I am waiting as well. Sent email 10 minutes after this went live.

        Chive I have to go to class, and I don't think I will make it through the night not knowing if I got in.

        • Stella!

          Just got mine!

          • Big ddd

            Dang Stella how quickly did you get your request in?

    • tg0st

      I received mine an hr ago 🙂

    • Tep

      I sent my email and called my wife to submit also since we will have friends with us this weekend. She got a response back but I haven't and I sent my email first. Hoping I still might hear back.

      • tg0st

        Hmm makes me wonder if they are also selecting by gender based on the names given in the emails. The last SD meetup was pretty male dominated so I really wouldn't blame them.

      • big ddd

        I sent my email at 10:39am

        • tg0st

          I sent mine around the same time and received a response 2 hrs ago now.

          • big ddd

            oh well
            I really dont blame them either…it was perfect tho, wife and kids are outta town that weekend…

            • tg0st

              It usually works that way. KCCO 🙂 You never know, it could still be on the way.

    • SmokeyJane

      got mine in 4 hours!
