For sure. I just thought I’d throw that out there cus I played in it with Nate Shivers last time I was there. Couldn’t stay for the finals, but figured why not put some scores up if I was there anyways. And now I have a California tournament on my IFPA profile.
Any places recommended for the morning and/or afternoon? I live close enough to San Diego that I can easily drive down there, but at the same time, said drive is about three hours, and I’d like to get home at a reasonable hour. Usually, I’ve left the city by 8 PM.
I’ve always been going to Nickel City by default, and I use Pinball Map to see what’s around, but I’d also like to hear some recommendations.
(Now I’m thinking I should’ve made such a list for downtown L.A. for Anime Expo, whose attendance numbers are catching up to San Diego Comic-Con’s.)
Harbor Town and Waterfront both open early in the morning. Coin Op opens at 12 on weekends ( it is a madhouse on Saturday nights tho). Kearny Mesa Bowl is cool too.
There’s nothing wrong w Nickel City, it’s the biggest lineup on location in SD. It’s just kind of out of the way for me, and since I work with children I prefer to not have kids all up in my stuff while I play. They also don’t serve alcohol…
I don’t mind going far out of my way to find some of these machines, as I already do that routinely. And whether a location serves alcohol or not is of absolutely no concern for me. At least as far as my path to and from Qualcomm Stadium (that’s my preferred parking place when visiting the San Diego Convention Center), I don’t really consider it that far out of the way. It’s just a hop off the freeway and a few minutes down. I’ve traveled to far more remote locations in the Los Angeles/Orange/Ventura area.
