Travel to the mushroom planet, a world celebrating video game legacy, where classic 8-bit friends and foes run rampant. With the immersive décor, you’ll be dancing under the mushrooms and zooming down that rainbow highway, and themed drinks will keep the party going all night. Iconic flashback band The Flux Capacitors and famed pop-culture tune spinner DJ Elliot will take you on a musical journey through the 80’s and beyond. Watch out for a peachy performance by Violet on the Rocks as everyone's favorite 8-bit princess. Ready Party One has everything else that makes it the favorite party at SDCC since 2018, including incredible cosplay, arcade gaming experiences, complimentary airbrush tattoos from AlterEgos Tattoos, a special signature cocktail, and much more.
This 90's kids’ tv-themed Comic Con nightlife experience is the place to be for day 2 of XLE's Party HQ Comic Con at Parq Nightclub in the heart of the Gaslamp District. Hosted by Phil Moore (Nick Arcade) with Stephen Kramer Glickman (Big Time Rush) and Kal Smith, this will be an unforgettable night fueled by 90's childhood nostalgia. Be transported to a world where sponges reign supreme, high school kids morph into martial arts heroes, and your fate is determined by a double dare... Keep your eyes peeled for a pair of mice trying to take over the world! Whether you're sipping a neon cocktail, dodging super soakers, or doing the macarena with the midnight society, you will be immersed in 90’s kids’ tv-inspired sights, sounds, and tastes – all with a grown-up twist. Party to the familiar beats of the era, brought to you by the renowned Flux Capacitors. DJ Elliot will round out the night, spinning tracks that will keep you dancing ‘til past bedtime! Enjoy special guests from many of your favorite 90’s shows, cirque-style aerial performances, 90’s nostalgia cosplay, fun photo ops, complimentary airbrush tattoos from AlterEgos Tattoos, and a special themed signature cocktail.
