Recovery-Con 2014 Dinner Meet-Up

Comic Con is all about having a great time and meeting new people but for some it is more than that. A few weeks ago I was contacted by a reader with a serious story and asked for my help with an event he has created.  He has created the first ever Recovery-Con 2014 Dinner Meet-Up – A place for people to talk and mingle with others who are or have struggled with some type of an addiction.

The website is: Nerds In Recovery

This is a great event and many of us have at one point or another been faced with some type of an addiction. Without revealing any details, here is something that was written in the email:

Comic-Con has become quite the little party scene in recent years and I thought it would be cool to create a safe after party for people in recovery (drugs included) to meet, share stories, network and have fun!

I know there are also a lot of others (half the artist and writers!) at Comic-Con who also have similar struggles. Anyway, I was wondering if you or your website would be interested in helping get the word out?

There isn’t much time left (I just thought of this recently) and I could use all the help I can get. If you know anybody who may be interested in this please let them know as well.


As you can tell this is an event to help people who struggled with an addiction and is a great way to meet and mingle with others who were faced with similar challenges.

Here is more info on the event:

Recovery-Con 2014 Dinner Meet-Up

When:  Saturday, July 26th, 8:00 P.M.

Where:  Luna Grill, Hillcrest Location  (Three miles from the convention)

350 University Ave

San Diego, CA 92103


Details: If you are going to Comic-Con and in recovery from addiction or even still struggling and want a safe, fun place to socialize, network and have fun with others in recovery then come on down to Luna Grill Hillcrest on the evening of Saturday, July 26th at 8 P.M. for some great Mediterranean fair!  Luna Grill in Hillcrest is a strait three miles down 4th street to University Ave and very easy to get to. They will be expecting us.


Carpooling: Seeing as how by that point we will all be sick and tired of walking the Con for those that want to team up early and get a taxi, use Uber or even rent one of those bicycle buggies (you know you’ve always wanted to) then some of us will be meeting at 7:15 at Horton Plaza at the corner of Broadway and 4th.  If you want to know how to find us there (it’s clever)  email me at nerdsinrecovery@gmail.com.


Additionally, I see this meeting as laying the ground work for future similar events that have loads of potential as they grow. To that end, I will be looking for people at the dinner who have ideas on how to grow and expand the Recovery-Con movement.


Thanks and I look forward to seeing you there.
