Parking garage attendant told me there is no where else to park anywhere around there; but at $9 for every in and out, including same day, I said I'd 'look around" anyway. Glad I was early and had time. There is free parking only 1/4...More

Pasadena has a very nice convention center. It’s practically brand new, and feels that way when you’re in the building. It’s smaller and much more intimate and makes for a nice small convention. It was nice that the event I attended moved to the Pasadena...More

Went to the convention center for AlienCon. Beautiful architecture, sprawling facility. Food center was pretty pricey. The cost for one hotdog, a bottle of water and a soda was almost $16.

The Convention Center itself is quite nice for smaller venues. Conveniently located to restaurants, hotels, etc. Alien Con was much to large an event to be at this location. Misfit Management was NOT on the ball with this.
