This year the team that provides (what I feel) some of the better coverage in comics journalism will be swagging it out in style this July. The CBR people are no strangers to having a pimpish boat during Comic-Con. It is a cool and practical place to hold your base after all with the marina right behind the convention center.
I might ask them if I am cool enough to party with them this year. I will be wearing boating shoes and know how to make a KILLER vodka/cranberry smoothie.
