"The Bear" Pop-Up & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza Party Among Comic-Con San Diego Installations For 2024

July 10, 2024

A pop-up inspired by FX's The Bear and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pizzeria are among the installations coming to downtown San Diego as part of Comic-Con International 2024. 

Comic-Con International returns to downtown San Diego this July 25 through 28, featuring a whole host of events and venue takeovers. As in year's past, expect downtown to be reimagined into a pop-culture playground. 

Fans of FX hit series The Bear, which recently released its whole third season on Hulu, will be able to experience an activation on the Hilton Bayfront lawn. Attendees will be served a daily chef’s special featuring exclusive merch, while supplies last. At the FX pop-up, guests will also be able to pose for special photo ops at an It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia makeshift Irish bar. The offsite will be open for patrons 18 years old and over during the day throughout Comic-Con. 

There will also be a special Teenange Mutant Ninja Turtles pizzeria takeover at TNT Pizza in San Diego's East Village, organized by Super7 Action Figures. Dubbed Mikey's Pizza, expect a menu of TMNT-inspired pizza flavors, as well as limited edition toys and apparel. The Mikey's Pizza event will take place on Friday, July 26, from 7pm to close at 550 14th Street, Unit 116, in Downtown San Diego. 

Another popular installation, New Belgium Brewing will bring back its Shipwrecked Bar for the third year in a row. Docked behing Comic-Con's homebase of the San Diego Convention Center, the tall ship will serve an array of beers, hard tea, water and more, with purchases benefiting Lanfest, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that brings awareness to gamers and works with local and national charitable causes.
