Two Boots Pizza will also be serving up a signature “super” pizza, and Courtyard Marriott official hotel partner of New York Comic Con and New York Super Week is creating three delicious cocktail concoctions with The Fantastic Pour, a bombastic Blackberry Basil Collins, a gargantuan Grapefruit Tonic dubbed the Tonic Boom, and Secret Identity a variation of The Modern. All drinks will be served at The Bistro at the Central Park Courtyard location.
Additionally Wikia, the Social Universe of Fandom and the ultimate source for pop culture, entertainment and gaming expertise, will be bringing back its popular Wikia Fantasy Food Truck; at the event these foods will be available for a special preview tasting. During New York Comic Con Wikia will be serving for free fan-selected fictional foods from popular games and TV shows: Nuka-Cola from Bethesda’s Fallout franchise, Cookie Cat from Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe, Mabel Juice from Disney XD’s Gravity Falls, and Greedy Milk from Warframe. There will also be a special bonus item: Critical Rolls from Geek & Sundry. Stars from celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube, DJBBQ and Dulce Delight, helped to create one-of-a-kind recipes for the fictional winning foods, which will be served on Wikia’s Fantasy Food Truck daily during the show, beginning at 2:00 PM on Thursday, October 8 and running while supplies last.
“New York Comic Con and New York Super Week are true city-wide celebrations. As our Fans are traveling all across the boroughs, we want to be able to provide them with some fun – and delicious – offerings along the way,” said Lance Fensterman, Senior Global Vice President. “We want to thank our partners and encourage our Fans to eat, drink, and be geeky!”
These delicacies are additions to the already announced 2015 Brooklyn Defender IPA – an exclusive brew created as the Official Beer of New York Super Week and New York Comic Con. The Brooklyn Defender IPA is a bright, juicy IPA with a reddish twist from a dash of roasted malt, a “super-powered beer” that will maintain constant vigilance to battle back the blandness lurking around the edges. This year’s rendition will be available at Brooklyn Brewery and select bars and restaurants across the Tri-State area, available for the first time bottled, as well as on tap.
New York Super Week Card holders can enjoy discounts and incentives at dozens of other bars, restaurants, retailers, and exhibits throughout New York City, ranging from drink specials and meals discounts, to priority seating and reduced admission at select New York Super Week events and venues.
