Diamond Select Toys Turns San Diego Eatery into the DST Lounge!
July 2014 - Comic-Con International is an experience, to be sure, but sometimes you just need to get out of the convention center! San Diego's nearby Gaslamp District offers a variety of options for fun, food and drink, and Diamond Select Toys has always had their favorite for all three: Taste and Thirst on 4th. So this year, DST is taking it over and turning it into the DST Lounge from July 24-26!
