The one thing that Sonic the Hedgehog loves more than speed and its chili dogs! During this year’s San Diego Comic Con, SEGA opened the Sonic Speed Café to serve a pretty good chili dog and other items themed around the blue blur and his friends. While SDCC came and went over the course of 4 days, the cafe would be open until August 20th. However it seems the pop up got a slight reprieve and will allow fans to enjoy their fine dining, activities and games until August 31st.
To celebrate the continued operation, SEGA has planned 3 special acoustic performances from members of the Sonic Symphony including its creator and producer Shota Nakama on August 18th. The first performance will take place at 11:30am and the details of the afternoon and evening performances will be shared via social media, probably @sonicspeedcafe.
For those who still can’t make it despite the extension, here’s a gallery of when I attended the cafe’s grand opening. I can still remember the chili dog like it was yesterday. Mmmm…chili dog.
The Sonic Speed Café will remain open until August 31st and is located at 910 J St Space 2, San Diego, CA 92101 within walking distance from Petco Field.
