TWILIGHT FANS: Meet ‘Edward’ in San Francisco

Here’s a chance to be your kid’s best friend, so long as you don’t mind a really, really early wake-up call.
pattinsonRobert Pattinson, who plays Edward in the highly anticipated “Twilight” movie, will be at the Hot Topic store in San Francisco on Monday, Nov. 10. The first 500 people to purchase a Twilight Tour T-shirt from the store will get a wristband (limit two per person) guaranteeing them a place in line to meet “Edward.” The actor will sign a poster and then hang out briefly to answer questions about the movie, which is in theaters Nov. 21. (And sorry, no cameras are allowed.)

Pattinson will be at the Hot Topic store from 6-8 p.m. at Stonestown Galleria, 3251 20th Ave. So, why the early wake-up call? Turns out the store will allow customers to start lining up at 6 a.m. — no earlier. Considering the actor won’t appear until 6 p.m., I’d say 6 a.m. is early enough. Then again, my “Twilight”-crazy 11-year-old stepdaughter likely would say no hour would be too early.

  1. I guess my kids aren’t old enough yet. I have NO IDEA of what you speak….. mostly jibberish to my lips.
    Thank goodness. It sounds like a mind-numbingly dull way to spend the day.

  3. OMG!!! the mob was so out of control, they cancelled it! but the smart ones that stayed behind(like myself) will be getting an autographed poster from edward himself, the Q&A however is still up in the air!!! over 1,000 people showed up cops came, camera crews, news from every station and tons of chaos!!! but i still think it was worth it to go even though we were there @ 4am and still couldnt beat the mob…..WORTH EVERY MINUTE OF BEING A “SARDINE”…..=0) TEAM EDWARD!

  4. More than 3,000 mostly teenage girls showed up this morning to buy the T-shirt that would get them into tonight’s signing. The mob scene was so out of control, police canceled the event.
