    If you purchase a drink at the bar you can take it with you. I highly recommend getting one of the stadium cups made for the con to get cheaper Spotted Cow and soft drinks during your stay. You can get them at the merch table.

    A fair bit of Carousing and Drinking is acceptable, just don't be that guy.... the one that gets thrown out.

    My apologies for the delay. mordrin hit the high notes.

    I would note that in the past few years at The Grand, the back hall by, I think it's the Maple Lawn and Linwood rooms has seen a fair share of demo games and pickup games.

    If you keep your eyes and ears open you are likely to just see/hear people looking for players for a game.

    As you attend year after year, in my experience, those can become great friendships and opportunities for off-grid shenanigans.

    No doubt. Just was curious if you could have a beer during a long session...especially my 7 hour wargaming session Saturday night!

    FYI: I've got a Chainmail event from noon to 4 on Sunday with 3 tickets left and it's a drinking game, if interested and available: Eaters of the Dead.

    If we get another FE I'ld be happy to play. But Sunday is a drive home day after my gaming so I'll be abstaining that day.

    Crap, I keep forgetting they made all my events featured this year. Boo! Enjoy the con; it's a blast.

    Yes. You can have a beverage from the hotel in your gaming area. Many people have water, soda or beer. It makes the soda and beer stadium cups all the more useful!
