So I'll be attending my first NHC this year in Seattle and would like to get everyone's tips on making it out alive. I already have a Pre-Conference Tour booked on Wednesday and I'm planning to go to BNA7 (if the tickets ever go on sale
Besides the "it's a marathon not a race" advise or drink plenty of water, what do the seasoned professionals do to avoid those blinding hangovers?
Also, for the banquet on Saturday night, is it a rush to the tables when the doors open, like when there's a big sale at Penney's (Airplane! reference), or is it more subdued? Does everyone try to get the table near The Brewing Network because everyone wants to sit next to the cool kids?
I'm actually looking forward to some of the talks and seeing the voices in person.
36 days and counting!!
