This was my first ALA, and overall it was a good time. I came with my boyfriend, who manned the PMX fan table throughout the weekend, and I really had a good time! I will echo some of what others have said about the Dealer's Hall, the alcohol, and the crowds. The crowds especially felt bad whenever I either a) was on a schedule and needed to get somewhere, and/or b) I was in my ballgown Saturday pre-Masquerade. I learned to compensate by leaving extra 'cushion' time to reach scheduled meetings/events so I didn't have to run or risk being late.
Everyone was awesome! Special thanks to the Masquerade people, my first masquerade rocked!
