Thank you for posting this. <3
I'm an older Con-go-er and sometimes I can't keep up with you pups
It's not a bad thing but I do cringe a bit when I see people being a little too wild. Many times the hotels DO warn other guest of the "events" but not always. I like the idea of trying to keep it down a little even during the day but ESPECIALLY at night!
It's a good thing to follow the rules and behavior that you would in any proper public setting. I am a little wary and nervous for people concerning weapons this year. I live in Colorado and with all the national news I've read of all the kids being shot, harmed or arrested over FAKE weapons is just absurd...and we are RIGHT next to LAX, so I do hope people use wisdom and caution and NEVER bring their weapon, no matter how absurd it may look, onto the streets and still be respectful on the main hotel lobby. I'm sure the ALA Staff will have that addressed, they're always on top of things like that! =D
I will say... I was so sad that the last night of the con the hot tub was overrun by people with make up on (lets not point fingers or blame anyone just take it as a LESSON) they had to drain and clean the WHOLE hot tub and it was closed to all hotel guests for a few days and well...guys really if you want in the hot tub or pool please follow some simple directions, shower first (or wash off before putting on your clean cosplay) no shoes NO make up!
and guys it's California, can we please NOT illegally smoke pot in your room? It is against hotel policy and you will be thrown out of the hotel when you are caught...and you will be caught. (and say what you will, yes some have bad reactions to it.)
Lets just be smart, have fun and be respectful of each other, of the hotel and the authorities. trust me you'll still have fun and you won't be in jail XD
