Room Party

I think I'm going to throw a room party at Ohayo Con this year (that's if its alright with my roommates). It will probably be on Friday night and I'll be staying in the Drury Inn.

Does anyone know of a store near the convention center that you can by soda, and snacks and such that is within a short walking distance?

Thanks. Maybe I'll be luckily enough to find someone that has a car.

You really do not have to go very far from the convention. ^_^

The food court is perfect for getting snacks to bring back with you on your way to the Drury Inn, and I remember the pizza stand can make a WHOLE pizza, so that'll help you if you want to get one or more for guests. (It can get busy, so order in advance if you can.) And I know that a few food places stay open late (maybe midnight or 1am.)

I'm not even sure what room my room will be yet at the Drury Inn. It will probably be the night of the Peelander Z concert since many of us have seen them already. I will try to get a map up soon.

Though someone suggested me to do a "Theme" party. What do you guys think about it?

to get to market, you go north on high street, cross the street and walk west on vine and you'll see the giant sign for north market, it's got a giant rooster on it. Actually, for those of you staying on the north side of the hyatt, you'll be able to see it out your rooms a little to the left of high street.

While north market has a wide variety of food, including snacks, even japanese snacks and sushi-to-go, some of it is more pricey then going to a store.

My recommendation is bring more than what you need, that way you wont have to deal with walking in the cold and you'll have everything pre-set and avoid scrambling around.

Thanks! I've found someone that has a car that is willing to get stuff for the party. What kind of good snacks and drinks should I get? I never threw a room party at a con before.

Soda of any kind (Coke Pepsi Dr.Pepper Mountain Dew), any kind of chips and maybe candies as well.

Theme... uhhh well, um it's a convention party, so it doesn't really ask for a theme though.

I dunno, I never threw a convention party either.

It's official. The room party will be the night of the Peelander Z concert (Friday night, I believe). The party will start around 10 or 11 but my roomies and I will be going around with signs for most of the evening. It will be in the Drury Inn, which is connected to the con center. All are welcomed. No smoking, since its a non-smoking room.

just remember to keep your noise in check. Downtown c-bus hotels are notorious for calling police to shut down late (past 11pm) room parties.

I've heard that at most hotels if you have key and a id, they will give you booze for free at their bar. But it could only be certain hotels. I'm planning on trying it though, just to see if it will work.
