I had no idea that there would be open gaming tables in the tunnel going down to Lucas Oil Stadium (not sure if there were bathrooms close by but hey, tables to play games!). Opening up the additional space allows for some more possibilities like this that hopefully we can get better use out of next year.
Cracking open a new game (Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu) on a table in the Westin and I had three other people sitting down within minutes to help me puzzle out the rules and play. Being surrounded by gamers is a beautiful thing.
Hard Rock Café. In the 8 years we've been going to Gen Con we haven't ever eaten there. Saturday night we didn't get a chance to eat dinner until 8 and the shortest wait at a sit down restaurant we could find was 35-40 minutes. We were seated and served at the Hard Rock within 20 minutes of arrival. Looks like it might be worth while to repeat.
