We also threw a room party. It was a huge success, but I ended up being paranoid most of the night since the 1st noise complaint came it at 8:30. WTF?!? Lots of people poked their heads in to check things out, but I think they were disappointed when they didn't see a roomful of mascots having sex on the floor.
I was a bit shocked to hear that outside of us and the Star Wars crowd, there were no other parties. That explains why no one knew how to handle us when I kept inquiring about room party policy and such. I then heard there had been drama between the Star Wars crowd and the con board. The board wants to keep the con more of a literary event while the others want a more general sci-fi event. Our presence may stir the pot a little more. Oh noez! Now teh furrehs are invading!
We're debating on whether to do it again next year. We have some fur-friendly folks on staff which is nice. I'd like to work it out where we have an actual con-sanctioned party so we don't have to worry about noise complaints. Maybe I need to get a suite or discuss stuff with the hotel beforehand. I also don't want this to get too complicated. *shrugs* We'll just see what happens. I would definitely love to suit a lot more at the next con.
Here are a few pics:

Nevada loved the recliners in the lobby. Well, until someone sat on his lap for a pic and the chair flipped. Ooops!
This con is dead! We need something to make it un-dead. Look behind me? Why? What's behind me?
