Page 22 - World Science Fiction Convention

I returned to the convention center for several hours in the evening, attending the Whiskey, Whisky, Bourbon and Rye panel, which include some tasting.

In the evening I spent a couple of hours catching up with friends in the SFWA suite before going to the Hilton for Friday night's parties. After making the round of other parties, I assisted at the Kansas City 2009 WorldCon Bid party until it was time for bed.

Those none SF fans that have stayed with this report this long deserve to see a Klingon at a party

Well, almost time. Leaving the Hilton Lobby I found more friends chatting and rolling yarn, and didn't get back to the Marriott for another 45 minutes. Something like this would happen every night when I tried to leave the Hilton.
