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.
