One thing I would suggest to con newbies is to pack a lunch. Seriously. What they offer is either A: overpriced, or B: not really that close to being “food” to begin with. Usually, both. What worked nicely for me in Chicago, since I was coming form a hotel.. as to buy a lunch at the hotel cafe… came at a cheaper price, and MUCH tastier & better on my stomach.

Thus ends the comic con storyline. Now I get to prepare myself for the next comic con in June, Wizard World in Philly!
