Wow...definitely looks like quite the party.

Almost like you'd expect people to be walking around handing out hits of LSD just like before an old Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd show in the 70's or 80's. :lol:

Realized I forgot to post these.

on Monday night (over a week ago already :(. . sheesh, where does the time fly), and i spotted these in the lobby of the Westin.

I posted on FB that "one knows the con is over when the underwear appears on the chair in the hotel lobby"

a very good friend, who knows that the Hotels remove furniture from the lobbies during Dragon*con (simply too many people milling about, and they need room for the bars they set up.. as well as they don't want people passing out on the furniture), corrected me with this gem:

"No, the sign that Con is over, is that the furniture reappeared. The Underwear indicates that someone doesn't realize yet that Con is over"

LOL

there is (apparently) surprisingly little drug use, at least visible drug use, even during all the late night parties, concerts and dances.
Seriously, one doesn't even smell pot out in the smoking areas.

now drinking on the other hand. . .


(yeah, the Hotels put out a LOT of extra freestanding bars all over every level and every ballroom)

Wow, this is awesome! Lots of great costumes here. Gotta give Polaroid Guy props for creativity. I have to admit to loving the mother and daughter both as Supergirl--we go to Comicon Kansas City every year and my kids absolutely love it. Great to see other families passing on the nerdom. Thanks for sharing!

It's a party con, but like Bert said there isn't any obvious drug use. I haven't seen anyone doing drugs, I haven't seen anyone that I thought was high and I haven't smelled weed. The raves are rather tame and nowhere near the stereotypical ecstasy filled raves. Drinking is the vice of choice and even that doesn't really get out of hand. People get really drunk, but I haven't seen any fights or anyone vomit. People are pretty respectful and follow the rules despite the craziness.

I will contribute some pictures if I can find the time.

LOL, thanks.

my Spouse calls me the "Musicpedia"

I have a LOT of music, and a pretty good memory for band details. . I like all kinds of music, except:

Pop music (anything boyband/Britney, etc). . and not a huge fan of Country, tho like some artists.

my sweet spots?

Glam Metal/Hair Metal (KISS, Motley, W.A.S.P., Dokken, Circus of Power, etc) & 80's/90's Industrial/electronic (basically anything on WaxTrax! or PlayitagainSam labels).

This solidifies it. I'm going next year. My mother still lives in Atlanta and I grew up there.
