Can you bring a back pack of food/water with you?  I know some places frown upon that.

I can't think of any reason that would be a problem.

I think the most important statement in that guide is........ "Seriously, pace yourself".

Take it from me, I can tell you that waking up feeling like your head in a vise is not fun.  >:(

That being said...Can't wait until next week.  :)

Is water readily available or do you just suggest drinking the water when you rinse your glass?

Just printed my boarding passes...can't wait for this day to be over.

There are water dispensers all over the place.  We encourage people to stay hydrated with something besides the beer.

So..... I understand there is no food included? A bunch of people drinking beer all day long on empty stomachs sounds like a highschool kegger.

There will of course be food at the banquet if you bought the whole package.  There is food in the hotel and in the nearby area around the hotel.  You're responsible for feeding yourself.  And nobody's forcing you to drink beer all day long...take a break.  Last yuear, I never drank more than a total of 4 pints in a day and I still got to try dozens of beers.

So what are some of the places around the Hotel people can go for good beer, some food, and more good beer?

I know there's a Rock Bottom and The Tap House Grill nearby, but maybe some locals can give a couple other suggestions.

Thanks.

There's an app for iPhone and iPad called "Around Me" that lists restaurants and other places near wherever you are.  It's worked great for me, and I'm hoping that trend will continue in Bellevue.

Taken from the "Attire" section of the NHC Newbie guide...
Can I wear a kilt?
No, kilts may not be worn. People don’t wear kilts, kilts wear people. If your kilt would like to wear you to the conference, great. There will be many kilts wearing people there, probably a kaftan and a moo-moo, too.

Is this good news or bad news for The Weaze?
Thank you BEER!
