So for those with the past experience, can you recommend a good time and place to have a Forum "Meet and Greet"? (not hook up)

How's that Jimmy?   :)

Crispy has the good advice - stay hydrated. Drink water often. There are usually the big coolers of water around, so use them. The B vitamins in a drink like Propel before bed gets you more water and the vitamins and minerals to help your body recover before you get up and do it all over the next day. One must be aware that it will not fix a day and night of stupidity!

Take time to eat right, don't get so caught up that you forget to have a good meal.

Pace your self. It can be a long conference, so be there at the finish.

Directly accross from the hotel is Reading Terminal market with tons of food vendors. Could always meet there (or meet in the hotel lobby and walk there). There are places to sit, but finding room might depend on how busy it is. And in such a huge place we have the risk of heading cats.

Reading Terminal Market is always fun. Great food and a nice price. :)

I will be there for my first NHC with my wife.  We were hoping to bring more of the Trainwreck Brewers from Danville, VA, but nobody else could make it.
In Kegs: Belgian Dubbel with Amarillo and Citra IPA
In Fermenter:  Citra and Galaxy IPA
Up next:  Pumpkin Ales from Zymurgy

I went to:
Denver          1994
Baltimore       1995
New Orleans   1996
Cleveland       1997
Chicago         2003

Didn't pace myself - got burned out - still recovering...   :o

You going to be at the conference?  It would be great to meet in person after all these years online.

I really like the Reading Terminal Market, but it has no space to get more than a few people together in any one spot.  I suggest we pick up some food from there and meet in the hospitality suite on Thursday after the seminars and before Pro Night.
