staying Sunday night worse... or better?
Posted 15 August 2011 - 12:14 PM
I was wondering, has anyone ever stayed Sunday night? Was it a good experience, or was it too depressing for words trying to outlast the exodus of ACen goers?

Staying Sunday Night is a great experience depending on who you are with and what you guys have. Plus there is no rush of packing everything and hoping that you didn't forget anything while trying to get out the door before 12pm.

Thursday night is better in my personal opinion as there seems to be more people either coming out of town or just excited to start ACen that lots of pre-ACen activities begin. Plenty of Meet-N-Greets, Midnight Showings of whatever movie is coming out (this year it was Pirates, no idea next year, Batman?), and just all sorts of "let's get this party started" mentality. I went Thursday for the first time in my 8 ACen spree and I'll have to say it's going to be a welcome change in my future convention attending ways.

Personally, thus far, I've never stayed at any con Sunday night - the furthest I've driven for a con is about 3.5 hours, give or take, and I always manage to get home sometime that night. For ACen, I live less than an hour from Rosemont, so I've never had a reason to stay the night. ^^

Also did I mention that you could meet any con guest that linger behind on Sunday without IRT security? Thats how I got to take pictures with High and Mighty Color a few years back since IRT and the record studio said no pictures at the con.

I've used my vacation time to visit other cities, attend cons, and do sightseeing both before and after events. The most recent time I did that was Seattle in 2010... I didn't enjoy Penny Arcade Expo very much (imagine a weekend surrounded by /v/ trolls), but getting to see the city was a great experience. Just make sure you can afford your hotel(s); and if you need public transportation, make sure the hotel is close.
