If you've got a hotel reservation with the Hilton/Marriott Downtown (the Doubletree, I think?) you may want to check it.

It's the one at 160 Spring Street, whatever it's called now.  The name and ownership changed a few months ago.  I just called to confirm my reservation and the confirmation number I was given when I reserved last October was not the same as what they had in the system tonight.

Got it sorted out, but if it wasn't, it would have been a problem!

We accidentally trolled a wedding reception though.  >.>

For some reason it was being held at Hard Rock Cafe.  The bride was apparently mostly stunned..  The guests were having a great time though.  You can see a guest over on the right ... my handler/cameracat was busy dealing with the crowd at the street corner and didn't get a good pic of the rest of the wedding crowd, so this one is of a pedestrian and some of us.

I'm going to venture a guess the authorities present didn't mind.

Also, cupcakes.

Then we went across to the food court.  On the way, lots of office people were getting our picture from their business.  Other conventions present were the Future Business Leaders of America (teenagers in sport coats and ties) and some sort of wholesale home decor convention.  We had two very very good handlers (or maybe three, it was hard to see) helping keep us safe and not in anybody's way.

Same scene, opposite angle.

This started off as just three of us, all friends pre-con, going outside to get some pics.  We were originally going to go to Olympic park, but decided not to due to the drunken crowd for St. Pat's.  By the time we got everybody together in the headless lounge and dressed, it had grown to this group.
