High light: Running into and catching up with old college buddies, professional colleagues, and spending time with one of my best buddies.
Low light: Not spending more time with the various groups that came down on Saturday.
Best experience: Dinner at a small cantina followed by three hours of nostalgia courtesy of Galloping Ghost arcade.
Worst experience: Having to walk even farther to get non-ballpark priced food options.
Best bargain (had to buy it, no freebies): The 5 for $25 Marvel booth was out of stock finally. But the "double feature" DVD of Cast A Deadly Spell and Witch Hunt for $10 was worth it.
Best freebie: Not much in the way of freebies this year, though I will always welcome a free tote bag.
Best Photo Op: Best bet for getting pictures was out front of the exhibition hall.
Most welcome surprise: Running out of cards both days of the show. Here's hoping something comes of it.
Most unwelcome surprise: No DC booth. You'd think they would be pushing the hell out of Man of Steel.
Best costume: Though I didn;t see him directly, the 9 foot tall Jack Skellington on stilts was awesome.
Best costume try: There was a Hit Girl that was maybe 5 that was adorable and murderous.
Most amusing costume: A lot of good mashups this year. Too close to call.
Coolest booth: The collective, because my old college buddy aaron Hoffman was working it!
Strangest moment: Watching two guys in suits from the banker's convention wander into the hall.
Favorite item available in the Exhibit Hall: The Oregon Trail/zombie mashup.
