The opening ceremony was good, and I have video which I'll post later after I can pull it off of the camcorder. The taco bar was surprisingly good - much better than I was expecting.
Unfortunately after I got up to the party floor, my knee started to give out on me and I had to come to the room and take some painkillers. That plus the near lack of sleep from last night finished me off, and so now I'm going to bed. I'm looking forward to a lot of really great panels tomorrow!
