Eating. One of the basic needs of every living thing. And we’re pretty sure you’ve been doing it since birth. So why are we including it on our list of survival tips? Well, have you tried eating at a convention?
Here’s the first and most important thing: remember to eat. It may sound simple and obvious, but when you’re surrounded by things clamoring for your attention, it’s very easy to forget. And as tempting as it may be, you can’t eat con swag. Believe us, people have tried it and it’s not pretty.
There’s also the matter of where to eat. There’s always food at the convention center, but it can be costly. If you have a busy day of panel-going planned, try packing a lunch. Or if you have time for a break, take one. Look for food outside the convention center. Not only will the fresh air do you good, but you’ll get a chance to see some of the city. The cosplayers at McCormick Place may be great, but they’re not the only sight worth seeing in Chicago.
