This event wins the award for longest I've ever had to wait in line. There was a promise of free Mike's Hard Lemonade which must've caused us all to revert to our teenage girl selves. There were also tons of professional cameramen roving around documenting an entirely uninteresting mingling of people drinking free lemonade.

Food: Cookies and Dominos Pizza
I showed up late and the food was being guarded by a serious looking woman who clearly wanted us to pay attention to the speaker and not the boxes of Domino's pizza. I tried my best to absorb the talk about filing patents but my mind was elsewhere. Luckily, the woman eventually got distracted by a VR headset so I snuck out the side for a pizza rendezvous and assorted cookies.
