...an unattended barrel full of BreakKeys...
The technical term for that is a "GARBAGE CAN"...

Clearly your experience(s) with BreakKey did not have the required amount of alcohol involved to truly enjoy the game.

I don't think I could ever comsume that much alcohol... :blink

The wait staff at one restaurant almost cried when we left a table covered in broken break-keys. 

So.... taking my wife was a bad idea, huh?

/not the one that suggested going there.

 :P
Only if you were planning on attention from the waitresses. 
I find it interesting that you used the cunnilingus smiley.

A thing I like to in Indie, although not technically Gencon related:

There's a restaurant around the corner from the Omni called the Red-Eye Cafe.  Food is pretty decent, they have a pretty decently stocked bar, and they're open 24/7.  If it's 3am, and you're in the mood for some waffles and a tall Blue Moon, that's the place to go.

Also an Indie fave (for me anyway).  The RAM brewery.  I technically didn't discover it, but they brew their own beer on-site, and it's pretty good stuff too.  Get a growler of whatever strikes your fancy, they have a pretty good variety, and the growler makes a nice souvenir. 

Bring enough liquor to last the weekend.  I ran out halfway through the con last year, and decided to walk to the nearest liquor store.  Problem is, you have to pass through a rougher part of town than most of the hotels and restaurants are located, and I ended up getting chased by a street person yelling gibberish at me.  Makes an interesting story, but I found the experience unpleasant.  Also, the guy at the liquor store is an ass and gave me hell about everything from my credit card to my ID to my signature.
