La Fonda on Main (great patio)
The bar at any of the Marriots...usually run into people on their way to something.
The bar at the Grand Hyatt gets pretty busy.
The Original Mexican on the river has pretty good margaritas. Not sure about the food
Yard House for the beer choices and convenience
Look forward to seeing old friends and some of the concerts.
Dread the crowds.
Advice....check who is sponsoring the clinic. Many times its a commercial for a product. Unless you are interested in that product going in, it's usually a waste of time.
I am not afraid of walking out of a clinic. If I'm not learning something, I can find a better use of my time and might be able to find something better.
Also, check the app for handouts ahead of time. It will save you some time if you can determine you don't want to go to that ahead of time.
