Jen from Transworld has spoken to the bar personnel at the Renaissance Hotel and it is going to be the meeting place for lots of haunters. You will get a discount on drinks with your Haunt show badge.

I'll say it again, beer trick or treating door to door in the hotel will benefit all- and isn't it just easier to talk to someone when you randomly knock on their hotel room door? all you have to say is 'trick or treat' and just go from there.

I think '21 and over Hotel Trick or Treating' will be a fun way to meet people and just have a game in general, so here's how everyone can participate:

1.Put something on your door haunt related: I plan on a Halloween Pez dispenser hanging from the door knob (In case we're not there grab some pez!) but a poster or bloody hand will do- I know everyone's creative.

2. Knock and say 'trick or treat', don't keep knocking someone might be busy!

3. Don't knock on doors without anything since someone's either sleeping or not a haunter and we don't want to annoy anyone.

4. Any alcohol will do (though we are in Budweiser country.) I'm not picky. 18 & 24 can packs would probably be easiest. If I can find it though we'll be having Stella

5. Trick or Treating hours are all time, any time- I might be restless in between seminars and start prowling around.

I'm sure all of these are pretty obvious but why not air it out there for everyone just in case right?

I know we're staying at the Renaissance but if anyone at other hotels feels like doing this- let us know! I'll travel for a beer and conversation.
This is my first convention so I'm stoked to the max, can't wait to see ya'll there!

Jen was hoping to get a better discount, but she just couldn't do any better.
But she tried.
She also told me that the Hotel has an atrium just like the crowne did in Chicago so it might be easy enough to hang out just outside the bar and get drinks and come out into the atrium for more socializing.
I can't guarantee you will be able to have your coolers in the atrium like you could in Chicago but it may be possible.

But the bar setup is looking promising.
I also spoke with her and she said she will be posting signs all over the convention and seminar areas to make sure everyone knows where the afterhour hang out is.

It looks like everything is coming together.
And she said that the buyer registration is up to 4000 for the Haunt show.

We look forward to seeing everyone there next week

Don, I think this is a cool idea and once I get a buzz on I'm going to go and hang halloween things on all the doors and then sit back and and watch the fireworks.lol.....Just kidding or am I?

Trick or treat sounds like a good idea until you are the ones sitting in your room waiting for people to come. Naw, I think it won't work. I am not sitting in my room.

I just thought this up and am not sure if it would be cool or not. How about encouraging everyone to bring a bag of candy or other goodies and we do trick or treating at the bar on Fri or Sat night. We could use that as an ice breaker or way to encourage people to meet eachother. From like 10-11 or so, people are encouraged to mingle and walk up and get candy or other treats? Stupid?

That's the mischievous halloween spirit I was looking for! I was planning to put up craigslist postings for erotic encounters on any rooms I saw with something on the doors...haha just kidding or am I?

dont be a naysayer- odds are no one's going to be around much with the darkness, columbia haunt tours, and obviously experiencing the other night life of St Louis,(oh wait the convention as well) but that's no reason not to be prepared just in case right? Come'on how hard is it to have a 24pack sitting around just in case that one hour of downtime someone decides to go prowling around? Just one more way to open up the possibility of meeting like minded people. If nothing else you have something for the ride back home!

Don - you have a GREAT icebreaker there! I'm up for passing out candy inexchange for a "who the hell are you"

Dirk, it seems like a little too 1st-grade-ish kinda thing, but in a good way!

I like it. It would really help to break the ice. We should really try to get something going like this.

Just seems that the trick or treating door to door will not work out. Many times at these shows, people hang out mostly with people they know... anyway, I was just throwing it out there

if you dress up it be even better, you'd get a 'what the hell are you?'

Dirk I challenge you to either find your way to my room (the one with the pez) or at the bar sometime(We should be pretty easy to find- Blood Lake shirts and vacant looks on our faces.) I will make you a believer in the power of beer giving/trick or treating.

~You have been officially challenged.~

Katie I only do pez but I will gladly trade for some candy that I can then off on other people. Oh yeah you can have a beer as well due to enthusiasm.

Well, since we're rooming together Nick... I put you in charge of answering the door at 4 in the morning.

And speak for yourself with the vacant look... I'll be the wide-eyed person jumping up and down like a kid at Christmas the entire weekend. Maybe I'll bring my Santa hat?

Is there some kind of haunt convention initiation for first-timers?

8 days!!!

Ryan, that knock at 4am is the Big Al- the trucker whom I arranged for you to meet. I'll just go wait downstairs while you two get acquainted...

And yeah you're like a kid at Christmas, you're skimming days off our actual departure time like whoa! Im just as excited, but just so we're clear- I'm calling shotgun from the start with reservations on all other seating. Challenge me and I'll start playing my playlist from hell- the most obnoxious children's song's I've ever found...see if I'm bluffing (http://www.amazon.com/gp/recsradio/radio/B0007CKH6I/ref=pd_krex_listen_dp_img?ie=UTF8&refTagSuffix=dp_img)

:) of course if I want to be obnoxious I can just open my mouth.
