I was thinking about buying a ticket to the banquet. Has anyone else gone before? Worth the dough?

Hi everyone. New forum member here and DragonCon first-timer!

My brother and I will be going to the Banquet. We're coming over from the UK especially for the Con and it seemed silly to go all that way and not experience as much as possible.

Hope it's worth it...

Isn't the banquet shown on D*CTV?  Or am I thinking the Masq?

I think the banquet is not, but the masq is.

It is in fact worth it. I believe you will enjoy it.

You just need to realize that the people ( mostly ) in this forum have been to DragonCon for many years. So a high price banquet meal where people congratulate each other is less important to us than meeting with friends we see only once or twice a year.

I certainly encourage you to go to the banquet. It should be a "must do" on a first timer's list.

I've been to Dragon Con for several years, and never been to the Banquet.  Over time and as the Con has grown, my interests and the things I do have changed but I've never had much interest in the Banquet.
