This year's will be my first Bouchercon, and I have a few novice questions you may be able to answer:
Is it okay to wear a backpack containing emergency food and drink as I attend panels and walk the floor? This is usually how I travel in New York City.
What's the proper attire for the Shamus Awards Banquet if I'm just a spectator? I have a black suit in a pinch. I'm semi-formal by nature, but I may need to buy a sportcoat.
I'll add questions to this post as I think of them. Feel free to comment with any advice.
