Thursday was a day of traveling and settling into Denver.
“Twas the night before #alamw18” sounds like the perfect beginning to an old fable.

Packing is one of the biggest hurdles.
Would someone PLEASE make me go pack??? #alamw18

And you realize another hurdle might be the snowstorm hitting the Midwest.
TFW all your coworkers are snowed in in Chicago so you might have to set up and run the #alamw18 booth (#1115) yourself but then maybe one coworker managed to get out to help? pic.twitter.com/hZxdh6MGTu

But once you arrive to your hotel, you begin to realize you’re really at #alamw18.
After you’re all settled, make sure to network and buy your colleagues a drink if possible.
And by drink, we mean this type of drinking.
And when you’re not staying hydrated, it’s good to find the hidden food nooks around the convention center.
#alamw18 hack: 5280 Burger has an ice cream shop attached to it. It’s delicious and you can get a generous single scoop for $1.95 plus tax.

And on your way to the convention center tomorrow, make sure you play the classic game of “Librarian or local?”
OMG everyone in Denver looks like a librarian. This is worse than Seattle. #alamw18

To #alaleftbehind folks, stay up to date by following the #alamw18 hashtag and American Libraries!
I’m feeling #alamw18 left behind and it hasn’t even started yet.

And let us not forget #ALApetsleftbehind! (Sorry to all ALA staff pets who will be upset that we’re not at home.)
So, what cats (and doggos and birds and…) are YOU leaving behind to go to #alamw18? And will they forgive you?
