I did it too, but it wasn’t a pleasant walk carrying 3 jugs of water and a bag of necessities.

I try not to do major shopping while on vacation.  Most of it is limited to a few snacks.  So, my need for a store is not a great as yours.  I just needed some toiletries--ones provided by our hotel for free but were not available because of the hour of the morning I needed to be ready by.

I stayed at the Manchester Grand Hyatt this year for the first time thanks to a fellow FOCC and I also made that round trip walk from Ralph's to the hotel.   The round trip includes a case of 32 bottles of water and other groceries.   But it wasn't bad because I didn't carry that case of water.   I brought with me to Ralph's my empty carry-on suitcase. I loaded that case of water bottles and whatever else could fit into my carry-on and just rolled it back to the hotel room.   I didn't notice any weird looks from anyone, not that it would bother me if anyone did.

Thanks for the tip -- this is a great idea. I'll try that next time. I wouldn't mind weird looks for carrying a suitcase either.

I was looking forward to since I had read reviews as recently as a month ago saying appetizers were half off during Happy Hour, and some of them looked really good. But when I got there they told me they cancelled their Happy Hour. They said that it wasn't necessarily due to SDCC, they are just changing some things around. Oh well.

Yeah I spent 35 bucks on a burger with fries and a beer but it was really good!

Nah, it looked expensive.   I just took advantage of the MGH's offering of their popup snack stand next to the hotel registration desk.  I'd pick up a hot dog and pizza for lunch and take about an hour break from the con.  At the same time I get to charge my phone.
