I agree the venue is a big downer- I'm not a big fan of the Palmer House- too cramped and old for the kind of space that you need to run an even like this.
I haven't been to Sox Fest yet- and the wife and I are going to stay away from big trips next year- so I could rationalize/justify going- but a full weekend in the Palmer House? No thanks-
