Tips for Attending Open Parties

If you want to do the Grand Tour, start at the top Party Floor and work your way down, for each tower -- this way you only have to wait for an elevator going UP twice. If you find a congenial one, stay for a while; there's no rule that says you have to party hop. On the other hand, if you join a group that seems to be congenially party hopping and tag along, it's a great way to make new friends and learn about the convention party scene.

If you want to pick and choose your parties, a listing will be available each day in the daily newsletter, and flyers will probably be plastered on the boards in the elevator lobbies. Peruse them and see if the mock-bid party for the Shadows' Worldcon (in 2258) piques your interest, or perhaps you might prefer a darker theme? One thing's certain, there'll be plenty to choose from.
