Prime Time Party

Lamenting that all of the parties at the 1999 Loscon had shut down by midnight, John Hertz, Becky Thomson and Tom Veal decided to do something about it. The following year, they founded the Prime Time Party, which opens at 1:00 a.m. Saturday night (or, to be technical, Sunday morning) and continues nominally until 7:00 a.m. (actually, until the room is empty, which is often later than seven). The event has become a minor Loscon tradition.
