First time at annual? Me too!

I've been happily anticipating my first ALA annual conference and trying to figure out how to best use my time while there to make sure I am exposed to the best in programs for children and teens.

I was pretty happy to discover that you can sort the conference offerings by unit.

Here is the ALSC sponsored schedule and the YALSA schedule.  I've heard tips on when or whether to hit publisher events (one says never, one says which ones are the most fun), information on shipping ARCS back home so you don't need to haul them, and where to eat. (Giordano's Pizza, Firecakes Donuts, and Lula Cafe if you're wondering.)

What are your tips for first timers?
