Anybody work DNC or RNC 2008 or earlier ?
We've been contracted to do several events in September. This is by far the biggest thing to ever happen to our fair city. Anybody got any good stories? What to expect? I'm told if we have offsite event-all staff,deliveries, rentals, food, etc must be in by 6am, if you leave you cannot return. Even if the event starts at 8pm and goes till the wee hours of the am. I've gotta pay people to sit around ALL day. Where does that leave time to prep? Going to try to set up some satellite kitchens around the vicinity. Do all my degenerate ex-criminal staff have to pass background checks? If so I'll have to rely on (say it ain't so) culinary students.
I don't expect to sleep. Sleep is for the weak.
It's a ways off, but will be here before I know it.
Any sage wisdom, advice, observations or horror stories would be greatly appreciated.
