I've been going to ESC every year since 2007 using a Cheapskate Pass. I'm quasi-local, so I usually only do a single day. This year ESC day is Wednesday so I can hear Bunnie Huang and smell Max's bacon-and-beer session.
One of the advantages of the Cheapskate Pass is that figuring out what sessions to attend is pretty quick. But this year they're giving me a one-class pass! Now I have to look through all those other sessions. Riches beyond the wildest dreams of avarice!
