It's coming up in a few days, and I can't wait! It'll be my first time attending. I only have a regular admission ticket but I'm still figuring it'll be a great time.

What can I expect from the night, for those that have attended in the past? Are there ample samples to go around? I'm making a list of stuff I'd like to try but wonder if I'll have an opportunity to try them all, time permitting, or if lines get crazy and I should focus on a select few, and just take whatever else I can get? Are the seminars worth the time? I'm relatively new to the whisky scene so it'd be tough for any of them to NOT be informative, but I also don't really feel like sitting through a glorified sales pitch for a product.

Any tips you might be able to give would also be appreciated.
