For a few years, the restaurant list had omitted the nearby Denny's restaurant for good reason -- many reports of horrible service had been reported. As of February 2014, the Denny's in question no longer exists.

Note: These financials provide just a brief overview, and should be considered in context. Each convention has its own situation, which may change from year to year. Special events (like art shows) that are part of a charity's mission are usually run at a loss. Conventions typically have many other expenses which may come to far more than those listed.
