If you're heading to PaizoCon, I very much recommend any third-party publisher go to this seminar. We'll be covering a lot of the nitty-gritty stuff about the Pathfinder Compatibility License from me, small business accounting tips from Ashley, and veteran tips from Owen.

It very much depends on the dietary restrictions you're concerned about. I have found most restaurants in the Seattle area much more aware of celiac and vegetarian options than in other parts of the country.

There's also now a one-day badge so you can hit up your top priority panels and get all the autographs possible (Paizo folks can help you track down key people you're looking for) for a smaller time and $$ investment.
Did we all get tracking chips and I...forgot?
Wait. ...What *was* in the Goblin Fire Red wine?
Plenty of things are defined as Open Game Content (OGC), and can be shared as long as they follow the terms of the Open Gaming License (and by extension, the Pathfinder Compatibility License).
However, there is material that is not OGC in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game books that you will not find on those sites: our artwork, and many of the prose and advice text (the GameMastery Guide is a good example of this). Our world setting is also product identity, and except through the use of the Community Use Policy, is closed for such sites as d20pfsrd.com and the Pathfinder Reference Document.
If you want mechanics, then the freely available sites are there for that purpose. If you want world setting, adventures, and award-winning artwork, please check out the rest of the Pathfinder gaming materials available. (Of course we would love it you bought as much of our materials as your budget allows, because we like roofs over our heads and food on the table.)
Alayern, if there are specific things that we do not address in our Event Policy that you would like to talk about, please email email@example.com—we'd be happy to discuss it.
As one of the organizers of the very first unofficial PaizoCon, along with Tim Nightengale, I am very much invested in making sure that everyone has a safe and fun convention that captures the convivial nature of that first gathering and is respectful of all attendees, no matter their background, no matter where they are from, no matter their skill level and familiarity with games. I want to sit down at a table and roll the dice with new folks, and I want people coming to PaizoCon to be able to do so as well in a safe space. Our guidelines at the show will be the same ones that guide our interactions on the forums, and we expect our attendees to follow them.
