Before I left I also said hi to Win Bassett from All About Beer Magazine and the NC Brewers Guild who, like BrewDad, I also met at the Beer Bloggers Conference. It was a loud and dark room and it'd been several months since he last saw me so I'm not sure if he recognized me right away. That's why I always greet casual acquaintances by first saying my name and where it was we met. If I'm wearing a hat, I take that off, too. This strategy helps make the conversation progress less awkwardly; the other person doesn't have to pretend they remember you.
