@kckolbe: The only humans there will be ghouls. Feed on them at your own peril. Also, there's not a lot of serving of refreshments going on, mainly since Kindred don't trust each other not to try to slip some of their own blood into the mix and begin the process of blood bonding everyone at Elysium.
@VonDoom: A cane/walking stick is fine as long as it can pass through a metal detector. They know about sword canes, which are fine to carry elsewhere, but won't be allowed in Elysium.
@RubySlippers: This isn't a mandatory Elysium for the Kindred. My saying that you were all going to be there was for the sake of sanity from a storytelling perspective and to get you all together to begin interacting with each other, your Primogen, the Harpies, etc.
