Well, it's true that the bar is a rather popular social gathering place, yes. But no, you don't have to be lonely. You can still be with your friends, and order some stuff that does NOT contain alcohol :) The bar has a very large selection of non-alcoholic drinks. And if you'd rather not drink anything at all ... the won't throw you out because of that :)

How lonely you will be depends on how social you are, what interests you have, with what kind of people you'd like to hang out with (and you are able to find them)

I've been to every EF (and MMC) since 2002, and I've never been lonely because of not drinking a single drop of alcohol. Honestly, the furs I hang out with don't even care. Sure, they are not the type of furs who just spend the night in front of the bar and get drunk, making crazy jokes and stuff. If you'd like to be around THESE kind of folks, well, being sobre can be a quick turn-off :)

Being someone who is usually quite reserved about alcohol, in my experience it hasn't been an issue. :)
So indeed, I think on account of that you don't have to be lonely.

someone who drinks  "way too much(tm)"  is going to be very lonely
first alone in his room/bathroom
second the next morning at home

so feel free not to get drunk and have nice conversations with new friends :-)

Alkohol ist dein Sanitäter in der Not
Alkohol ist dein Fallschirm und dein Rettungsboot
Alkohol ist das Drahtseil auf dem du stehst

I don't drink at all... and I prefer cons with a low alcohol-per-person ratio. Here are the 7 reasons why:

1. The conversations make more sense, content-wise
2. The language people talk in is understandable, pronounciation-wise
3. You don't miss the con passed out in a bathroom corner
4. You won't wake up in the morning married to a sheep
5. You may find less "friends" but you will actually remember them afterwards
6. You will actually benefit from attending the panels and SIGs. Intellectual capacity be praised!
7. Your reputation will remain unscathed, especially if you're on a con for the first time and make a first impression on many, many people
7. There will be no sinister wolf on your tail threatening to push you into a cold shower to sober up
7. You don't need to pay extra for cleaning services
7. You will retain your ability to count.

Limiting the amount one imbibes on a con is an excellent idea!
