CES week — where are the best parties?

OK, let’s be honest. Shows like CES are a work hard, play hard kind of gig.

I remember working Comdex for Winnov. We drove down. Hand-carried in all our equipment and booth. Believe it or not, you had to carry it in past the security guard. Union rules kept you from wheeling anything in. Our booth weighed 100 pounds. I had to carry that past the guard myself. The things I’ll do to save a multi-thousand-dollar lading fee.

Anyway, if you’re coming to CES, remember your comfortable shoes! You can walk 10 miles in a single day. Hey, it beats waiting in the two-hour taxi lines.

OK, to the point, we’re gonna work our butts off, so why not have fun in the evening?

Lora is setting up a Tablet PC and Geek/Blogger gathering on Friday evening.

Anyone know of any other things that are cool but open to the public?

Any other trouble we should get into in the evening? Just be warned, it might end up on my Flickr stream! Oh, wait, what happens in Las Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Yeah, right. Heheh.

  1. Wow, a bit dry for the Tablet crowd, eh? Pay own way, “End Users” and Cheeseburgers. Thanks goes to Lora, still tho they are always thrown together, at the last minute, meaning half will be off somewhere else, having committed to other things 6 months ago. Still tho, where would Tablet be without Lora? Not that Tablet is anywhere to begin with (nor will go anyplace), but it’d be far less without her.

    Gathering is the right term, as anything at CES that is ‘pay own way’ is not a party. ;)

  3. I’m just curious; if you have a server, hosted in Vegas, serving up Flickr images, does that violate the “happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” rule?

  5. Lots of what goes on in Vegas will end up on my Flickrstream.

    Ian Dixon of the Media Center Show podcast is putting together a party sponsored by Orb on Friday night as well.

  7. “where are the best parties”

    I’m surprised that people aren’t using a Jambo-like service to figure this one out.
