CEC: Party (and beyond)

The party was interesting, the space was nearly big enough but the ability to move was constrained by the shape of the spaces.

A party in three parts:


The pool: Big hit, weather was really nice. Women dancing on platforms on the pool, RC boats running around the pool, piles of CEC attendees standing around the pool, live band. Long lines.

Inside, downstairs: Eh, dark, loud. Everyone was packing the pool side so lines inside (particularly upstairs) were non-existent when I was there. Easy access to taquitos wasn't especially engaging. We also had a briefly interesting but overall uninspiring Kill Bill interpretive dance also some disappointing fire play (I am spoiled).

Fire PlayIt is a tech conf after all

Little Buddha: Apparently there was sushi, I got a couple of pieces from the on the run guy, he would barely slow down to let you get anything. Couldn't find any of the carry out type boxes with food in them, no idea what they were. Dessert was tasty but I am not sure how the baklava relates to the sushi theme. Really tasty whipped peanut butter tart things (if you like peanut butter). I took one picture it wasn't so good.

The final I am sometimes a negative person verdict: music was to loud (always is) forgot my earplugs, party wasn't bad but it was somewhat hard to navigate. Got some good pictures of the dancing (sure to be a hit based on the long term ogling around the pool).

Ogling, take a picture it lasts longer :)A view from the upper deck
