VMworld 2008 Sunday Night Warm up

If you're looking for the 2009 rendition of this party, head over here:  http://vmworld.com/thread/2995

 

 

 

 

Last year, the night before VMworld started, a bunch of folks from the vmtn boards linked up and had a few drinks at Johnny Foleys Irish House.  I got a chance to talk with some people, make some new friends, drink a few pints, and see what people were looking forward too in the coming week.  Now, I know that a bunch of you are going to be attending one, or maybe more vendor parties Sunday night.  Fantastic.  The rest of this message isn't for you lot.

 

The rest of you downtrodden, jet lagged souls are welcome to head down to the Nine Fine Irishmen.  It's going to be as informal as it gets.  If you're interested in talking about VMware, hop utilization rates, whatever, there will be a few of us attendees down there Sunday night around 7 PM.

 

To add to the festive atmosphere, everyone coming down needs to simply adhere to a simple agreement.  (added this year for entertainment value only)  If you start talking about a product that you a) own b) work for c) have financial interest in, or d) sell, you're buying the next round.  VMware engineers are excluded from this as they tend to be extremely funny prior to and after a few pints.

 

If you're planning on coming, please just reply in this thread so I have an idea of how many additional folks might show up.

 

Look forward to seeing you there.

 

-Theron

Sounds like a great idea. I'll be there and may be able to bring one or two more.

I plan on showing up, though probably a bit later.

 

 

Vendor parties?  None of my vendors sent an infite.  I feel slighted.  sniff

Re: Sunday Night Warm up

If time permits, I along with my co-worker will be there.  I was at VMworld in 2006 and was a little upset in the lack of ladies.  I know most guys only live in the geek world.  Seeing that it is in Vegas this year that will make up for it....

I will unfortunately be at a Vizioncore partner event, unless of course they discover that I'm secretly downloading Veeam Reporter for a test tomorrow.   If this is anything like last year, I'm sure it will not be my only opportunity to see Theron at this fine Irish Pub.    I bet guys name "Sean" are welcomed to establishments such as this, especially after they see my bar tab!

Re: Sunday Night Warm up

Sounds like a great plan.  And I like your version of the Drink-Drank-Drunk game where you have to buy the rounds.

Re: Sunday Night Warm up

How is everyone getting around?  Anyone riding the monorail?  I am at the Imperial Palace.  Normally, I'd be for walking, but if it's going to be 100 degrees, I don't think that would be too much fun.

I'm a maybe as I want to try the stratosphere, but seeing Mr. Chodur have a few could be entertaining.
