The Sunday night before my first VMworld I had nothing planned. I didn't know the area, and I wished there was something organized to do. Sunday night has always been about vendor dinners and vendor parties. As every small customer out there knows, not everyone makes the invite list. I was looking for a more open, community focused event to look forward to. A way to start talking with others about what they're doing with the technology and relax after a long day of travel.

 

So for the last two years, I've helped organize an alternative venue to meet up and do just that. (I guess those crazy kids call it a tweetup now) It's been great to meet other attendees, make new friends, drink a few pints, and see what people are looking forward to in the coming week.

 

Two years ago in San Francisco, we met at Johnny Foleys Irish House . Last year in Vegas it was at The Nine Fine Irishman. Same great idea, good turnout.

 

This year we're looking to break the mold. I've enlisted a crack team of party planners to help me get this under control.  We also have a fantastic group of vendor sponsors pitching in to put this over the top. Head over to our main page for all the details.

 

Same simple rule as last year:

 

Technology talk and networking with your peers is strongly encouraged, however if you're talking about a product you sell, you're buying drinks (sponsoring vendors excluded of course), We will hear no excuses (seriously, we've worked out a deal for you to work it off in the kitchen). Vendor engineers are excluded from this rule again this year as they tend to be extremely funny after a few pints, and can't help themselves.

 

Please add your contact information in this thread and write how cool the "VMworld 2009 Sunday Night Warm Up Extravaganza"  is going to be. And because we think dropbox (shameless link) is so awesome, if you submit your "statement of cool" in limerick form, you'll get two entries in the grand raffle instead of one.

 

Party Details and info can be found here: http://www.vmunderground.com

 

To much cool for one thread?  We think not.

This party is near the Moscone

The invite is plainly no phony

But if you see Ken Cline

With a bottle of wine

You'll be filled with a bunch of boloney

The Thristy Bear sounds like the place for me

Talkin' about technology on Sunday I see.

Night that is, I cannot wait!

Drinking beer and cabbing it to Moscone will be great!

 

See you there!

This should be a good time, I'll be there representing Veeam (a sponsor of course). Looks like the Thirsty Bear will be a popular place that week (wink, wink).

 

 

There once was a man from Nantucket...

(oh, never mind)
