Alcohol is My Friend

Perhaps that statement isn’t quite so true, but with all the activities during TechCrunch50, you wouldn’t really be able to tell the difference.

I have to admit I really need to start bringing my Canon Powershot (and beg for a Nikon SDR for Christmas – I’ve been really goood this year!).  The one above is taken via my iPhone early on during the Seesmic Anniversary Party (Happy Anniversary!!!) before it got too dark and crowded.

.

The Itinerary:

9/8 TC50 Day 1: completely oblivious that it actually started today.  Opted out of going to MySpace party, which I heard was a blast.

9/9 TC50 Day 2: drinks @ the Chi.mp/Mars Bar hang out by the conference center.  Totally chill and a nice way to ease into the craze.  Didn’t make it to Temple cuz, let’s admit it, I’m a granma and it’s a school night.

9/10 TC50 Day 3: get up at the crack ass and haul over to the Rubicon Project/Powerset Rehab party.  Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s at 8 a.m.?  Can you say “hollerrrr?”

I also picked up a nice ‘swag bag’ filled with Skyy vodka, Gatorade, dissolvable Tums (eww?), breakfast bars, t-shirts and a “I’ve completed the hangover course @ TCRehab” certificate.  My favorites are the RP and Powerset t-shirts.  Gotta love that soft cottoned American Apparel.

Jump to evening.  Seesmic party at 330Ritch.  (Seriously, I need to start wearing make-up.  So many random guys have flirted with me over the last few days.  Apparently, 5 mins of powder makes me a whole new person.)  Skip over to the bar, grab some salmon tartar and a dirty Grey Goose martini.  The food, except patte (ick), was delicious as was the company.

9/11Post TC50: McGriddles.

.

All in all, a fun few days.  Met some cool dudes et dudettes.  Learned that I need to 1) stop ducking away from cameras and 2) bring one.
