Party People In The House

Cotton mouth and dry eyes got you down today? Then thanks for coming to Downing Street Pub last night for my Sip n' Surf event.

The crowd started to arrive right at 5pm so congrats to them for getting a close parking space. We never had to call the fire marshall but elbow room was at a premiuim. Close to 400 guests streamed in and out. Saw a few people banging keys on their laptops but this was more of a social/cocktail gathering. The Woodford Reserve bourbon mixed with lemonade was a big hit.

Brought along some new gadgets like the Nike + iPod running shoes and Motorola Q. I saw lots of oooohs and aaaahs over the Sony wireless TV and the new HP Tablet PC. Can't tell you some of things people were writing and drawing on the tablet screen but lets just say they were very creative.

Saw a lot of familiar faces in the crowd like Oliver Luck, Wes Hohenstein, Robert Dale Morgan and the Hot On Houston TV crew. A shout out to Fox 26 intrepid reporter/blogger Isiah Carey for snapping pics and "covering" the party.

I'll probably do another event in the fall so keep the A/C on until then.
