Even though the days are pretty long, and there’s a lot of sessions squeezed in and new information to absorb, there’s still some time to see a bit of LA.
Last night we made it to the rooftop of The Standard, where there was a Halloween party going on. Great place, great mood, great view, great drinks. I didn’t bring my camera, therefore all you get is a blurry mobile photo. Lots of funky costumes and I have to say that the view of the skyscrapers of downtown LA was really stunning.
Though, being geeks, we ended up talking a bit about Azure, Silverlight and stuff like that...
The night before we went to the attendee party at Universal Studios, where they also had a Halloween-thing going on. Even though I’ve been to Universal Studios a couple of time (it’s the standard attendee party venue at TechEd and PDC) the Halloween stuff made it more fun than I expected.
They had a special Halloween show, “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure”, and since I expected it to be rather stupid it ended up being quite entertaining. Definitely aimed at a mature audience, and it poked a lot of fun at celebrities and movie characters. Highlights included Sarah Palin showing her best side (pictured on the right) and Indiana Jones saying “Skanks. Why does it always have to be skanks?” in reference to the girls from Sex in the City entering the stage.
