Our party might have featured more balloons than that movie Up did. And ours were real.
P.S. Some of these photos are N-particularly-SFW, or young children. Blame photographer Dan Sandoval, and don't say we didn't warn you.
Solidaz played '80s rock riffs throughout the night.
Some people hear "80s party" and immediately ponder, "Which of the five outfits already in my closet should I wear?"
Other people just put on a wig, and they're good to go. Or is that a wig?
This looks more '70s. Let's file it under early '80s.
It's not what you think it is, we don't think.
We couldn't figure out what the connection was between this belly dance and the '80s. But, whatever, it looked good.
We frankly have no idea who these people are and deny any responsibility for their actions in the lobby of the Shangri-la Hotel.
The "g" has left the building.
We had to step out from behind our computers and onto the stage for a traumatic two minutes of mumbling our way through thanks yous.
For those who couldn't hear us, here it is loud and clear: We'd like to thank all of the people who attended and made the party the revelry that it was PLUS: our contributors; Rik and Angela and all the Mooney's staff; and the Solidaz band for keeping the party going well past our bedtimes.
