LISA05 Thursday: Reception(s)

Thursday evening was a series of sponsored events. The LISA reception was a combination of dinner, desserts, drinks, and a miniature casino floor:

A fascinating part of the reception was the balloon assemblies produced by the man pictured; here he's making a birthday cake hat:

People lucky enough to receive wings, a palm tree hat (complete with balloon monkey), and the like were good enough to wear them around the ballroom so that we might all see what objects can be constructed from inflated rubber.

After the reception, Sara hosted an OpenSolaris hospitality suite, which came furnished with a very generously pouring bartender. The crowd was pretty good:

As the crowd thinned out, I noticed that a complimentary laptop servicing was being handled by a group of engineers:

Ultimately, the laptop was restored and the evening ended happily.

That man that made balloons at this event is the great Don Caldwell, one of the most amazing entertainers I know. I dream of the day I can have him flown out to an event for me.
