VentureBeat Celebration Party
The entire crew showed up for it, including Eric Eldon, who was wearing his great grandfather's blazer, which he apparently wears a few times a year for special occasions. I was so touched by the story, probably because I was so close to my own grandfather, knew my great grandmother and marvel at this token of family honor. He even wore a tie.
Here's 'nearly' the whole gang. I accidentally brought my portrait lens which did a terrible job performing well with The Ambassador's light and my dying battery. Brian Solis captured a shot from grinning ear to grinning ear, which will no doubt be posted to flickr by tomorrow morning.
MDV''s Katherine Barr
Craigs List Jim Buckmaster
That guy - Doug Dalton, who's the "guy" behind at least four San Francisco bars that we know about including Swig and Bourbon & Branch. I thought he looked a lot like Kevin Rose and then he tells me he knows Kevin. But of course he does - this is such a small city.
Renee Blodgett, former Red Herring COO Daniel Essindi, who is now founder & CEO of new travel site tripJane (currently in alpha)
Uwe Maurer, who apparently just turned the big 50.....congrats Uwe!!
A Dave McClure spotting
Alison Murdock who I haven't seen out and about in awhile :-) Great haircut.
Lisa Padilla, Renee Blodgett (taken by Brian Solis)
Dean Takahashi has the greatest smile
Lisa Padilla, Fred Davis
Sarah Lacy with her husband
Brian Solis and VentureWire's Tomio Green
Matt again (it is his party after all)
Daniel Essindi, Heddie Cundle
LA Times technology editor Chris Gaither
Kara Swisher and Mike Arrington also made an appearance but managed to dodge the cameras. At least mine.

Hm, unless someone has been trying to impersonate me, I wonder how my name (Adriana Cronin-Lukas) made it to this post?! I have been safely in London last night, although I wish I had been there. :)

Great gesture of respect and admiration that of Eric Eldon wearing things from her grandfather, the pictures are very funny!
