We made this amazing sign with the magnetic LEDs that @thinkgeek sent us

We are overwhelmed at the wonderful response to #endlessBBQ v2.0 and thrilled that so many of you were able to make it. We had a great time, and from the sound of things, most of you did too. Our best guess at how many were in attendance was around 250. That is based on us going through 160 name badges, 25-30 improvised name badges when those ran out, 36 staff and sponsor badges, and dozens more with no name badges at all after we ran out of the improvised ones.

Even with that many people, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, despite the heat and evil mosquitoes. Not surprisingly, the local sheriffs made an appearance once, but it was only due to cars parked on both sides of the street. Once they were moved to our auxiliary parking lot, everything was fine. There was great food, amazing live music, a wonderful DJ, swimming, #endlessBBQ and space swag giveaways, and more. What made the event truly epic was the people who were there. Everyone was friendly, cooperative, and just downright pleasant. Special thanks to our staff who really worked hard at cooking, cleaning, serving, shopping, setting up, DJing, performing, supplying and setting up equipment for streaming video, and more. We also want to thank those of you who brought swag to give away, created glittery shuttle body art for guests, lugged heavy camera gear and took amazing photos and videos, brought a huge telescope, built an impromptu microphone stand with a tiki torch, fan, and duct tape, and so on. You all rock.


One Comment on “Success!”

  1. It was, at least so far!, the party of the year, probably one of the best I’ve ever been to. Thanks to everybody who worked so hard and especially Jen(@flyingjenny) and Chris (@herrea) but I know there were dozens. I left at 2:30 am and @herrea said in a twitter post the last folks left about 5am! And that was just the first night 🙂 I left at 3:30 the SECOND night!
