DrupalCon Chicago, Part II

Wednesday at DrupalCon was another full day of learning, and I attended extremely diverse classes from styling maps to talking about internet marketing. I had a few “ah ha!” moments, which are always a treat at these events.

Okay, that’s it for the actual DrupalCon photos in this post; the highlight of Wednesday was the Lullabot party in the evening! Trevor and I headed to the Underground, along with our new friend from Puerto Rico, Yazan. The night started with a “Geek to Chic” fashion show, where many of the “Drupal rockstars” donned top of the line nerd attire and strutted in front of us as we cheered on. I was almost in pain by the end from laughing so much!

This was intense!

Luckily it was videotaped, and I happen to be opposite the action taking photos :)

Having webchick in crazy tall heels was probably the funniest part :)

We finally ran into Gord and Anne from NorthStudio (based in Victoria). I hadn’t seen them since DrupalCamp Alberta a few months ago, so it was great to be reunited and enjoy the dance party together!

The party finished off with Jeff Robbin’s (Lullabot) band Orbit, who were insanely good. Listen!

When I had had enough of the loud music, I followed Jacob and a few others to the karaoke party at Murasake, and was amazed by how many Druplers know how to belt out a tune.

These guys, whose names I never caught, did a number of classic karaoke duets including, “You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling” and “Don’t Stop Believing.”

It was here I met Jeff, and although he lives in Vancouver now, he used to live in Calgary and even spent time working in Brocket when he was younger. What a small world! It’s like us Canadians have homing devices built in.
