I ahve arrived at the Marriott and actually have to work (I get to party on Saturday night). I bumped into a few good souls I know in the lobby and there were numerous conversations occurring! One or two folks asked what to do tonight. To me – the answer is very simple. Walk a few blocks east into Bell Town and explore this funky neighborhood and have fun. But don’t have too much fun as the keynote address starts at 8AM from Intel (doors open fro breakfast at 7:00AM).
PS – need to find someone to have fun with? Then introduce yourself to someone in the lobby of the hotel and then go out.
PPS – if you are staying at the Ramada – you would actually walk a few blocks WEST into Bell Town.
