I’m pleased to be able to announce that SQL Karaoke night (Wednesday night at Bush Garden in the International District) has a sponsor again this year. The fine people over at Idera Software have agreed to sponsor the evenings activities this year. The sponsorship for this year will be very similar to last years. Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend the insane SQL Karaoke night at Bush Garden (614 Maynard Ave. South Seattle, WA).
However in order to get the free drinks you’ll need to go and see the fine folks at the Idera booth during the day while the exhibit hall is open. At the Idera booth you’ll be able to pick up a wristband which is good for one night, and one night only. After that the only thing you need to do is have some dinner and at about 9:30pm Wednesday night head over to Bush Garden. Wristbands are given out first come, first served using what ever criteria the fine folks at the Idera booth come up with.
Bush Garden is about a 30 minute walk (I’d recommend walking in a group if you want to walk) from the convention center. From the convention center walk down Pike (towards the water) and turn right on 6th. Walk for about a mile then turn right on Jackson, then left on Maynard. It’s about 2 1/2 blocks down on the left.
Unfortunately Bush Garden isn’t in the best of neighborhoods so do use caution.
Personally I recommend a taxi as I’m lazy and it’s a long walk. A cab should cost you about $5 or so to get there from the convention center and/or hotel.
If you are looking for a great way to unwind and watch some people do some great singing (and some others make total fools of themselves) this is THE party to go to. It’s also a great place to meet some of the MVPs as well as some of the folks from the product group. If you aren’t sure what you are getting in for by attending, don’t forget to check out the website.
The wristbands to come with a budget attached, so drinks will be first come first served. As always please don’t go overboard with drinking.
See you at Bush Garden,
