Hey! I have started researching parties and user groups (khronos is the main one I have found so far http://www.khronos.org/news/events/siggraph-los-angeles-2012) I wonder if anyone else has found anything? I am tracking this years parties in the league of SIGGRAPH parties (http://www.facebook.com/groups/leagueparty/)

Hopefully Blurr and Autodesk will have another event, the last one was pretty amazing!

Well, first of all there's the Sake Barrel Opening Party on Monday.

I'm surprised Paul, Roberto or on of the other regulars haven't organized the unofficial CGTalk party. In LA we usually have it on the Westin Bonaventure, sometimes on Sunday. Although now with LA Live we have more options.

Hey there,

That was next on my list. I usually allow an LA local throw some suggestions in, but I am happy to keep the Bonaventura Brewery at the long table at the maze around the back of the hotel. Sunday 5th August 8:30pm til late. What say you?

Sounds perfect, instead of having long discussions about when and where (which are only necessary for non-LA locations). And quite a few people here have gone before so they know th place.

And I'll make sure to drag Zeb along too.

So did anyone hear why there was no Blur party this year? I am assuming it was just economy related? A darn shame it didn't take place. :-(
