    Let's be honest. Most Christmas Parties rate somewhere between an obligation and a bore. This one was simply 'off the hook'. So many great people in one place. All actually happy to be there. A great thanks to all of the selfless organizers.

    The party was great. Lots of folks, a bit loud, a bit crowded in some spots, and thats fine. Amazingly there were spots that weren't that crowded and even though I am a non-smoker, the smoking room was great for food and conversation.

    I had a good time networking and meeting new people. Parking was pretty easy <phew> so it was fun all around. The Arsenal is such a fun local bar with friendly regulars who made me feel welcomed.

    Great party. Loved the location (despite lack of parking) and the crazy crowd.

    Great Meetup overall. Arsenal was Ok, but a little crowded and hard to hear. It was really great to meet so many people from this LA group being from the OC group.

    Excellent. Good people, good food. Photo booth was fun. Good place to network, talk shop, learn and be part of an actual face to face social network and get off the computer for a bit.

  • Dave V.

    Loads of fun, tons of people. I think there were some prizes. Would have been slightly better if we had "hiring" and "looking" stickers.

      Good call but I had so much fun just enjoying everyone and eating and drinking!
