Under The Hoop with John Chow – Affiliate Summit Tip-0ff Party

Last night was the Affilate Summit Tip-Off party at the Hardwood suite of the Palms Hotel. The party started at 10PM but there was a VIP reception at 9PM for special guests. I had a private area directly under the hoop of the basketball court. Syed even created a foursquare location for it. He didn’t tell anyone about it so he became the mayor.

Within 30 minutes of opening to the general public (everyone was invited), the suite got packed with wall to wall people. I estimate we had over 1,000 people showed up. Guests were treated to a premium open bar, a shooter station and rocking DJ music. The bar was lined up 10 deep. It’s a good thing I had my own bar-tenderness at my table.

The party was a lot of fun and I enjoy meeting everyone. I even brought along a breath tester but it went red even before anyone blew into it. I guess it detected the amount of alcohol in the room and just defaulted to red. Syed and I then came up with a new drunk tester. He put on an, “I’m John Chow, Bitch!” t-shirt and asked people who the real John Chow was. If they said me, they weren’t drinking enough.
