As the show was winding down on day two my evening was a bit uncertain...when I was presented with a wrist band into the THQ party. Chad and I decided to head over there and boy were we glad we did. Waiting just outside of the convention center were stretch limos to take everyone to the party.
The party was on the roof of The Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles and it was a REALLY nice place. When we arrived, they switched out our wrist bands for the Hotel silver version which made us happy we got there early before they ran out. I got texts from friends asking if I could get them in, but it was literally impossible.
I was checking out the roof area and ran into Tomonobu Itagaki near the pool...and of course had to get a photo with him. He asked if I wanted to jump into the pool with him and on hindsight I totally should have.
The view of LA from the hotel was incredible...so I had to spend a bit taking some pics.
I then saw Bonnie Burton, the winner of the G4TV booth babe contest and she quickly showed me why. As she saw me taking this picture, she immediately stopped talking to the guys in front of her and made this pose for the camera.
As the sun set, the night continued to get even better...Chad and I were able to sneak into the VIP area! I stood up at one point to take a couple of pictures and noticed my stool was gone. I said something to Chad about it and he gave me that silent "look to the left" nod... Rachel Bilson had taken my stool :) So, I talked to her for a bit and then she was nice enough to take a picture with me.
I never expected to see someone I had actually met before in the VIP area, but then we ran into Christina from the PIMP.tv crew. Luke and Aron were around filming somewhere(I would LOVE to see that footage)
The evening wouldn't be complete without running into Adam Sessler and Abbie Heppe. After chatting for a bit, I promised if they came by the Red Faction: Armageddon booth the following day at 5pm as the show closes...i'd give them a special version of the demo.
All in all, it was a fantastic night and one that I'll not soon forget...
