  • Party Planning!

    Hello everyone, we're all getting excited for Defcon this year and I'd like to get the party planning started! Rumor has it that the people who ran the Penthouse party are not getting the penthouse again.

    I know it's true. BECAUSE WE'VE RENTED IT!

    That's right, a new group, a new format, and we've got plans on how to avoid the hotel's "helpfulness".

    More info to come, we don't want to let too many secrets out yet.

    Just curious but why do you think your attempts at running 'the penthouse party' will be any more successful than the previous groups? I ask only because it seems like that location is forever cursed to be a fun free zone.

      By greasing the wheels, of course. We're confident that by putting the right cash in the right places and by jumping through the correct hoops we'll be able to pull off at least one night of fun!

        Well, you have certainly started on the right track by posting to forums we know the Riv reads. In all seriousness, good luck. Hope it works out and l look forward to checking out your party. Have fun!

          Update: After hearing about some of the problems from previous years, we're going to get a backup suite to move the party to if they decide to change their mind about us. The penthouse is already under an alias, and we'll get the backup room under a different name too.

          Thanks for the advice!

            Go re-read Eris' post. The Riv folks regularly read these forums. Y'all aren't really getting off on the right foot with this.

              Hah. Was just about to ask if greasing palms still works if you announce to the whole world that you're doing it. Thanks guys, good to know I'm not alone in that thought.

                Were there complaints with the penthouse party from previous years?

                The only thing I know that was a pain was the NO Smoking signs being changes to Smoking (of which the security guard didn't laugh) and offering to pay the fine to have him leave us alone.

                Other than that I thought everyone had a good time?

                  I talked with some of the organizers from years past and they said they kept getting raided because of the noise. So we arranged to have the rooms below the penthouse empty for the night. Fortunately our contact at the Riv is setting it up so we don't have to actually pay cash for them!

                      All I can do is sit back an wince, it's like waiting for the band-aid you know is gonna be ripped off. It may be cool because it's an awesome spiderman band-aid but the f$ker's gonna get ripped off eventually.

                        This discussion has been extracted from "party planning" to this thread. Please continue that conversation, there, so this can go back to party planning.

                        Thanks!

                          It's like a hacker con version of a Jackass episode. I hate it but I can't stop watching....

                              First of all: that group was The Aristocrats. We've had it every year since we've moved to the Riv.

                              Gloat all you want, because the reason you have that suite is because we've let it go. I was the major planning and financial backing and I've decided to stop for no other reason other than I'm tired of fighting to get *you* drunk. Perhaps I'll do something this year, perhaps not. I personally don't even think I'm going. Seriously.

                              I wouldn't go as far as to say the site is cursed, but let us say the Riv is less than helpful.

                              As for talking with us, we're not really aware of who you even are of if and or when we've talked with you. Considering I'm the one that did most of the planning; it sounds like you were talking to a third string player at best. I wouldn't trust what you heard unless you want to go about identifying who it was.

                              Even if you *were* talking to someone useful, do you really think they can articulate the intricacies of the politics of the Rivera to you over a 10 minute, half drunken, entirely tired, conversation?

                              I hate to tell you, the problems are NOT just noise. There are so many other issues that I could literally talk for days.

                              Planning for that party usually started in October before con. Yes that's right, 10 months prior. And we're not talking I made a few phone calls. I generally was working, 2-4 hours a day depending on the tasks and I'm not the only one.

                              Good luck! I have to agree, you're not getting off to a good start. For instance: you're about to repeat the first mistake we made year one. Trusting the Riv at all. The only reason the party ran year one is cause we caught them totally by surprise, even though we were totally open upfront and honest with them!

                              Oh and hope you pack your piggy bank, because the BEST you can hope for is a several thousand dollar fine. Personally -- I've been banned from the hotel for life AND had to pay a huge fine.

                              Methinks you need to lurk more. Sounds like someone's about to get a vicious ass raping. Maybe I will show up just to watch this... :)

                              There's a reason you most likely don't know who I am:

                              A. I'm not a credit whore. I don't care who gets blamed as long as everyone has a good time.
                              B. Silence is golden when it comes to the Riv. The less they know the better shape YOU'RE in.

                              Anyways good freakin' luck. Just so you know, we've heard the "Yeah we're not booking those rooms" gag before. It's always a good time.
