Today at Giz Gallery: Live Gadget Blending at 3PM

Illustration for article titled Today at Giz Gallery: Live Gadget Blending at 3PM

It's Saturday. The hung over day after our Giz Gallery reader meetup, which went on late into the night with some Pizza and Xbox on the 103 inch TV with Giz Alum Benny Goldman doing his best Biggie Smalls karaoke. (Uh, if anyone got photos of any of last night's debauchery, could you email them to me? I forgot to take photos.) Chris and I are just finishing sweeping the floors and we're ready to have more guests look at our wonderful and weird collection of gadgets. It's all to help buy Toys for Tots. If you're in NYC, you have to come down. If not to see the big TV and say hello, then at least to see our special events that are happening today and today only.


Watch Matt and Adam face all comers in our Deathmatch for Charity happening at 1PM until they give up, and at 3PM, we'll do a live Will it Blend demo using our computer controlled Blendtec blender. While they haven't sanctioned this public showing of their fantastic shredder at work, I think if you bring some gadgets to destroy, I'll consider it.

SteveDave checking in here. Watching the live feed is killing me. If I didn't have something important already planned tonight, I would totally show up again. Of course, I would also plan my escape from NY to NJ better than I did last night. In the end, I walked into my house at around 9:15am Saturday morning, after a lovely trip through the NJ public transit rail system.

But as for yesterday? I can't describe how AMAZING it was to see all of the cool displays and gizmos you guys had set up. The only thing that topped it was the people. Getting to meet face to face with everyone who have stolen so much of my productivity, from the commentors to the writers, made all the various odorous people I was forced to sit next to while traveling home worth it. I apologize to everyone whom I have forgotten due to the copious amount of beer I had ingested and how bad I am with names. I should have written down things. D'Oh. When this happens again, I think any commentors who go should make up a little nametags featuring our Gizmodo names and possibly our avatars, as it's so few of us use our "real" picts for our avatars. The Deloreon was so cool, and all night long you could see flashes from outside as people took pictures with it(I should have taken a picture near it with my "Clint Eastwood" hat).

There were also some real funny moments, the best of which, at least to me, happened at the meetup. From the great line the doorman gave me when I said "Howdy" to him(I forget what exactly he said, but my excuse was I was from Jersey), to the hilarity that ensued when we were asked our names inside the door, to see if we were on "the list"(Do you have GitEmSteveDave listed? Girl:"Are you kidding me?" OK, how about Andy Williams, Ponies, etc...). I don't think I will ever miss another meet-up again as long as it's in NYC. I will be posting picts on my Photobucket page here if anyone wants to look: []
