    Oh What A Night: Photos From Last Night’s NYC Mini-Meetup

    When we planned our mini meet-up series, we expected a few geeks in a bar somewhere drinking and swapping stories about C#. Nothing prepared us for the onslaught. At one point, 1,256 of us filled all three floors of Bar 13, a techno club near Union Square, and for most of the night I was jostled, bumped, and generally mauled by the crowd. It was, in a word, amazing. If you missed it, shame on… Read More

    CGM Night: CrunchGear visits Otaku party in Tokyo (photo report)

    Being based in Tokyo has its advantages, and one of them is being close to Akihabara, the world's paradise for all things geek: Video games, anime, manga, Cosplay, figures, maid cafes etc. etc. And over the weekend, I was fortunate to be invited by one of Japan's most famous otaku (and Japan) culture bloggers, an Englishman called Danny Choo, to "CGM Night".

    25 years of Lomography means its time to party!

    The Lomo LC-A camera, the ur-point-and-shoot that introduced Lomography to the world, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. If Lomography is your thing, look for a Lomo party near your. If you don't see one, why not set one up? And don't worry if you don't actually have an LC-A camera! Just buy CameraBag for your trusty iPhone and pretend you have a Lomo with the Lolo filter! LOL!

  • Party Rats, the ultimate accessory for dancing poorly

    Party Rats, the ultimate accessory for dancing poorly

    Every time I go to a wild and crazy rave, someone always points out the lack of rodents. They’re always like, “Man, this party is bumpin’. If only someone had thought to bring a bunch of rodents, my night would be truly remarkable.” Now, thanks to Party Rats, you can be that someone. You can make the night remarkable. At first glance, Party Rats seem simple. They’re… Read More

  • Google Earth: Throw a party in someone else’s pool

    Google Earth: Throw a party in someone else’s pool

    Some no-good kids in the UK have been harnessing the power of Google Earth to find houses with nice pools. Once a suitable house has been found, the kids use Facebook to send out some sort of “Crash This Pool” app or whatever the hell it is that you kids do on Facebook these days. Everyone shows up at the pool, beer and cigarettes in tow, and starts doing “the bump” or… Read More

  • Kid gets real Mario Party… awwwww

    Kid gets real Mario Party… awwwww

    Audrey loves her kids very much. For her son Tanner’s birthday she created a Mario-themed party complete with cool invitations, costumes, coin boxes and even Koopa decorations. She bought green and red hats, marked them with L and M, and made funny mustaches. She then bought some goodie bags and even made a supercool cake with Mario on it. Let’s just say nobody ever made me a supercool… Read More

  • Floating lamp: Balloon with built-in LEDs

    [photopress:floating_lamp2.jpg,full,center] Every one of y’all needs to petition the designer of the floating lamp, a balloon with an LED base. Fill her up with helium and you’ve got, yes, a floating light. Since the balloons follow all the laws of physics, you can expect them to last only so long before they fall back to the earth. Probably the best thing I’ve seen in a while… Read More

  • CrunchGear/TechCrunch/MobileCrunch Barcelona Meet-up report

    [photopress:scaled.IMG_1359.JPG,full,pp_image] Proof: It was not a total sausage party. There was sausage, obviously, but it was chorizo. It has been said that there is no party like a CrunchGear party because a CrunchGear party never comes to an end. This, friends, was true about our strange little meet-up in a weird paella place near the Fira last Wednesday where I got to meet some cool… Read More

  • CrunchGear One Year Bash Recap

    CrunchGear One Year Bash Recap

    Mmmmm… prizes Manhattan’s Red Sky last night played host to a gathering of geeks and geek sympathizers the likes to which the world has never seen (at least not this week, granted it was only a Monday night — but that’s neither here nor there really. You get the point.) Anyway, the occasion? The CrunchGear One Year Anniversary Celebration, of course. What else could have… Read More

    Parrot PARTY Portable Boom Box: Cue "Ain't No Party" Jokes

    Bluetooth crazy Parrot showed off two new music playing widgets at the British Invasion-themed Pepcom trade show thing last night. Pictured above, the Parrot PARTY (yes, its name is in all caps; no, I don’t know why) is a small stereo boom box of sorts that hooks up to your A2DP-compatible cellphone or anything else that works with Bluetooth. Once paired with the device of your choosing, the… Read More

    Crumpler B4B Party

    Hypnotic From Chicago I just got back from the Crumpler B4B party at the Highline Ballroom in NYC and I’m a little buzzed. The event was a success and this year was way better than last year. If you missed it then you’ll have to wait another year. The folks from Crumpler sure know how to throw a party. Enjoy the video and pics from the party. Read More

    When you win a CrunchGear contest, you get treated right. We went with our two winners Hana and Alka to breakfast with the Secret Machines, Cesar from Zune Insider and a host of other media-types (and a couple other contest winners) this morning, and had a great time celebrating the Seattle launch of Microsoft’s Zune media player. Hit the jump and see a photo recap of the day including… Read More

    Looks like Gizmodo got more footage of another raucous party held in honor of a small piece of plastic and some wires. Boom-shaka-laka-ActivSync! Look for friend of CG, Vince, cursing his Vienna sausage at the end. HTC 3125 Launch Party in New York: Enjoy the Decadence [Gizmodo] Read More
