eBay Live! wouldn’t be the same without the parties, and this year vzaar, Frooition and ChannelAdvisor came together with TameBay to host the British drinks on the Friday night at the Elephant and Castle pub.

Some sixty people turned up, including customers and fellow bloggers (hi Scott and Julia). There were some familar faces from the UK and some new faces from the US..

Whilst I don’t know many British pubs in the UK with a picture of Margaret Thatcher on the wall it didn’t stop many a pint being sunk, let alone the shorts.

The guys from ChannelAdvisor were busy taking pictures (cheers guys!). So was Adrian from vzaar, although sadly rumour has it he left his camera in a taxi so some American is probably admiring pictures of us Brits raising a pint or three on a Friday night in Chicago.

All in all a great night and although I believe someone was busy signing up a new customer most people were there for the drinks.

If you’re wondering why we don’t have a single photo of the gang from Frooition it’s because they were busy hiding in the corner, talking techie code with Sue, and downing plenty of beer – I have a feeling they’re pretty well versed in what a Friday night at the pub is all about ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I feel I must point out that sitting in a pub with Sue and lots of beer (cheers Gren!) talking about PHP and Star Trek is a particularly fine way to spend a Friday night ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Great Night – Thanks to everyone who came along – Whilst the Thatcher picture raised a few smiles it was the VERY LARGE photo of Camilla Parker Bowles firing a bow and arrow (possibly at Prince Philip) that made me almost spill my drink ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. “Hello” own the rights to Biddy’s party snaps, didn’t you know that Lynne….You need to get the July issue,, even bumped Colleen & Wayne to page 4 !
