If you've ever gone to a conference and not known what to do on the first night, you should check out Party with Palermo. Hosted by Jeffrey Palermo, these parties are a good time. Free finger food, free swag, and free drink. The next one is for Alt.Net and the MVP Summit. On the first day of March 2009 from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM the party will be at Jillian's 731 Westlake Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109.
The event is fun and easy to attend. Palermo wants people to RSVP on his site. Even if you don't respond, you can still show up. The price of admission is one business card. It is easy and will give you a fun event to attend.
If you are not going to be there at that time, don't worry there will be other parties with Palermo later.
