Photos from Hollywood On Tap

Saturday afternoon, October 20, 2012, was the first Hollywood On Tap beer festival benefiting The Blank Theatre Company. This fund raising event was held at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. The festival included more than 40 craft brews and included dozens of local craft brewers, several food trucks and live music. 100% of the proceeds went to benefit The Blank Theatre Company, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Regular readers of this blog know that I have been attending many beer festivals sin the last several months; so of them have been going on for a while and a few of them have been first time events. If I did not know better, I would have thought this was an event that had been going on for a while. It was very well done.

They had just under 1,000 attendees which is very good for a first time event, and there were no obvious issues for anyone. The live music included a Who tribute band and a couple others along with a DJ. While the Who cover band was my favorite, it was pretty obvious everyone was enjoying all the music. As far as the beer was concerned, there were several award winners from the 2012 Great American Beer Festival held last week. I could go on, but looking at the photos will show you what a good time it was and how much fun people were having. I am really glad we went and I can not wait to see what happens should they have a 2nd Annual Hollywood On Tap. I sure hope that happens; I will be there if it does.

2012 Easyriders Bike Show Anaheim

It is that time of year again as the Easyriders Bike Show Tour kicked off yesterday at the Anaheim Convention Center. I have been pretty busy this year photographing various events and getting ready to hit the trade show circuit, I spaced out that it was happening already. Luckily, one of my Facebook friends is a roller derby girl that was giving an exhibition at the show. Her status update reminded me it was happening now, so thank you Facebook and Darla DeVill.

As this was a last minute outing for me, I did not get there until the last couple of hours of the show. By the time I got there, I suspect most of the attendees had already left. That was okay with me as it just made it easier to take photos without getting in someone’s way. The ride to Anaheim was a little faster than riding to the Sacramento show as well. Continue reading

Affiliate Summit West 2012 Begins

Internet marketing event, Affiliate Summit West 2012 begins tomorrow, January 8 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV. As I went through the photos I took at ASW11 I was reminded at how impressed I was at how much Affiliate Summit had grown since my last visit in 2008. If there is any doubt about the success of this event, consider that this is the 19th consecutive show that they have sold out due to capacity. That is pretty impressive. Unfortunately, I committed to something that fell through, so I was too late to try and get out to Las Vegas.

For those of you that are attending, I am going to suggest that you attempt to obtain a pass to the Affiliate Ball, which will be held at the Crown Theater in the Rio. It is starring hip-hop artist, Nelly and it is put on by Darren Blatt. I have known Darren for many years and he always puts on a great party. I highly recommend attending if you can manage it. In fact, if someone contacted me and said they wanted me to cover this party for them, I would fly to Las Vegas immediately. His parties are that good.

For those of you that thought ahead and got passes for ASW12, enjoy your show. I will do my best to be there next year. Continue reading
