Black Hat: Vendor Parties

A conference wouldn’t be complete if there weren’t vendor parties at night.

The best one I attended was the SPI Dynamics party at TAO. They had an open bar serving top shelf liquor, and they had an assortment of appetizers like sushi, lobster and shrimp dumplings, chilean sea bass, and kobe beef sliders.

Other parties that I heard of but didn’t get invited to:

  • Cisco party at Pure on Wednesday night.
  • E&Y party at Ghost Bar on Thursday night.
  • Microsoft party at Pure on Thursday night.

Speaking of the Microsoft party, I heard that it was a party for only exploit contributors. I know several people that contribute to them in other ways that got denied access.
