After the booths closed down, we were invited to several different hospitality suites, sponsoredby different vendors.
The Cisco hospitality suite had an Elvis impersonator and a beautiful bride. Her name was Trixie. The bouncers at the Computer Associates (CA) hospitality suite wore the same shade of green and blue colors from their logo. The APC hospitality suite went with an Island/Pirate theme.
