OSCON: Where are the good parties at?

Portland, Oregon It seemed to work pretty well for JavaOne, so let's try it for OSCON...

This week, the best Open Source Conference will take place in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon. I went to high school just south of Portland (Salem) for a couple years and my parents still live there. Portland is one of my favorite cities, my parents are two of my favorite people and OSCON is one of my favorite conferences. Seems like an excellent combination for a really fun week.

I'll be flying to Portland with Jack and Abbie on Tuesday. Wednesday I'll be at the show speaking; Thursday I'll be there listening and likely blogging. I hope to catch a happy hour on at least one of those nights. Friday, my family and I will be heading to the Oregon Brew Fest followed by a night at The Kennedy School.

So when and where are the good parties at during OSCON 2008? Here's what I know about so far - I'll add to this list as comments start flowing in:

As far as finding me at the show, it's probably easiest to follow me on Twitter.

Update: A reader e-mailed me about This seems to be an excellent source of OSCON party information. I've updated the above list with the ones that look good on Wednesday and Thursday.
