Loads of wonderful friends old and new came to the Warehouse Cafe in Port Costa, CA to help pay tribute to the accomplished life of Juanita Musson, who took over the Warehouse in Port Costa and “quickly stood out in a small town already known for its characters.” Well known for her heavy drinking, her large breasts, and her tendency to lift her muu-muu to piss in the street, her spirit encouraged one and all come to a party to lose their inhibitions and gain their confidence!
Bras were padded,, muu-muus were donned and fake genitalia was brandished with glee. Proud merry making was had, along with plenty of humiliation – a good-natured and bawdy lewdness that would surely have made Juanita proud!
We had extraordinary, legendary, epic performances on the RVIP Lounge for the East/West/Investors/Press Karaoke Showdown. Techcrunch summarized the event here. East coast startups were represented by Foursquare. West coast startups by Get Satisfaction, investors by Andreessen Horowitz, and, lastly, the press by Wired.
Performances “and the general ability to ‘bring it’” earned points, and OMFG did people bring it. Dennis Crowley got the crowd moshing to Kelly Clarkson’s “Since You’ve Been Gone”, Thor Muller crowdsurfed and got audience members to remove their pants, and Yujin Chung made the people sing. BUT…
The RVIP 2011 SXSW Contest winner is…. THE PRESS, represented by Jon Snyder (Wired) and Seth Porges (Popular Mechanics).
