Beowulf Bash Returns to New Orleans Nov. 17

bashHeaded to New Oreans for SC14? There’s one party you don’t want to miss: The Beowulf Bash 2014 takes place on Monday, Nov. 17 from 9pm to midnight.

What: Beowulf Bash 20th Anniversary
Date: Monday, Nov. 17
Time: 9pm – Midnight
Place: Mardi Gras World, 1380 Port of New Orleans Pl, New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 361-7821

Last time the Beowulf Bash was in New Orleans we had our “Big Wheels Keep on Turning” party on a riverboat in the rain. There were so many people we literally caused the boat to list heavily to one side. The Bash has something to celebrate this year: the 20 Anniversary of Beowulf. The party will be held at Mardi Gras World — a venue that is literally across the street from the Convention Center. This site is where the floats are created for the famous Mardi Gras parade.

In addition to an authentic and unique Mardi Gras party, our gracious vendor sponsors have agreed to provide some of the following important New Orleans experiences:

  • Local food and adult beverages
  • Beads and feathery type things
  • Conversations about HPC
  • Henna tattoos
  • Walking heads
  • Stilt walkers
  • Talking heads (vendor speeches)
  • Cajun/Zydeco/Blues music
  • Voodoo stuff and palm readers
  • Magicians
  • Strolling poker & strolling roulette tables
  • A possible parade
  • Out of control revelers who are quickly thrown out

At insideHPC, we are proud sponsors of the Beowulf Bash, so we hope to see you there after the SC14 exhibits close on Monday night! We even have a PDF postcard invitation that you can send to your HPC colleagues.
