SHOT 2012 Day 2 – Inside the Press Room

Last night was a bit long for all of us. We walked miles around the show floor, talked with countless PR reps about hundreds of products and wrote them up for you all to enjoy on this here website. We worked late into the night last night getting everything on “paper,” so late that they actually kicked us out of the press room so they could clean it and had to move our floating craps game of a publishing empire to RF’s suite to continue the binge. Despite getting only a few hours of sleep here I sit at 8 AM in the press room, back at it again like a meth addict with a paycheck. I figured while I have nothing better to do I should snap a quick picture and show you all how terrible the conditions are in this room.

The free coffee, soda and breakfast is nice, but what really makes me never want to leave is the free wifi and free beer. Courtesy of Budweiser, a fine “American” company.

The sacrifices we make for our art…

    Based on their political contributions, I would say that Budweiser is “democrat” beer.

    I’d say that referring to Budweiser as “beer” is a little generous, IMHO. As I’ve said before, it’s worth what you paid for it.

    You’re with Randall Flagg?

    It sounds wonderful. Vegas is great.

      I’m formally inviting you to SHOT show 2013. What say you?

        I just may take you up on that. Half my family lives there, we’ll probably be visiting in the summer.
