Gadgets Galore at the Holiday Spectacular Event Tonight!

Hey geeks and geekettes! I’m in New York at the moment, kickin’ it old school because tonight is the Pepcom Holiday Spectacular event. Yee haw! Acer, Asus, Samsung, T-Mobile, RIM, Nikon, Canon, and many, many more companies will be in attendance, and I plan to snag exclusive coverage of the latest gadgets via pictures and videos. There’s a possibility I might get hands-on time with the T-Mobile Galaxy S II, and I’ll see what’s new with the Parrot AR.Drone crew.

These wacky events are usually donned with a madcap theme to spice up everyone’s evening, and this Holiday Spectacular event is entitled “Parisian Holiday.” In fact, here are the literary highlights from the email I was sent, just to ensure that you get your money’s worth out of this post–or should I say Euros (canned laughter):

Oooh la holidays! Enjoy the sites, sounds and tastes of Paris at Pepcom’s annual Holiday Spectacular! press event. It’s a “Parisian Holiday” without ever leaving New York City! Mingle with more than 75 leading tech companies at the country’s largest, most popular holiday preview event, and check out the toys and gadgets that will be on everyone’s wish list this year! But to rendezvous in Paris, we need your RSVP! Merci beaucoup!

Holy exclamation points, Batman! One of my favorite themes was Roller Derby in which the models dressed like referee girls. One of them ended up blowing the whistle on me for an event misconduct, but it led to dinner after the show. Ah, the good old days…

Look for coverage later tonight and early tomorrow morning, but for now, bon voyage!
