LHC First Beam Day ended with a bang last night in the SF Bay Area - swissnex, an annex of the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco, threw a party! Around 200 folks were there, with physcisists from all around the area. The champagne flowed, the food never ran out (a minor miracle given an entire roomful of physcists) and the consulate even gave out free bags of stuff. What more could you ask for? It was great to celebrate with colleagues and let our hair down. Wired magazine was there and commemorated the event by interviewing folks about their LHC expectations: Well, I did say the champagne flowed.... and we were all giddy in our excitement about the LHC! A truly excellent time was had by all.
