The concept is that all the participants will tour through the five departments and spend an hour in each over the course of a friday evening. Each department will have something planned to entertain thier guests.
I'd like to play on the "nerdyness" of our trade, but I'm a little short on ideas. I'm not sure entertaining the crowd with stupid users stories all night will be as fun for them as it is for us.
Have you been to a great IT-themed party that I can borrow some ideas from? Any typical drinks or snacks for geeks, short of coffee and burritos?"
