When Duncan scheduled a late night Martini Madness event up in the city I had to go.... Well because I love Martini Madness events but also because this one was extra special to celebrate photographer Gene Higa's Birthday. The event started at 9:00 pm and was scheduled to go past midnight.
And created some super cool effects in some of my pictures.

Well I hate to admit it but by 11:00 I was done. I still had an hour drive ahead of me to get home so I left before the Birthday Boy arrived :( As I headed out I ran into John Woods from Enhanced Lighting and Sound.
On my way home I made my usual stop at In-N-Out Burger for a quick bite. I'm guessing I was probably back in San Jose when Gene arrived at Infusion. Sadly, I had to settle for wishing him a belated Happy Birthday the next time I saw him. In tribute I Photoshopped this picture of Gene, taken at a different event, of what it must have looked like when he arrived at the club. I know, pretty lame, but hey, I tried :)
