Who said nerds don't know how to party?

Numerous after-hours events are being planned in conjunction with this year's Consumer Electronics Show.

Despite sluggish sales, a weakening economy and lower-than-last-year numbers expected at both shows, a wide assortment of happy hours, ballroom fetes, and all-out blow-outs are about to take place.

Unfortunately, most of the after-show CES events are like the show itself: Closed to the public. Still, there are a handful of promising parties that everyone is welcome to attend.
