From Robert Scoble to Laura Fitton to Tara Hunt, all the stars were out last night at the MashBash SxSW. If you weren't cool enough to get a VIP wristband the line for the party went around the block. Wait times were so long that people eventually created a check-in for the line on Foursquare.

one thing i loved about this party, was the variation between areas of the bar. there was the crowded "internet star" studded area downstairs, there was open areas to play pool, air hockey, (etc.) and there was the upstairs dance party. yea, there was a long line, there always is. but it was definitely a great party with lots of great people in attendance.
