A reader attending the Oracle OpenWorld convention, who wants to be credited as "someone who's there," passed along these pictures of the scene under the tents on Howard Street. Yes, people, they closed off your city block so attendees could eat roast beef and fried chicken in wax-lined paper boxes in peace. The Howard Street tent apparently seats "thousands." Keep their conventioneering stomachs in mind as you get diverted onto Mission Street, everyone!

More pictures after the jump, and ....uh oh! Here comes the disclosure!

Thanks for the pictures, Someone Who's There!

The person on this site who works for Oracle is offline tonight, and thus has absolutely no idea that we're running this while he's away.
