Trending: SpaceX aces a fiery rehearsal of the worst-case scenario for Crew Dragon spaceflights

You made it through the mid-term madness. Now, it’s time to have some fun.

Our annual GeekWire Gala — one of the geekiest holiday parties on the planet — is taking place on Thursday, Dec. 6 and we’d love to have you join the festivities. Early-bird rates end Thursday, so now is the time to rally your colleagues to join the party.

Go here to purchase your tickets, and if you’ve got a cadre of colleagues who want to join, make sure to check out the group rates.

This year, we are headed to a new location at the historic Showbox Market in downtown Seattle, and we’ve got some surprises in store.

Make our gala your holiday party! And connect with other members of the Seattle tech communityI

In terms of dress code, you have the rare license to don cocktail attire in Seattle — or wear whatever you want for that matter. Tuxedos? Sure. Geeky T-shirts? Yep. Or, get in the spirit and come dressed as Frosty, one of Santa’s little elves or your favorite Star Wars character from the ice planet Hoth. The Moz photo booth will offer plenty of opportunities to showcase your sweet duds.

Also, if you have not already, make sure to enter the GeekWire Gala “Ugly Sweater” contest! See everyone on Dec. 6 at the Showbox!
