For those not in Chicago for the 2011 X.Org Developers' Conference (XDC2011), here are a few photos from the Phoronix beer event yesterday. The full photo-set of XDC2011 will be published on Phoronix in the next few days, but here's a few highlights aside from the ones published already.

Tuesday was the Phoronix-sponsored beer afternoon at XDC2011, which happened prior to the Q&A panel, so it was fairly entertaining. Here's some of the interesting/comical photos. Feel free to suggest captions for these images (or guess what was going on) using the discussion link for the Phoronix Forums at the bottom of this entry.
