Wednesday night, I attended a fun event at Morimoto celebrating the launch of Motorola’s new phone, DROID. The DROID by Motorola us a smartphone powered by Android 2.0 developed in partnership with Google and Verizon Wireless, the nation’s largest 3G network. The DROID was go on sale November 6.

Guests can chose to get either the DROID or the CLIQ. I chose the CLIQ which MOTOBLUR for its social networking capabilities. [I will let you know how it works when I get it.]

The food at Morimoto -sushi, oysters, shrimp and tiny fish burgers- were so good. I want to go back for dinner.

I hung out the usual suspects of the Consortium List, and it was great to see a few celebrities like Judah Friedlander, Guillermo Diaz, Sam Talbot from Top Chef, and Constantine Maroulis.

Niche List: The Collander For Your Calendar

Years ago, I had an email newsletter, then a blog named “Nichelle Newsletter”. Both of those extinct vehicles were used to spread the word about cool stuff and promote events that I love.  It seems that a list is needed again, if only so that I can keep up with events I may be going to.  Hopefully I will run this weekly on Tuesday nights/Wednesday mornings since that is the best time for me and I will only post up to five things.  So here goes!

Friday October 16 Royal Flush party at Crash Mansion. Open Bar. 4 bands. (Sounds like a clusterf#@k, but I am a sucker for parties thrown by obscure magazines.) Topic? Animal? Anyone?!

Tuesday October 20 Emily Farris’ 5th Annual Casserole Crazy Party at Brooklyn Label. I will be judging the casserole contest along with Tom Mylan and Rachel Wharton.  6:30PM

Tuesday October 20 Erin and Her Cello performing at Googie’s (Upstairs at Living Room) at part of CMJ 11:30PM [Client]

Wednesday October 21 #140Conf Meetup at MSNBC Digital Cafe. I will be speaking. 5PM.

Friday October 23 New Work City First Anniversary Party. 200 Varick is my second home. 8PM

If you know me, then you may know Matt, so check out his Consortium List which usually comes out on Sunday nights.
