Zuning In

October 018

Tuesday, I went to a Microsoft part at the lovely Park Avenue Armory.  I was one of the lucky people to get a Zune HD for free. It’s a great media player, but I still need to figure out how it all works.  Now, I can listen to radio again, so I hear Jay-Z’s “Empire State Of Mind” anytime I scroll over to Hot 97.

DJ Tiesto performed at the party, and though I am not a big fan of club music, I danced my ass off. Plus the carpet on the floor made it easy to jump around.

Afterward, the Boy and I went to Rodeo Bar for dinner and saw this group, The Ukeladies. They were fun!

The Week In Links (Parties, Brisket and A Wedding)

Buddy Media Summer Tweetup!

The dog days of summer are here. I thought the social activity would slow down but no!
Monday, I attended the Dachis Group meetup at the Church Lounge of the Tribeca Grand.

Tuesday, I stopped by the Agency Spy party and then went to see Carolyn’s show at 59E59. Read a great review.

Wednesday, I ate beef brisket and hung out with friends at Buddy Media’s event at Hill Country which they announced the launch of their very cool and comprehensive Twitter analytics product.

Thursday, I sauntered down to Soho to the  Peek party. I met Peek Founder Amol Sarva and chatted with Greg Gallant about Muckrack’s new one line press release service.

Saturday, I was a guest at the lovely morning wedding of Colette and Sean. The reception was at Brooklyn Botanical Garden. In the afternoon, I went up to Harlem for another of Matt’s BBQs.

Wednesday, I went to IWantMedia’s The Future of Media panel discussion. Carmina recapped it excellently.

Friday, I attended PSFK’s Good Ideas Salon on Collaboration. Met some very cool people including Andrew Cherwenka of Trapeze and Sam Nelson of Formed With Art.

Friday night, I partied at the Webutante Ball. Fun, crowded and not like my prom since people actually stayed there long after they took their pictures which is amazing since the drinks were expensive.

The Week In Links (Mach 27): Erin, Elline, Betty and Delia

An Evening of Reinvention

This week was about all the ladies which is very appropriate since it is the end of Women’s History Month.

Wednesday, I attended the book party for The Lazy Environmentalist.  Spotted Top Chef’s Gail Simmons there.  Kelly Samardak from MediaPost covered the event and took pictures.  It was great to see Alexis Tirado, Caroline Waxler and the girls from Morris+King, Katie Smith-Adair and Jen Moses.

Thursday was a night of Reinvention at SAKs.  Alyson Campbell from AMP3PR told me about her inspiring client Elline Surianello last summer, but it was like a real-live Oprah show to see Elline speak about women and hair loss. Editors from Betty Confidential were there, and I met the wonderful Annette Moore of Crowned Regal.

Saturday, I went to BAM Cafe to see Erin and Her Cello, and the show was packed. The show was enhanced by a horn section and a tap dancer, Danny Gardner. Then the boy and I headed out to Fort Greene for the monthly Dig Deeper show at the Five Spot Soul Food Supper Club.  Each month,  Dig Deeper features a live performance. Many of the artists haven’t played NYC in decades, making every show a once-in-a-lifetime affair. Delia “Dee Dee” Gartrell was the singer who threw down Saturday night. Her soulful voice filled the room. The Sweet Divines and The Divine Soul Rhythm Band backed Miss Gartrell.

Thrillist 3rd Anniversary Party

Since I am all about pre-gaming for my birthday, my friends and I stopped by the Thrillist party after the Agency Spy party last night. When we got there, the line outside was almost around the block, but luckily Flavie, Thrillist’s wonderful Director of Communications, got us in quickly. It was good to see old friends and a new one, Marlo from Sweet Revenge. She was there because her delicious cupcakes were there. I just wish that the were not displayed in plastic cups, but the party people were probably too busy dancing  and/or hooking up to notice. The party was crazy crowded which facilitated a cameo appearance by us before dashing out to grab dinner at Mr. Dennehy’s. The server there was nice and the food was pretty tasty. Carmine Street is quickly becoming one of my new favorite places in the Village.

Read This: The Decline Of Men

decline of men by guy garcia, originally uploaded by nichellest.

Last Friday, I stopped by the book party for Guy Garcia’s new book, The Decline of Men: How The American Male is Tuning Out, Giving Up, and Flipping Off His Future.

This book is really interesting with a mix of anecdotes, biology, statistics, and recent pop culture references. It is a critical of men in America today. I hope the Y-chromosome survives. Even though, I sometimes suffer from manesia, I think men are kinda super.

I had a fantastic time at the Budget Fashionista’s 5th anniversary party.
Bloggers, friends, celebrities were there to celebrate Kathryn Finney.
I got a free pair of jeans! I ate cupcakes! The DJ spun some fun music!
