More Old-Timey Talk: Party Like It’s 2003

The old fogey in me loves the spirit of this email: Ok guys. It’s time to live life in retrospect. Things were easier (and much more fun) back then. This email isn’t about your run-of-the-mill party. It’s about the gathering of friends under the umbrella of a common cause. To take back the nightlife. To …

MisShapes and Friends Make It to London Fashion Week

If you checked out the Henry Holland’s House of Holland fashion show that took place during London’s Fashion Week, you may have spied some familiar faces–one Leigh Lezark (of The MisShapes fame) and one Jackson “I’m Not JT Leroy” Pollis strutted their stuff in the show. Sadly even their best pissed off faces (see above), …

The Last Night of MisShapes: A Roundup

It’s true what they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder. As the MisShapes packed up their weekly party, the New York news outlets came a-runnin’. Check out the press that was done about the last regularly-scheduled ‘Shapes and/or the book: New York Magazine did a piece where they mainly interviewed Geo and revealed some …

Get On Your Dancing Shoes: The Last Misshapes Party Is this Saturday

They said these good times couldn’t last, and I guess they were right because the MisShapes are hanging up their headphones and having the last ever weekly MisShapes party at Don Hill’s this Saturday.

What Shandi from ANTM Is Up To…Guitar Hero

In a recent story about Guitar Hero Nights as a bar/club draw: Others players, like Shandi Sullivan, a former contestant on “America’s Next Top Model” and a regular at Pianos, appreciate Guitar Hero more …

Tricia Romano’s “Fly Life” 5th Year Anniversary Party at The Box

I just got home from celebrating Village Voice scribe Tricia Romano‘s 5th year anniversary of her “Fly Life” column at a fabulous party hosted at The Box. Ok, I’ll admit, I’ve had a little bit to drink right now, and I’m drogging blunk-ish. (Isn’t that sad? My instinct is to blog–even while slightly intoxicated.) One …

Listen to Music to Save a Kittie

Sarah aka “Ultragrrrl” is putting on a benefit show to support two really great causes that put abused and abandoned dogs and cats with foster families.

Number One Socialite Tinsley Mortimer Loves Emo?

I found this invitation to uber-socialite Tinsley Mortimer‘s New Year’s Eve party particularly confusing…she’s hosting a shindig at Japonais, but the “special guest” isn’t so other similarly fabulous socialite, nor is it a famous movie star, but rather it is none other than America’s favorite emo punk rocker, Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy. What …

Am I Too Old to Completely Enjoy SPIN’s Year in Music Party?

So as you might have noticed, for the last few months I’ve been Captain Super Boring, rarely going out to see *gasp* concerts and even less frequently going to dance/club nights of my friends. On one hand that makes me feel like a bad person, on the other hand I am an old lady and …
