Last Night's Blip TV Bash
It was shoulder-to-shoulder last night at the crowded Blip.TV bash at Mocca Lounge, located at 78 Reade Street (at Church). "Lists were put aside and the doormen were asked to smile so that all that arrived for the event were welcomed without any hassle at the door, staying consistent with the platform of the blip.tv philosophy," reads today's press release about the event. Very democratic, that. I met my favorite socialites Nichelle Stephens and Matt Caldecutt, enjoying Bulldog gin cocktails and hors d'oeuvres nestled in one of Mocca's leess crowded areas. "Someone important might actually take your picture," kidded Matt. He's right, of course; I get invited to a lot of these things, but I don't nearly do enough legwork and attend and report. Also attending were Richard Blakeley of Gawker, Joe Ciarallo of Media Bistro, Andrea Chalupa of Huffington Post/AOL, Peter Feld, and Natan Edelsburg of Globalquad.com.
