Wix Lounge Launch Party
The Wix labs loft party last night was wonderful. Just off 18th street a lovely crowd including pop culture analyst John Nubian, Victoria Monsul, Arie Rich, Ryan Strauss, Masquemag's Kelly B and other digerati. The Wix lounge will be a free space for creatives in Silicon Alley to drop by -- 10 West 18th street -- for free WiFi, coffee, meetings, &c, &c. Victoria Monsul of Wix (see pic below), who will be managing the space, says she is open to suggestions on how to make it a really happening place (I suggested some cool speakers on, say, Monday nights, when there are no scheduled NY parties going on).
The cupcakes were popping, the beer and wine flowed almost endlessly, the crowd was smart and there was a mini-photography studio in the back -- all that was lacking was the great graffiti wall they had at the last event. The general consensus on Twitter though is that the event was an unmitigated success.
