And now a quick note to all readers, friends, blog trolls and forgotten boarding school roommates in the greater New York metropolitan area who don’t have incredibly important business to attend to next Tuesday night (that means all of you): PRNewser will be throwing its first party of 2013 with the help of the Mediabistro events team, The Empire Room and our fine sponsors at Horn Group.
Some details, ’cause you know you want ’em: the event will take place Tuesday, March 19th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (yes, that’s one week from today). The venue will be The Empire Room, a “Deco lounge” at the base of the Empire State Building on 33rd Street between 5th Avenue and Broadway on the island of Manhattan. The host will be your truly humble editor, who will say a few awkward things into a microphone before impressing everyone in attendance with his growing tolerance for hard liquor! (Ed. note: I don’t do Scotch though, sorry. It’s a flavor thing.)
Most importantly, the first 100 guests to arrive will receive a ticket for a free drink–once again courtesy of our sponsors at Horn. Everyone on our mailing list should receive an official invite soon, but here’s the online RSVP in case you want to make sure you’re registered. Oh, and feel free to file your complaints via email if you haven’t received an invite.
Again, that’s the Empire Room, one week from today, RSVP here. No excuses!
