SMS party pictures

NYC culture king, Andy Horwitz, is running for mayor. He's created a new political party called the Blog Party, and is now working on getting his 7,000 signatures to get on the ballot come November. He graced the Start Making Sense party last night at Pioneer Bar, and took some fabulous pictures... Anyone else have pics? Send 'em on over...

All-in-all, the party was a smashing success. A few of my progressive heroines -- Arianna Huffington, Laura Flanders, Katrina vanden Heuvel and Amy Goodman -- made it to the party and talked with lots of our readers who came by; I got up on the bar (in Pioneer Bar tradition) and made a quick speech; Don Hazen and Lakshmi Chaudhry had a few words to say; I nearly forgot to tell everyone how dependent I am on Evan Derkacz's PEEK. Our other fearless host committee members -- Nina Berman, James Bernard, Danny Goldberg, Tony Newman, Rory O'Connor, Janette Sadik-Khan, Danny Schechter, Micah Sifry, Robin Templeton, Jackie + Randall Wallace, and Chris Wangro -- get a big shout-out from me for helping us organize and support. w00t!

To sum up: A hot book for a hot party on a hot summer night!
