I'm hosting day two of the Home Film Festival tonight. I think it's like Sundance without the skiing, tiresome stars or fear of Redford getting handsy with ya.

Wanna come? There's an after party, but don't know the free food free booze 411. If you do decide to come, just mention my name at the door.

PS what it says on the Spider Club write up on the NYT web:

For the more sedate and chosen few, there is also the members-only Spider Club which, according to the blurb, is located "somewhere between the first smile ever recorded on a human face and your last laugh," but can be reached through a private entrance on 20th Street. This sharp space, featuring a cozy back-lit lounge and small dance floor, is a second home to models and high rollers, but manages to maintain the intimate feel of a fun and slightly rowdy lounge bar.

High rollers? Models? I should fit right in.

PPS I'm aware this NYC hot spot review might be from 50 BC
