Team Party Crash: Gawker Gets the Huffington Post Drunk

Eric Alterman, Michael Stipe, and Arianna Huffington walk into a bar...
On Wednesday night, Gawker publisher Nick Denton decided to be a little less selfish than usual and threw a soiree in honor of Arianna Huffington. The Huffington Post founder was in town to distribute air-kisses and feta cheese, which is as good of an excuse as any to fill Denton's loft with 500 billion of our closest frenemies. After the jump, media clusterfucking and chaos courtesy of staff pornographer Nikola Tamindzic.
