Daily Candy editor-at-large Dannielle Romano grabs hold of DC founder Dany Levy. We fear we have pictures of Dannielle displaying similar enthusiasm for us.
Tuesday night wasn't just the BlackBook party for A.M. Homes; it was also the fete for Daily Candy's new book, Daily Candy A to Z : An Insider's Guide to the Sweet Life. Staff photog Nikola Tamindzic and erstwhile Intern John Carney hit them both, but the Daily Candy affair left Carney too spent to write about it till today. After the jump, Nikola and John's adventures in Candyland — which, shockingly, was apparently populated with a lot of girls.
If you don't know what Daily Candy is, you must have a below-average tolerance for shopping tips dressed up with sickly sweet cartoon graphics. Either that, or you're a guy. You see, every last un-fat chick in New York — and dozens of other cities — gets a mind-numbingly chipper email every day from these ladies. If you don't believe me, ask your girlfriend. This is how they know where to shop and what color lipstick to wear and which day in spring is the official "Girls Start Wearing Skirts Day."
But that's only part of why I thought this party would suck. Also, there wasn't going to be anyone to fight. And also it was at Guest House, which is on 27th Street, the heartland of "Clubs You Won't Like." Then there was also... oh wait... never mind. Holy shit there were a lot of girls at this party.
See. There were lots and lots of girls at the party. They were cute, and soaked with free vodka.
This is Dany Levy. DailyCandy is her fault.
Smut king Rufus Griscomb was actually overheard giving parenting advice to DailyCandy CEO Pete Sheinbaum. Snore. But both were thinking, "Holy shit there are lots of girls at this party."
Daily Candy's Danielle Buffalini and former DCer Allison Griffin, now of Teen Vogue, had to guard the Rorschach Personality Test wallpaper from the vodka soaked guests.
DailyCandy investor Bob Pittman — the $100 million man — took time out from counting his money to drop by the party and thank all the little girls who are about to make him even richer.
amNew York's Justin Silverman and furniture porn king David Galbraith were thinking "Holy shit there are lots of girls at this party."
This girl was there. She hates you.
This is the famous metro metrosexual of The New York Times, Nick Confessore. You know what he was thinking? Yep. "Holy shit there are lots of girls at this party."
ICM super-agent Kate Lee stood by while Maxim's Eric Gillin and IAC's Mo Koyfman whispered to each other, "Holy shit there are lots of girls at this party."
Thrillist's AJ Daulerio and David Galbraith. Do I really even have to say it again?
