CENTURY SAN FRANCISCO CENTRE 9 — Where are the girls? An event producer and I both nervously paced through the lobby. Where was Marissa Mayer? The Google executive had rented a theater for the 8:50 screening of Sex and the City, but she and 300 of her closest friends were nowhere to be seen. Late, of course — have you tried to walk the block-long distance between Mayer's Four Seasons penthouse and the Westfield Centre in a pair of Manolo Blahniks? Finally, I spotted someone I knew — gorgeous Googler Brittany Bohnet, girlfriend of Facebooker Dave Morin, above. ("People are saying I look like Charlotte," said Bohnet, pictured above. "Do you think so?" Yes. Cuter than Charlotte, actually.
AllThingsD's Kara Swisher also showed up with her Googler spouse, Megan Smith. "We're dressed as lesbians," said Swisher. (How was one supposed to tell the difference? Oh, right — usually Swisher's dressed like a soccer mom.)
Somewhere in the confusion, the event's producer thrust a ticket in my hand, and I walked into the screening. No sign of Marissa, though, who I'd heard was wearing a Pucci dress. Before I could spot her, the producer walked up the aisle to my seat. "Owen?" he asked? Yep, that's right — eighty-sixed again. I spotted Orkut Buyukkokten, Marissa's best gay friend, on my way out. Not that I minded getting booted, really — I hear the movie's not all that great. I was more interested in the trailer I saw for Mamma Mia — hey, Marissa, can you throw a screening for that, and invite me?
I'll leave you with one last pic of the moviegoers:
