Party Photos: Cocktails in Seattle
At the W Hotel, 03.11.03
Once again, Seattle media folks took to mediabistro.com like a
duck takes to wateran important standard of measurement in this rain-soaked
region. The W Hotel was an oh-so-swanky place, where black clothes and big attitudes
ruled, but our media crowd successfully elbowed the other patrons out of the
W Bar for the night. Which taught Seattle an important lesson: Never get between
a journo and his (or her!) drink.
