Party Photos: The Freelancer Party in New York City

At Sweet and Vicious, October 7, 2003

Posted October 13, 2003

It seems about right that mb's second Freelancer Party was held at Soho's Sweet and Vicious. After all, to be successful—to entice editors into listening to your pitches, and then to snag them into a lucrative deal—a good freelancer has got to be both a little sweet and a little vicious. Last week, though, all kinds of freelancers put their viciousness aside and a sweet time, schmoozing away over stiff drinks.
