Party Photos: Cocktails in Europe

At the Rockwell Bar, London, January 13, 2004, and Winston Churchill, Paris, January 15, 2004

Posted February 2, 2004

mb's peripatetic founder, Laurel Touby, went on a Grand Tour of Europe last month, and she was sure to schedule visits with our favorite transatlantic media pros. Downing pints in London and sipping champagne in Paris, Laurel and her pals had a great time seeing old media friends and making new ones.
