Party Photos: Cocktails for Screenwriters in NYC

At Nolita House, June 7, 2005

Posted July 1, 2005

This new boite overlooking Houston Street (and, we confess, above one of mb's very favorite dive bars) was the spot for our recent gathering of screenwriters. Our hosts, screenwriting instructors D.B. Gilles and Michael Zam, were on hand with mb's education director Carmen Scheidel to make these aspiring behind-the-screeners feel like stars.
