On a cool, damp night, a warm glow radiated from the scene at the mediabistro.com Design Party on December 4. Marked only by a solitary cerulean figure, Blue Owl was the place to see and be seen, as guests flooded the bar for the chance to catch up with colleagues and make new friends. Savory concoctions were enjoyed by all, and the stylish, speakeasy tone of the evening was undeniable. It's hardly a secret that mediabistro.com events are unforgettable!
A special thanks to Blue Owl for providing a lush backdrop for what proved to be an exciting event.
