Judging by the huge crowd at the mediabistro.com PR Party at Philip Marie on January 14, you would never guess it was raining cats and dogs outside. What began as a trickle of PR folk soon advanced to a flood of eager partygoers from a variety of organizations. Even mediabistro.com PRNewser blogger Joe Ciarallo made a surprise appearance. Guests sampled Philip Marie's delicious treats and fine wines. It was a wonderful turn out with great conversation and even better company.
A special thanks to Philip Marie for providing a luxurious backdrop for what proved to be an enjoyable evening.
