Hacks Look To Smack Flacks At Guitar Hero Throwdown Monday

hacks.pngThis morning, we saw that our colleagues over at PRNewser were promising to “axe” the journos (or “hacks”) at the Flacks ‘n’ Hacks party we are jointly hosting on Monday. Well we’re not going to take that lying down! We’re hoping to gather a great group of journalists — who are also very skilled at Guitar Hero — so we can lay the smack down on the PR pros.

Come join FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst, TVNewser editor Kevin Allocca and mediabistro.com editorial director Chris Ariens as we challenge PRNewser editors Joe Ciarallo and Team Flack to a Guitar Hero face-off.

And if Guitar Hero (and our presence as hostess) isn’t enough to entice you, there will be drink specials! And at the end of the night, two winners — one hack and one flack — will take home free passes to Mediabistro’s online news media panel next Thursday.

Here are the details:

What: Drinks and conversation

Who: Flacks (PR professionals) & Hacks (Journalists)

When: Monday, July 13, 6:30 to 8:30 pm

Where:
Artica Bar & Grill
384 Third Avenue
b/w 27th & 28th Streets
New York, NY 10016
