Inaug Eve Party-Hopping: MoDo’s ‘Timeless’ Quality, Traveling With the Jonas Bros.

100_3637.JPGOur two favorite stories to come out of last night’s party-going both involve New York Observer reporters. The first from Gwen Iffill‘s book party hosted by Atlantic publisher David Bradley at his home on Embassy Row. Rumor has it when a certain NYO media reporter asked guest Maureen Dowd (looking svelte in black lace) whether or not she had a minute for the paper she answered “No.” Did she have 50 seconds? Still no. Forty-five? Nope. And so on. In a last ditch effort said reporter wanted to know whether MoDo had time for one question. Not so much.

Meanwhile, NYO‘s Felix Gillette, who was declined an invite for the HuffPo wrist-banded cluster scene last night at the Newseum, managed to sweep in as part of the Jonas Brothers entourage. For her part (also uninvited) Julia Allison told she’d managed slip through the security by storming the red carpet.
