MediaElites.com Brings Media’s Elite Together With Holiday Spirit

Last night’s Holiday Blowout hosted by MediaElites.com at 200 Orchard had all the ingredients for a good old new media holiday party: open bar, a feeling of good will (donate an old coat!), plenty of media types milling around and Big Buck Hunter. Sometimes reporters just need to let loose, and we’d rather they did it with a video game and a big plastic gun, because it’s just so much more fun that way.

Representing MediaElites.com (formerly ASSME) in the crowd was founder Aaron Gell and our fellow Fishbowl-er Drew Grant. We also spotted all the usual suspects, including many former FishbowlNY editors, Dylan Stableford, Rachel Sklar and Glynnis MacNicol.

We also learned that media party-goers can give as good as they drink; after asking attendees to each bring an old coat to donate, MediaElites carted away five nine garbage bags full of outerwear.

And as for Big Buck Hunter, we hear the big winner of the evening was media blogger Jeff Bercovici of AOL’s Daily Finance, who swiftly defeated Advertising Age‘s Nat Ives and publicist Shawna Seldon of the Rosen Group. Glad we sat that one out.

More pictures after the jump.
