Denver ’08: We Drink CNN’s Milkshake!

100_2983.jpgCNN may equal politics, but the CNN Grill equals heaven. FBNY is currently inside the Grill drinking a chocolate milkshake with no plans to move, maybe ever. CNN has done a very good job of branding the convention space and the Grill (in our opinion) is the crowning glory. It’s a sort of conventioners oasis set up in the perimeter zone. You have to have a CNN credential to enter (or know someone who does) but once inside there is free food, and drink, and a dessert menu that includes a “make your own cupcakes” option.

It’s also the place for hungry and thirsty heavy-hitters. Rahm Emanuel is sitting at the front table with his children, CNN head Jon Klein has a booth to our left, LA mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is getting interviewed in front of us, and Nancy Pelosi and her entourage just sailed by. Anderson Cooper is chatting it up with Walter Isaacson and we think we just spotted Jeffrey Wright. Did we mention the free milkshakes? It’s also a bit of a mediabistro alumni lovefest — we’re sitting here with former FishbowlNYer Rachel Sklar and the original FishbowlDCer Garrett Graff…word on the twitter is that Patrick Gavin is on the way.
