More Pictures From Flacks ‘n Hacks

fnh.jpgIf you like looking at pictures of media people looking goofy, check out some more pictures from our Flacks ‘n Hacks party on Monday night here. In the one at left, PRNewser editor Joe Ciarallo tries to literally beat FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst after brutally beating her in Guitar Hero. Don’t worry — no blog editors were harmed throughout the night.

Broadcasting & Cable‘s David Tanklefsky also wrote about his experiences playing Guitar Hero on Monday. He may be no Hendrix but, hey, neither are we!

Hacks Defeat Flacks In Guitar Hero Showdown

hnf1.jpgThe hacks managed to pull out a Guitar Hero win at last night’s Hacks ‘n Flacks party at Artica Bar. Our win was, in large part, due to the amazing GH stylings of AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven, and no thanks to FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst, who was crushed by PRNewser‘s Joe Ciarallo during the first round of the competition.

The bar was jammed with journalists and publicists mingling, drinking and enjoying the sounds of Aerosmith-themed Guitar Hero — despite the occasional video booing when players couldn’t complete a round.

One hack and one flack — the high scorers on each side after several rounds of play — scored two free passes each to Mediabistro’s media panel on Thursday.

Thanks to everyone who came out, and a very special thanks to those who bravely attempted to play Guitar Hero. We know it wasn’t easy, especially with everyone staring at your butt!

Check out more pictures from the night after the jump.
