Lockhart Steele hosted a private bash for friends and foodies on the third floor of The Spotted Pig Monday night to celebrate the relaunch of his Eater site. The attendees included Gawker crew new and old: Nick Denton, Neel Shah, Elizabeth Spiers, Foster Kamer and Andrew Krucoff.

There was also a turnout of restaurant owners such as David Chang of Momofuku, and publicist-cum-anecdotalist Sloane Crosley, Fashism founder Brooke Moreland, and FourSquare developers Dennis Crowley and Harry Heymann. Spotted Pig owner Ken Friedman was also on hand to man the festivities.

Page Six’s Paula Froelich On Her Novel’s Inspiration: “All Three Main Characters Are A Part Of Me”

mercury.pngLast night, we hit the ritzy party celebrating the launch of Page Six deputy editor Paula Froelich‘s first novel, “Mercury in Retrograde.” The party, hosted by Estee Lauder exec John Demsey in his sprawling Upper East Side townhouse, was filled with Froelich’s friends like Cosmopolitan editor Kate White, “Today” show host Hoda Kotb, actress Katrina Bowden from “30 Rock,” former Fishbowlers Rachel Sklar and Glynnis MacNicol and Froelich’s latest Page Six co-worker Neel Shah. We offered Paula congratulations amid the free-flowing rose and bacon and peanut butter hors d’ouevres but caught up with her today via email to get some insight on “Mercury.”

“I wrote a novel because — well, I’ve always been a good story teller and thought, if I can write the way I talk: it’ll be amazing!” she told FishbowlNY. “I just wanted to write about women in general.”

As the New York Media World Turns

fbnygg.pngTwo different stories are floating around the very fishbowl-like world of New York media today (hey we didn’t just pluck our name from a hat). First off, Radar is reporting that Gawker may finally have found the managing editor they’ve been looking for in Gabriel Snyder, formerly of the New York Observer and most recently at Variety. Gawker-head Nick Denton put out word last month that he was looking for a replacement, though Gawker was unable to confirm the pick when we contacted them earlier.

Meanwhile, a tipster tells us that Radar scribe (and former Gawker intern) Neel Shah may have been tapped to fill the vacancy over at Page Six, a position Defamer’s Molly Friedman was also rumored to have been up for. Radar was unable to confirm. Stay-tuned!
