The Rumpus Turns One-Year-Old

It seems like just yesterday that this GalleyCat editor joined more than 300 New Yorkers at the launch party for The Rumpus. Tonight, the literary website will team up with HTMLGIANT to celebrate its one year anniversary with another New York City party.

Founded by author Stephen Elliott, the literary website has grown into a hub for writers and readers around the country. To help you prepare for this year’s party, we offer this video of last year’s part–a webby time machine taking you back to another cold winter night…

Here are all the details about tonight’s party: “We find it appropriate to celebrate our fitness for survival in the age of the interwebs and to kick off a great new year with an evening of literary and musical offerings in grand Rumpus style. The multimedia evening will feature readings by a line-up of literary stars… WHERE: Broadway East, where Chinatown meets the Lower East Side. 171 East Broadway (nr. Rutgers). View Map. Kitchen will be open with a light menu of snacks. WHEN: January 21, 2010 7:00pm-10:00pm, $5.”
