2002 Recap

"Final Analysis: With such a top-notch guest list, how could NBNYE2002 be quantified as anything but "classic"? The only thing missing was the people who didn't show up."

2002 Invitation

THE 10th ANNIVERSARY NIGHT BEFORE NEW YEARS EVE PARTY
8:00 pm on Monday, December 30, 2002

Has it really been ten years since I began hosting a gathering to celebrate New Years Eve Eve?  Possibly.  It may have been nine.  Certainly isn't eleven.

At any rate, as we prepare to leave this last palindromic year for over a century, the NBNYE celebration falls once again on a day appropriate for Grace, my favorite Bar/Restaurant/Ritual. Which means that, just like last year, I'm very generously _not_ providing the alcohol. What a guy!

Feel free to bring friends, loved ones, and detritus.

And remember, there’s no better way to start New Years Eve day than with a serious hangover.

With affectation,

Jonathan Van Gieson

2002 Reminder

THE 10th ANNIVERSARY NIGHT BEFORE NEW YEARS EVE PARTY
8:00 pm on Monday, December 30, 2002


The time is now, or nigh, depending on when you read this email.  Be sure to join us for an evening of enjoyment.  Dov has apparently arranged something resembling hors d’oeuvres, which is more than I could get off my ass to do. On the other hand, who would you ask to design your website?  Me, or Dov?  I thought so.  (Do all of you know Dov?  Everybody, meet Dov.  Dov, meet everybody.)

For those of you who have already RSVPed regrets, this email will serve to remind you of the wonderful time you’re missing. Schedule now to be available for NBNYE ‘03.  (“The Rockin’est NBNYE EVER!”)

For those of you who have been asking about couture:  Haut.  Or at least haughty.
For those of you asking if you can bring friends:  Yes.
For those of you who go to Australia and don’t bring your co-producer:  Dead.

If I don’t see you tomorrow, have a wonderful new year, despite the chilly silence to which I will subject you for missing my damn party.

With love like lightning,

JVG
