The fake journalist party crasher guide

Y'all know how I feel about the Eat & Drink Club, and now AM New York has done a story on how to crash media parties. (I linked to Gawker because the comments are priceless.)


Rebirth of the cool . . .

Don Draper of AMC's "Mad Men."

You may not have Don Draper's swagger, but any man can channel the taste of the stylish, brooding protagonist of AMC's "Mad Men" at Sonotheque's monthly retro event. Rebirth of the Cool—the sexy jazz dance listening lounge of music past and present—happens tonight with deejays Joe Bryl and Eric Williams behind the 'tables. No cocktail specials, but we hear our boy DD likes his Canadian Club whiskey neat. 9pm-2am. $5.

Other cool-ass events happening tonight:

The new Old Town location for Galleria Liqueurs throws the most budget-friendly bubbly tasting I've ever seen. You'll get to sample Moet, Veuve and other prominent brands at the Grand Champagne Tasting, which is certain to turn into a lively party. 6-8pm. $10.

Eno's hosting a sweet set pairing chocolate and wine, featuring nationally recognized chocolatier Christopher Elbow. Guests will be treated to his luscious creations complemented by the sommelier's vino selections. 6-8pm. Free.

And, if you're thinking about throwing your own sexy little soiree, head to Galleria Unico for the grand-opening event to check out the party space everyone's talking about. Preview furnishings by CORT and room decor by Art of Imagination, plus indulge in delightful bites by the Hearty Boys. Comped cocktails, too. Music Masters Entertainment spins. 44 E. Superior St., 773-895-0464. 6-9pm. No cover, but RSVP to to get in.
