The Faster Times, The Rumpus, and Gigantic Present:
The 2009 Wall Street Holiday Party
Monday, December 14, 2009, 7 p.m.-10 p.m.
Glasslands 289 Kent Avenue (between 1st and Grand) Brooklyn
Come drink champagne and party like you just got a $3 million bonus!
As creative types–writers, journalists, artists etc.–we tend to miss out on big corporate holiday blowouts complete with chocolate fountains and drunken co-workers embarrassingly making out beneath mistletoe. Those of us who work from home rarely even see other people, or wear “clothing.”
So this year, let’s don our Wall St.-inspired Holiday Best (You know, that suit you had dry-cleaned about three years ago just in case you an opportunity to wear it arose), and get down like it’s 2003 and Bernie Madoff has yet to steal everyone’s money.
For one night only we can all pretend to be rich.
If you actually have a corporate job, never fear. This party will provide the kind entertainment no Wall St. firm would ever allow. We’ll be having an (affordable) silent auction, and entertainment TBA.
Join us in celebrating another fun, if fiscally irresponsible year!
