ICON's hot Webzine Word

On Monday, June 30, ICON held a hot party to celebrate the second anniversary of it's trend setting Webzine Word. When I say hot, I mean hot. Someone forgot to turn on the air conditioning in the Audart Gallery--an interior windowless space on 60 Broad St. They should've just passed out towels at the door 'cause the party was more like a suana than a schmooze. Word publisher Thomas Livacarri huddled with his wife in the the single room equipped with a tiny room unit air conditioner hoping feel a puff of cool air as it blew past. About the only people dressed for the sweltering occasion were the scantily clad go-go girls dancing on raised cubes to cheesey mid-sixties fake pop music in the front room. Take that Razorfish!
