Stir Celebrates a CEO's Birthday

ON FRIDAY I VENTURED downtown to the Susie Wong Lounge in E&O for Stir president Chris McCarthy's birthday party. Deep red lighting unveiled some of our favorite glitterati: Emily Davidow, of BeHome; Josh Davidow; Tery Spataro and Alec Pollack of Stir.Net; Greg Elin; Marielle Smith; Kate Cohen, Avalanche; and Nancy Cross, Mining Company. If it weren't Chris's birthday, Zachary Cross would've stole the show--the cutest little 18 month old boy we'd ever seen. He was just as mesmerized as I was as Tery showed us the true use of a Pilot--as a lipstick compact. Heather Champ and Alex Chaffee graced our presence, and Kyle and Gabrielle Shannon descended upon us for a quick breezy "Hello."
