Cocktails with Courtney ~ A Harmonious Night

Everything was in Harmony at the Harmony Bar on Houston Street Wednesday night, January 27th for my fourth "Cocktails With Courtney" party. Martinis were being carefully held and delicious hors d'oeuvres were being popped into the mouths of various guests. Steve Introcaso of Sun Microsystems, regular scene-ster Kevin Sickles (of Sun and WWWAC Board member) came by. Louis Giacalone TechScan Newsletter stopped by early enough that we had a chance to chat about the NYSIA event last week. Real Media sales director (eastern region) Chris Axberg, Viant's Marylyn Dintenfass, Jennifer Madrid of Merrill Lynch, and new media PR consultant Jim Bruni (sans his Armani jacket) all came for the intimate gathering. My cousin Lisa (who broke away from NAPTE crazy New Orleans) met some good people from Jane magazine and Eric Grilly of NandoTimes flew in one night early just for the party. Wasn't that nice of him?! :) The Mass Transit guys -- Jason Burnham and Danny Schaeffer -- brought online marketing consultant for the firm Hope Distant along. And Len Stein of Visibility PR (great name, huh?) stopped by. Olive media's Stephen Fritz and Bob Troia, Cool Site of the Day Mike Corso and graphic designer Stacy Lautzenheiser came by. Marissa Raderman, who's now at Doubleclick brought along some friends and some of my non-new media friends and fellow volunteers from the Junior League came by to see what this crazy internet crowd is all about! All in all it was a
 fun night in a hot new spot (E&O used to be at this address).
