A Tweedy Set Downtown

Keeping in tradition with their popular boozy-gatherings, the Downtown Alliance served up yet another bizzy-group of networkers on Thursday, October 21st at the Beekman Pub. Well over 200 people came and stayed on after the expected hour, enjoying the zitti and passed-hors d'oeuvres sponsored by Milbank,Tweed, Hadley & McCloy. Lisa Novitt, director of the information technology district, told me the vibe was great and upbeat. So many of the young urban hipsters of technology companies from the downtown (and a few mid-town) region came out for this fun event, they spilled out from their private back-room to the bar area and took over the booths.
