Fete

NYC is a continuous smorgasboard of dos, galas, events, happenings, openings, presentations and parties. If one has the time, interest and the inclination to go, you could keep very busy flitting from one to the next. And I know many who do occupy their time this way. Many events have substance; many are attended by those who want to see and be seen. Or both, or anywhere on the spectrum in between. The Wired Magazine people have been running a temporary retail store during the Xmas season, featuring the hottest gadgets, with their motto Geek Out in Style. The Wired Store, at 160 Wooster Street in SOHO, is open this year from November 17 - December 31. Last nite was the Wired Music Spotlight sponsored by Giant Step and Knob Creek and featured "the latest in the world of Latin and Soul grooves, with acoustic performances from Stephanie McKay (Astralwerks), Malena Perez (Cubanita Grooves) and music selects provided by Rafe Gomez (The Groove Boutique)." Click here for more photos. There were plenty of freebees, beverages and music. Check out their calendar here for upcoming events ...

It was a party/promo - give some freebees and entertainment. Drive more business to the store.

Fellow NYer here. Love your photo series. Do you really take new photos every day or do you sometimes take more than a couple and post a new one each day? Just curious! :-)

Eric of Paris Daily Photo started this concept - I have been meaning to suggest guidelines. I do both - it is not always possible to get a photo I want to use on a given day. But I endeavor to use most photos in a timely manner and not dip into old archives.
