Heeb: The Money Issue Release Party

Heeb editor Joshua Neuman with the Jewish Robot

I just got back from a swell party at Movida in Manhattan, sponsored by Heeb Magazine in celebration of the release of the Money Issue. Highlights in this tenth issue of the magazine include interviews with Jeremy Piven and Lisa Loeb. Highlights of the party include hanging out with cool characters like Allen Salkin, author of Festivus: The Holiday for the Rest of Us; Heeb Director of Business Adam Baruchowitz; Heeb Editor Joshua Neuman; Esther Kustanowitz (we meet at last!) of My Urban Kvetch; and, as usual, several women from JDate who never wrote back to me.

In honor of MONEY, pennies were scattered outside by the velvet rope, and vodka drinks were free until 10pm. I stuck gum on the bottom of my shoes so I could surreptitiously collect the pennies at the entrance, and use them to tip the bartenders!

Hello!! I am sorry I missed this shin dig. Josh Neuman, Heebs editor looks just divine not missing any opportunity to make a contorted face and the way Adam Barachuwitz is stoned and smelling Erez...shit that's priceless. You are hott too Willy, Reeer.

Esther Kustanowitz said...

Yes, we finally met. I don't know about "alas," though....

Maybe "at long last we meet," followed by some ridiculous duel where we slap each other across the face with long white gloves.

Sadly, J. Piven was no where in the hizzouse. Oh well.

Esther, you're right! That was a grammatical error, based on me trying to remember a line to some movie where they must have said "At last we finally meet". Irregardless, it was nice to meet you.

In the photo with the caption Esther Kustanowitz and Heeb contributor David Kelsey isn't that Jewlicious' Grand Muffti talking to EV behind Esther and Kelsey?? Motherfuckers! I didn't know they were allowed to party without me. Must have missed the memo.

Lilit nevermind the robot. call me baby.

Esther Kustanowitz said...

Imagine that...and Muffti and I didn't even coordinate. He's all up in the Jewish party scene now...

CK, I know here's the part where I'm supposed to say that we all just sat around saying "Sigh, wish CK was here."

But we poured out a 40 in your honor.

Oh crap Lilit's mom is a WASP. It's discouraging when the alleged pretty Jewish girl isn't so Jewish. Why do I even bother...
