Last week, Jill Bennett, Dara Nai and I violated our collective parole and descended upon New York City. Our objective? To
crash attend Logo’s NewNowNext Awards and to help Sarah and Lori co-host an AfterEllen.com Meet-Up at Cowgirl.
Along the way, we also sprung AE vlogger Bridget McManus (Brunch with Bridget, You Can’t Take Them Anywhere), Dara’s partner Brooke, AE vlogger Dee (Come With Me If You Want to Live), the 3Way gals (Maeve Quinlan, Nancylee Myatt, Paige Bernhardt), Oscar-winning make-up artist Tami Lane, actor/comedian Gloria Bigelow, and Big Gay Sketch Show star Kate McKinnon.
We were shocked and thrilled by the sheer number of AE readers willing to brave the rain and allow us to make the pleasure of their acquaintance. Thank you to everyone for coming out to say hello!
Since not all of you who wanted to be there could make it, we shot some video footage of our journey to the meet-up (including a heated discussion about power tools) and our time at Cowgirl. Look closely and you may even catch a glimpse of yourself at the restaurant! (Hopefully, you weren’t playing hookey from work that day like I was. Doesn’t it seem like the boss is always watching?)
