Last week I ventured to my first Circuit party. For those unaware the Circuit is "an organization designed to promote and facilitate the meeting of entertainment industry professionals in the New York area" (that's right out of the membership letter - membership cards are on their way soon I've been informed). Events so far have occured at places like Neogaea and Movida with an after party at the Tribeca cinemas. Curiously (or maybe purposely) all three places have balconies from where one could survey the crowd... not that I'm one who likes to stand atop balconies and survey the crowd, but the options there. It's an interesting conceit, tossing out the pretense of films and events to bring together the people who want network, drink and possible get some nookie (yes, i wrote nookie), whether it will work i think depends on one thing: Free Booze. There are too many events out there that provide some sort of drink specials to compete with out it. So circuiter organizers (can we call you inductors?) get to work on those alcohol sponsors.
