MoMilli – UPDATE: 3/22 "party" (drinks) LyricsFollow
Por la gente
Thanks for your prompt feedback on the earlier invitation. Some recipients were unclear from its tone if I was joking, to which I say--
Date: Fri 3/22
Location: The Jade Hotel bar, 52 W.13th St NYC
Time: 7pm or so (drop by, or disperse elsewhere divey with us after)
My friend Tom asked me to make some clarifications, so text and video commentary from the Rap Genius community, verified for accuracy by me, follow at the link below. Go to the location listed above, not to the Marriott mentioned here. As hilarious as the Marriott bar would've been, Midtown is a haul, and my understanding is that this new place is like the Ace Hotel except "not yet fully operational." Fun concept!
If you're new to the invite, or not in NY, or don't know me that well, mea culpa. I tried my best to cast a wide net. In any case, you're invited! And I apologize if you're accidentally bcc'd here again after a "no" RSVP. Take solace, friend: In my plebiscite, you're "dead to me."
Based on preliminary data collection, we could have a pretty eclectic group coming. Or no one at all. Here are some icebreakers:
To the medical people:
"What did you match in? Where are you moving? Are you excited?"
"That's so good of you. Oh, that must be so hard."
To the "creative types":
"So, are you the one who wrote ___?"
"I liked __. I really liked ____."
To the inner circle:
"Do you know ___? Do you follow her shares?"
"How old is she turning?" (N.B. Not my birthday.)
You can practice with a partner in a turn-and-talk, though to date I don't know if any friends-for-America will be there. Please feel free to bring along your own friends, especially any contra-America types
WILL YOU JOIN ME?! (see attached)
Hope to see you Friday night
