I can’t promise anything for Paris or Munich residents but if you’re in or around New York or London then the 21st March 2003 holds a great party opportunity for you! In New York you’ll be helping a good cause – Doctors Without Borders, who will probably need lots and lots of money over the next few months, are having a benefit at Northsix in trendy Williamsburg, and NYLPM’s own TRACER HAND will be DJing from 1am. Here’s a website link if you want to go (and you know you do).

The unrelated London event will not be helping a good cause, indeed it will be helping a bad cause, namely the expansion of my beer gut, but come along anyway because I am turning thirty and have hired the top room of a pub, and NYLPM readers are all invited to help me celebrate. The pub is The Blue Posts on Rupert Street in Soho (off Shaftesbury Avenue) and we’ll be getting going at 6. Good company, good music, booze of varying quality, and it’s open until 1am. Happy Birthday to me!
