“This is our fifth mixer. People are like, ‘Andrew, what could be next?’ And it’s like, ‘Oh. Done.’ We have a mechanical bull. Game-changer. Innovate.”Hahahaha. That's great! It's a perfect parody of the BS-speak endemic to tech culture. EXCEPT IT'S APPARENTLY REAL. That guy actually said that, unless the reporter made it up, which I hope is true.
MECHANICAL BULL. GAME-CHANGER. DISRUPT THE PARTY SCENE.
This maybe-true-or-not not-party happened at the W Hotel, which is just perfect. I happened to be at the W Hotel a couple of weeks ago to meet a friend who was in town and the W Hotel is like somebody decided 1998 or 1999 was the Best Year and froze everything there. You know how every bar now is Edison bulbs and reclaimed wood? NOT THE W! The bar there is all hard white surfaces and blinking LEDs and trance music. It looks EXACTLY like the last dot-com crash. Since this party sounds like it was airlifted out of 1999, it was a perfect venue choice.
Anyway, the article goes on and on and gets more unbelievable as it goes but don't take my word for it, read it yourself. Disrupt.
UPDATE: Sam Biddle also writes about this event for Valleywag, and makes a lot of the same points I did, but with pictures and more research.
