Tweet Round-up

Lobsterfeed! Cheese and bread are perfect wine tasting party snacks. Soak up all that wine in your belly with some really good french bread. It’s hard to remember, but hold the wine by the little stem. Fingerprints and hot, sticky hands help to change your perfect wines. Smokey eye tutorial at my local Mary […]

Party People: Rick Webb

Rick Webb is an internet legend. (Trust me, I know my legends. He’s up there.) He’s co-founder of the barbarian group, the kind of interactive agency that makes magic out of the internet. (Literally!

Tweets from this week.

Heck yes, Earth, Wind & Fire Pandora Station. Always appropriate. @MelissaSummers The shoefree people are pretty adamant. But I have to say, if you’re throwing a party in your home, please allow shoes. @daisysf Aye, non-shoewearing homes.
