The Party: Dean Bein's 27th Birthday PartyShare This:
Location: Apartment in Fort Greene, BrooklynTotal Party Count: 68
Dean Bein is 27! But I remember when he was a mere 26, trying to make it in the big city with his record label,
Mighty Duck Records True Panther Sounds, with a roster of bands that almost nobody ever heard of. And then one night he came home from a business dinner wearing finely pressed pants and a nice belt he borrowed from his roommate who had parties in the apartment every night (that's why I was there), and the normally incredibly cool Dean just stood there in shock-- I looked at his hands and he was trembling. He had just been told that Beggars / Matador Records wanted to pick up his label. Brooklyn Vegan broke the news 7 months later so I guess he wasn't lying. Not a bad year.
Anyway, about the party. It ruled. Alex from Lemonade is officially a gifted, dutiful party chef-- I recommend him for your next simcha. He made amazing burritos and/but he will passionately relay to you just how organic the burrito goat is and how he wishes he could have seen that goat being raised on the special organic farm. Also I am going to advise party hosts Jesse & Dean to check the batteries in their smoke detector because we probably all should have stopped-dropped-and-rolled out of there, but I'm glad we kept partying!!!
Alex & Dean. Keep Cookin!
I got confused and actually meant thumbs down. Sierra Nevada's "Celebration Ale" is nothing to be celebrated.
