Early photos from Prom Night...err, I mean the JJB

It kinda felt like prom night...everyone was dressed so nice! Here's some early pictures from the event:

Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy and your favorite blogger.

I have to say, by the end of the evening I was starting to feel a little insulted by so many people telling me how "nicely you clean up!" Like I look like a frickin' bum most of the time...

Well, they may be right...

CGG, Genghis Conn, Kim Hynes, CT Blogger and Gabe representing CTLP and MLN quite nicely.

Himes & Hynes (4th CD candidate Jim Himes, Kim Hynes)

Nattily dressed Branford Boy and glamorous Maura look like they're attending the Academy Awards rather than the JJB dinner.

Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz and me. I had to bend my knees to be in the frame with her.

Late tomorrow I'll have some of my many video interviews online, including a quick moment between U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and myself (hint: she knows who I am now).

I am wondering how much a ticket to this event cost?

CT Bob said...

$175 each, up to $2000 if you want to party with the bigwigs.

Or free, if you have connections! :)

Maura said...

Those are some fantastic photos!!!

I had a really great time last night. I missed having a designated after-party location for all the bloggers, though -- I wish we all could have spent more time together!

CT Bob said...

Thanks Maura!

I happened to be riding with the designated old farts, so I had to leave right after it ended.

Of course, by the time we hid Meriden, I think I might have been snoring and dreaming of faraway lands. So it's probably for the best I went right home and went beddy-bye!

Oh God! That's it Bob is one of them on the "inside". It's only a matter of time before he's having his palms greased to write nice things. Queue the cream puff interviews... :)

CT Bob said...

LOL! Everybody, get in line! I prefer my palms greased in an orderly fashion! Anybody who behaves poorly or otherwise displeases me will be forced to go to the end of the line!

Ola Bob.
These old farts had to leave on the 6:05 am train to NYC. Then back again to CT to attend a fundraiser for Beth-El Shelter in Milford. The emcee was Barber of former Smith & Barber who managed to insult recycled paper, Rosa DeLauro (who was not present but sent a letter of support), Nancy "Hello Connecticut Bob" Pelosi having a jet, and Democrats in general.

This was at a fundraiser for Homeless and Hungry people GDammit!

Now these old farts are in LA. Catch me if you can.

Incidentally, Amann was not at the JBB because he forgot to tell his wife of the event, and she booked them at an event for organ donation. Odd, since Amann had a table for $750pp. I'm jest sayin'....

CT Bob said...

Organ donation?

What, his brain?

LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!

Be nice.

Amann's wife Teri had a kidney transplant several years ago.
