Hosts Jason Diamond and Ryan Chapman are excited to announce the third installment of the Mingle, New York’s premiere media blowout, happening Thursday, July 25th at the Tribeca Grand. Presented by Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Electric Literature and Flavorpill, The Mingle will offer guests good times, sweet tunes and free summer cocktails courtesy of Atavist Books.
We weren’t totally expecting the 1000+ RSVPs, the hundreds of people through the door, and the long lines to get in to the last installment of The Mingle held last March, but apparently a whole lot of people were really were “super-psyched to get drunk and talk shop without having to first sit through a reading or awkwardly decline to buy a book afterward,” as The New York Observer put it.
Because the last Mingle was such a success, any reprise would need to be bigger and better, which is why Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Electric Literature, and Flavorpill are coming together for a party of epic proportions that brings together all the writers, editors, publishers, freelancers, full timers, freelancers that want to be full-timers, novelists, journalists, bloggers, start-up people, and all their friends (and future friends) from the worlds of publishing, new media, old media, and any other type of media you can think up.
With a much bigger space, balloons (!), a night full of nasty dance anthems DJd by the party’s creators and hosts, Jason Diamond and Ryan Chapman, plus a few more surprises, this will be the biggest and best Mingle yet.
