“Partying like it’s 1999”! (Was it actually like this in 1999?)
Some Web start-ups are partying like it’s 1999. Airbnb’s housewarming later this month is to include a visit by rapper and occasional tech investor M.C. Hammer. The party room at reviews site Yelp Inc. has three beer kegs with built-in iPads to offer information about what’s on tap. Last month, start-ups Peanut Labs Inc. and AdParlor Inc. sponsored the sold-out “Pirates of Silicon Valley Cruise,” a $600-per-person seafaring party.
This stuff all sounds cool, but hey, I’m just happy I can wear casual clothes to work and occasionally get taken out to a free lunch. It’s all good!
