iPOP at the "Super Size Me" Premiere & the "Get Slossed" Party

by Eugene Hernandez/indieWIRE

Last week, as spring weather arrived in earnest in New York, local film types gathered on two consecutive nights to party and network. Over at Lotus on Tuesday, guests toasted the NY premiere of Morgan Spurlock's hot doc, "Super Size Me," while on the following night it was time to "Get Slossed" at the 10 year anniversary party for Sloss Law Office at the Half King Bar in Chelsea. Of course, indieWIRE was on the scene to soak up at the socializing.

After the stomach-churning screening of the film, some guests had no problem setting in for some party food, including yummy POP burgers and a veggie platter.

Douglas Crapo and Levi Elder from the film's distributor IDP, hang out with Tom Quinn, head of acquisitions at Magnolia Pictures. (Quinn, a former acquisitions exec from Samuel Goldwyn, pinpointed the film for Goldwyn at Sundance earlier this year).
