Last Friday night, the World of Wonder gang had its bangin’ Christmas office party at Jimmy’s on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, made more festive by an especially diverse and shiny bunch of guests and a special performance by the girls of the Dreamgirls Revue. Must have been 300 of us getting hot and drunk to the spintastic table stylings of Drew Forni. It’s Monday and some of our colleagues still haven’t made it back to the office. Take a look at the following (partial) cast of characters. No, really, look at them, dammit; it took all day to post the pictures. Full list of names follows. If you’re not sure who everyone is, some of them are Googleable.
