    We’ve made it! Internet Week NY officially kicked off yesterday with a week long program of speakers, panels and cocktail parties. For all the geeks, startup enthusiasts and media elite in New York City, hope you rested up this weekend because it’s time to burn the candles at both ends and celebrate all that is good and holy about the Internet.

    And what’s even more exciting? We’re just one day away from the big event: The 4th annual ‘Unruly’ Webutante Ball. Founded by Gawker TV head turned Thrillist managing editor, Richard Blakeley, “The Prom for Geeks” has gained national attention for its superstar guest list, including founders and CEOs of the trendiest New York tech companies, a slew of hotshot venture capitalists, television personalities and Manhattan’s media moguls (not to mention every hipster reporter from Brooklyn).

    As of yesterday, The Webutante Ball is OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT. But we’ve got 2 tickets left for one lucky winner! Simply go to our Facebook page and enter to win tickets until Midnight EST tonight.

    For 3 sad seasons with legitimate reasons (travel, boyfriend’s birthday and Les Claypool concert), I’ve personally been unable to attend the event, which is whyI’m triply excited to say that this year’s event will be brought to you in partnership with The Next Web and Unruly Media with beverages provided by Brugal Rum, The Macallan and Tiger Beer. The TNW crew will be there in full form, prom dresses (mine is purple and from the 80s!), neck ties, feather boas and possibly glow sticks for good measure. Find us on the red carpet for an interview!

    The event takes place tomorrow, Wednesday, May 16th from 8pm to midnight at Marquee in Chelsea. The event is officially sold out but you can win your tickets below!
