Back in the day, when we were all heathens in our early 20s trying to find ourselves in the booze-fueled world of downtown New York, a place many of us would end up was Club Chrissie. In a documentary about this venue, which was technically Chrissie Miller’s apartment on Second Avenue, I referred to it as, “The den of cigarette smoke and bad decision making.” We’re all older now, and while whether or not we’ve found each other is up for grabs we are still very nostalgic about the life bonding experiences that went down at Club Chrissie. (Fun fact: When Chrissie moved out to be with her wonderful boyfriend, the artist Leo Fitzpatrick, members of the band The Virgins moved in.) So was Chrissie herself, apparently. She recently launched a webisode series of the same name on Pharrell’s web station, I Am Other, and has since welcomed guests like Drea de Matteo, Charlotte Ronson, Pamela Love, Mickey Boardman, her mother Susan Miller and Pharrell himself. But for her most recent episode, which is appropriately enough a holiday episode, she had me over and our buddy Nicky Hilton. We made some holiday greeting cards inspired by Instagram, talked about Nicky’s favorite app Trendabl, and then did some of my own Derek Blasberg for Opening Ceremony holiday cards. We then had a surprise cameo from French Andre and Cory Kennedy. Not a bad night for Club Chrissie.
