More than 150 people braved the rain last night to attend D CEO magazine’s quarterly happy hour event at Vapiano, a sleek new eatery in Mockingbird Station. But the evening’s real action was across the street, where a long line of people snaked around Urban Outfitters aiming to see actress Drew Barrymore, in town to flog a new roller-derby flick called Whip It. According to several people who waited patiently for Barrymore, however, the “meet and greet” turned into something of a fiasco. Reports one:
Drew showed up 1 hour late, spent 1 hour with press, a few minutes with
contest winners and then the rest of us, who had wristbands and [had] been
standing for 5 hours in the rain, were told they’re running behind and we
can leave now. She didn’t sign any autographs for us! So, thank you Moroch
Entertainment and Fox Searchlight and thanks Drew, for having my wife, me
and my 3 year old stand in the rain for 5 hours. We now know what you think
of your fans.
