Sundance Parties, The Bing List and Going Home

Just before Sundance started last Thursday I received a gift in my Inbox. Some might consider the Bing List the Holy Grail of partydom. When I saw it right there on my screen I felt instant Nirvana.

Paris Hilton walked in front of my car near Deer Valley's Snow Park Lodge. Read More
