A couple of ad events are fast approaching. Tomorrow night, Feb. 10, at Gotham Hall in New York, the VCU AdCenter will present AdChemistry, the follow-up to last year's Joe Pytka roast, which -- this time around -- will feature Steve Hayden talking about Lee Clow, Andy Berlin telling tales on Jeff Goodby, and David Kennedy dishing the dirt about Dan Wieden. This event, you may recall, was originally set for November, but had to be rescheduled. We understand tickets are still available at the AdChemistry site
Meanwhile, the London-based Viral Awards come to New York next Tuesday, presented by The Now Corporation at The Chelsea Art Museum. In addition to worldwide winners, the winner of the North American Viral category -- as judged by a jury that (full disclosure) included AdCritic editor Jim Hanas -- will be announced. Proceeds go to the Food Bank of New York and tickets are available at The Now Corporation's website.
