Alas, twas not me.
Here is a report:
TheRadioRahimShow catches up with DOE Deputy Chancellor Marc Sternberg at a happy hour he hosted on Friday, July 22, 2011, to "honor this important moment for New York City's public school families! Please forward - all are welcome!"
We made ourselves welcome, and asked Mr. Sternberg why he thinks closing 22 struggling public schools and squeezing charter schools into 15 more is a cause to celebrate.

This item pulled me out of my funk over my operation on Tuesday for my severely broken wrist. Wish I could go and tape. Hope somebody does. I find Sternberg one of the typically arrogant Tweed POS. Has real John White potential. Find your favorite Tweedie on the recipient list:
This came in from Leonie:
Marc Sternberg and company celebrating their court victory tonight over the thousands of NYC parents, teachers and students who begged them not to close their schools and/or squeeze their students out through damaging charter-co-locations.
He phrases it as "an important moment for New York City's public school families! Please forward - all are welcome!" But it was instead an important moment for arrogant and heedless Tweed educrats.
Apparently Tribeca Tavern is the venue, at 5 PM at 247 West Broadway, in case others want to go and share in the merriment.

New York Supreme Court Justice Paul Feinman denied the UFT and NAACP's request for a preliminary injunction preventing the Department of Education from moving forward to close 22 failing schools and co-locate 15 public charter schools in DOE buildings. The judge's ruling allows the DOE to move forward with the closings and co-locations.
Come join us for a drink to honor this important moment for New York City's public school families! Please forward - all are welcome!
