Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

Daniel Craig makes his debut as the sixth James Bond in "Casino Royale," and reviews of the film have been glowing so far. While we haven't seen it yet, that won't stop us from getting dressed up and heading over to the "Casino Royale" Afterparty at Leftbank on Friday night. Sponsored by Smirnoff Vodka -- an "official partner" of the James Bond films -- this is the latest in a series of Bond-themed events sponsored by the promoters at Party Slave. Previous soirees have featured men in tuxedos and women in evening dresses; women painted gold from head to toe a la "Goldfinger"; and bartenders cranking out "shaken, not stirred" martinis. (What else do you expect at a Bond party?) This one should be much the same: There's no cover charge when you RSVP, an open Smirnoff bar between 9 and 11 and a "Best Bond" and "Best Bond Girl" contest. Winners get a private table and a bottle of alcohol, while runners-up take home anything from passes to the Spy Museum to free drinks. Get on the list at

This is just one of the events featured in our jam-packed Nightlife Agenda column, which covers the best live music, happy hours, DJs and pre-Thanksgiving parties.

There were several complaints that LeftBank treated the event like a nightclub, not like a premier event were invitations mattered. Many on the guest list were turned away by the doormen, who exercised their overly-discerning eye. The RSVP web site to get on the guest list in this venue meant nothing; LeftBank's doormen decided who got in.
