Afar Launches with a Party -- a far, far away

The New York Times is all agog that there is actually a launch party for a magazine in these bad economic times. In this case, the new periodical is a pretty cool-looking "experiential" travel magazine called Afar. The Times spends way too much time telling us what food was at the party, and not nearly enough about the magazine, its prospects, or its team.

Anywho. The magazine does sound very interesting. I just wish I could find it at a local bookstore or magazine shop. So far, nada.

John: Afar is not officially due to hit the newsstands until August 18, though we have spotted it at selected sites around Manhattan. We hear reports that many home subscribers have already received their copies.
