Today in: Famous Friends I'm Proud Of And Can Say I Knew Them When...

Our good friend Tyler, one of Jeff's friends from White Bear Lake, MN, is one of the 17 Coolest Dads in NYC according to Refinery29:

"Tyler Thoreson, Head of Men's Creative and Editorial, Gilt Groupe, with wife, Allissa, daughter, Lucia, and son, Oscar.

"I'm a very lucky guy. I have a wonderful wife, two amazing kids (with another on the way!), several nice pairs of shoes—pretty much everything a guy could ask for. And yet...there's something missing. That something is a 1960s-era IWC dress watch. They're understated, elegant, classy as hell, and—or so my rationalization goes—an investment you can wear. On the off chance my wife (or anyone else who'd like to buy me a watch) is reading this, I recommend scanning for notable auctions, or Gilt MAN, where Ben Clymer regularly curates sales of amazing vintage watches."

And on Friday, our friend Kaili, a Daily Kos Editor, (who we shared a delicious dinner at Heidi's with last weekend) interviewed White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer right here in Minneapolis at the 6th Annual Netroots Nation Convention.
