You had to be there, even if it wasn’t there.

In a fun bit on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert Tuesday, Arianna Huffington (the co-founder of The Huffington Post) and actor William H. Macy recount the heyday of a fictional club called Bubble.

Bubble pumped out toxic foam while hosting a “who’s who of New York’s cultural elite.”

“It was a place for intellectuals to gather,” Huffington said. “In the same night you could have a drink with Gore Vidal, argue with Norman Mailer, then help resuscitate Mr. T.” 

Her account of what went on behind the velvet ropes was a bit more detailed than that of Macy’s, who said, “Yeah, I was there. Not that I remember.”
