Created to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of The Choice, this blog was supposed to chronicle the party’s history and host mixes from the party. Unfortunately there are only four posts on the blog, two about the party’s history and two mixes. The two posts about the party details the first few parties at the original location on 2nd Street between Bowery and Second Avenue and the circumstances which forced Vasquez to move the party to the space in which David Mancuso held The Loft on 3rd Street between Avenues C and D after the floor started to collapse during a party.
