Jeff Stein Celebrates His Birthday, Free Of April Fool's Day Pranks

Jeff Stein[all photos by Patrick McMullan for PMc] Jeff Stein celebrated his birthday with a two-parter on April 1st: first a dinner at East Side Social club, and then a party at Boom Boom Room. Safe to say he didn't have time for an April Fool's prank.-

Little known fact (or not so little if you're savvy on the net and imdb): Stein directed music videos for Carly Simon, Billy Idol, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. Pretty hot, right? Do you think any of them called him on his birthday? Can. You. Imagine? "Oh, excuse me, it's Bruce. Can you keep my candle going a little longer? I should take this." Surely that would throw Brittan Youngblood (who wins the "most awesome name ever" award), Claire Darrow, and even Patrick McMullan for a little bit of a loop. It sure would send us spinning.
