Sundance Diary: The ultimate fly on the wall

Posted on

The EW Photo Studio is wrapping up today, with only a few shoots left before this crazytown comes to an end. It’s not an overstatement to say our headquarters has been the most exciting place on Main Street, and there’s one man who saw it all — from Access Hollywood interviews to crabby entourages to the sleepy EW staff’s desperate attempts to nap in the Netflix beanbags: our bartender, Corey. Who needs famous guest bloggers? This guy can type, and he makes a killer bloody mary.

“Hello everybody, this is Corey Baca the bartender for the EW.com photo shoot/hub for all the celebs to hang out at. I’ve seen just about everybody that’s made it up to Park City for Sundance and I’ll have to say I’ve got more than I bargained for. I was a bit saddened Mandy Moore didn’t remember me from her MTV show ages ago in Key West where I got to talk about why men don’t like to talk on the phone, but I got over it. Some of the big names I was syked to see up here were Cheryl Hines from Curb Your Enthusiasm, Justin Timberlake, Christina Ricci, Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon, and of course Heather Graham. This has been an amazing experience and I think everyone should make it up to Sundance at least once in their life, even if you have to row a boat across the Atlantic. The only thing I have a problem with is there aren’t enough drinkers, I guess all the partying is going on into the crazy hours of the morning. Let’s just say I’ve got the same bottle of Absolut that I started with on day one. I hope to make it up here next year for another awesome time, oh and people at EW kick tail!”

So do you, Corey. So do you. Now fix mommy her special drink.
