Longtime Billboard pal Melinda is in town from Los Angeles this week and gathered fellow former colleagues Michael, Terri & meese for dinner tonight. The joint: cute Elephant and Castle on Greenwich Avenue off Seventh Avenue in the West Village. Nope, we didn't sit and mope over the "good ole days." Four pros who have all taken forward steps beyond what was indeed a glorious era... that truthfully doesn't exist anymore. Always makes me happy when friends from the past focus on the future.
