On this the 12th day of the 12th month of the 12th year of the first century of the second millennium, the Vergecasters decide to take a break from their tiny midtown studio and venture out to meet the people — the people, who up to this point have only been able to listen to / watch The Vergecast through the magic of the Internet from the comfort of their own homes. They have traveled from near and far to celebrate the holidays and to meet the minds behind their favorite tech site... okay, they probably just came for the free booze, but anyways, it was a magical night that will not be forgotten for at least a few days.

On this week's Vergecast Josh, Nilay, and Paul broadcast live from The Verge's holiday party at the Angel Orensanz center in Manhattan's Lower East Side to look back on the past year in technology culture and, of course, culture culture.
