Last night, Twilight Fans from all over New York City gathered at the Best Buy on Union Square at Midnight to meet Peter Facinelli (who plays Dr. Carlisle) and purchase their “New Moon” DVD. Originally, some fans had thought that Facinelli would be appearing at Borders Books on the Upper West Side, but at 7:53pm last night he tweeted to his 1.5million plus followers that he would be appearing at Best Buy: “I’ll b @ NM DVD RELEASE PARTY 2night @Best Buy by Union Square 52E.14st NY doors open @midnight. 1st 75 people get a special treat:).”
Fans got to chat with Facinelli and take photos with him. He also signed copies of the “New Moon” DVD! According to fans, it was a pretty laid back environment. This is what one Twifan, named Patty Ridout, had to say about the event on her fb page: “Went to the Borders midnight DVD release party for New Moon, had a fun time. But my friends and I ran over to Best Buy on 14th street after we got our videos, met Peter Facinelli who is a sweetheart. And Melissa got him to send a shout-out to Rosemarie Scilipoti who couldn’t be there with us. Peter rocks!”
As he was pulling out in his car he was even gracious enough to give one of his fans who couldn’t be there a shout out. The video, which was filmed by Melissa has been posted on her youtube account (http://www.youtube.com/user/sexiitwilight). She also has some great videos from “The Runaways” After-party and of Robert Pattinson. Enjoy!
