“How I Met Your Mother” tubthumps in Gotham

Himymonstreet_2The “How I Met Your Mother mob went to Gotham earlier this week to host a special event for Academy of Television Arts and Sciences members (read: Emmy voters) at the bar that inspired the fictional watering hole MacLaren’s on the New York-set CBS comedy.

“HIMYM” creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays hung out at McGee’s Bar and Grill during their early days as staff scribes on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

On Tuesday Thomas, Bays and four out of five “HIMYM” core cast members — Cobe Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan and Josh Radnor (Jason Segal was off shooting a pic) — gathered at McGee’s for a screening and Q&A sesh, moderated by the astute Alan Sepinwall of the New Jersey Star-Ledger. Also in the house were “HIMYM” exec producer-helmer Pam Fryman and Dana Walden, chairman of “HIMYM” studio 20th Century Fox TV chairman. Event and afterparty were SRO with more than 200 attendees, according to reliable sources.
