Wining and dining the bloggers

How important are bloggers to promoting the success of Downtown developments? Pretty important, based on this invitation by AEG for the Ritz-Carlton condos to be built as part of L.A. Live. Free food and drinks, a promise of exclusive "news," and a "special VIP gift" to make them feel loved:
