Tasting “Find Your Fortune” Presented by Playboy and Miller @ Up&Down

Tuesday June 17th, 2013

Hosted by: Playboy and Miller Beer

Music provided by: Chelsea Leyland and music performance from Ludwig and Steigler 

Considering we somewhat got rejected from Up&Down before, I wasn’t sure if we would ever get around to making a second attempt.  I guess when you hear Playboy is throwing an event though, how could we pass?

* Taste the rainbow?

Taste With Your Eyes : “The Obstacle Is The Way” Celebration @ McCarren Hotel Rooftop 

Stopped by for a Nibble.  In a very rare occurrence, we decided to stop by a venue in Brooklyn for this book event.  The rooftop space was small but perfectly sized for this intimate gathering.  The layout was perfect and could definitely be a nice little dance spot for summer parties.  Just wouldn’t want to be here if things got too packed.  Strangely felt as if the glass encasing wouldn’t stand up to a lot of pressure…

The author of the book kept his speech short and sweet and the partied continued on as everyone devoured sliders and sipped on tequila cocktails.  There was an interesting alternative view of the Manhattan skyline since we were in Brooklyn.  Oddly enough however, you also got a view of an enormous abandoned parking lot right across the street.

Taste With Your Eyes : Sonny’s Soda Shop Rooftop Cocktail Bar & Gelateria

Sadly it was a little drizzly and foggy this evening but you can’t beat a rooftop view from Chinatown.  It’s a nice interesting angle you don’t see too often.  Gelato cocktails were incredibly strong so you had to wait for them to melt.  The inside was very cozy and easy to manage around but outside was a packed house and the wait on line for the bathroom meant listening to people complain about waiting for the bathroom.  Hard to say if I like this new iteration more than “SOAKED" but maybe it was because the latter was during the day.

Taste With Your Eyes : The Luxury Review @ The Altman Building

Definitely enjoyed the event more from two years ago as the space was larger and the crowd was a lot younger.  Too many cougars and suits were aimlessly walking around this time around :/

Taste With Your Eyes : Hornblower Cruises and Events Kickoff @ Pier 15

If you’ve been on one boat cruise you could easily say you’ve been on them all.  The nice thing about this one however was it wasn’t some old sea captain’s vessel and legitimately felt like a brand new pair of sea legs.  Everything was white, polished, and glass.  Just like I like my ice cream.

In terms of doing things differently there’s only so many distractions you can cram onto a ship.  So yes, they had the live band, open bar, food, and views of the city we all know and love.  But something about swaying on the waters and looking at the sunset always makes me feel like a hopeless romantic.  Sadly the crowd steered a little older this evening so my best bet would have been the boat sinking and a beautiful red head resurrecting me from my watery grave with her amazing voice ;)

I did offer lady liberty a drink when she came into view though.  Her stone cold silence reminds me of my mom.

Oh and Nick Lachey randomly appeared towards the end of the trip.  Did that guy just swim on board??

Taste With Your Eyes : The Second Annual Concierge Cocktail Party @ Lavo

Stopped by for a Nibble which also happened to be Cinco de Mayo as well.  We’ve been to Lavo before HERE and HERE and the place still feels classy every time we come.  The doorman stopped me and asked why he knew me.  I said I’ve only been there a handful of times and he remarked that was probably why.  

Sure passing out sombreros and maracas seemed a little too obvious but you can’t help but get caught up in it.  I can’t remember why they brought out cheerleaders but sure why not :p
