Tasting “Fashion Week Kickoff Party from 404 NYC & Entire Magazine”
Thursday September 4th, 2014
We’ve been to the 404 before so you can read about our initial thoughts on the space HERE.
Considering the space was so large I was a little surprised that the place seemed a little……empty? Well maybe not that extreme but I figured they would have invited more people considering the size of the venue. Oh well. I guess more room to move around.
In terms of the runway show itself I saw some cool ensembles from Bradley-Douglas Jordan and Oscar Uiterre but I’m not really one to judge in terms of what’s actually acceptable in the fashion community. I enjoyed the glitzed up head gear some of the models were wearing and even the gem masked were very eye catching but probably a little difficult to walk around in. My big criticism with these runway shows is that sometimes you can’t really see what the models are wearing when they simply whiz on by. But it could have also been my seating :/

Tasting “Christian Siriano Fragrance Launch”
Wednesday September 3rd, 2014
402 W 13th Street
Wow, what were they thinking when they picked the location??? I guess people just really loved free drinks or were really curious about Christian’s new scent. I think I soon as we walked through the doors we were immediately hit with a heat that was just building up from lack of air conditioning and the small space. Everyone was very noticeably sweating their makeup off and huddling next the the tiny AC units scattered throughout. To say “swap ass” was in the air would have been an understatement….
Christian did show up towards the end and snapped pictures with his fans but I think even he realized how hot as balls it was in there and skedaddled as soon as the opportunity arose.

Tasting “G Shock S Series Preview” @ Milk Studios
Thursday July 31st, 2014
Stopped by for a Nibble. You can usually never go wrong with a party from Milk so we were pretty eager to come. The party was actually on the top floor of the building so the location change was an interesting surprise.
Oddly enough it seemed like this event was very sparse on the guest list as the place hardly seemed filled at the height of the evening. The hors d’oeuvres they were serving were also extremely questionable in terms of combinations: watermelon and goat cheese??? Sorry but bleh….
At least the watches looked pretty cool. Oh and you can never go wrong with May Kwok spinning tunes.

Stopped by for a Nibble. Haus had some really cool visualls accompanying really good dance music on a Tuesday night. Random images of nature to clips of anime lit up the DJs back throughout the night courtesy of Ben Moon. Unfortunately being a Tuesday meant the dance floor was pretty barren minus the older women dancing all by herself. It was adorable but also kind of sad.
Loved the layout of the place as you had your upper tier bottle service crowd slightly overlooking the drunkenly dancing divas below. I’m not sure about how well the cocktails were made but $9 for a beer was definitely ridiculous.

Tasting “Living New York” Conversation @ W Hotel Times Square
Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Stopped by for a Nibble. While I’m not usually a fan these speaking roundtables as they usually just turn into a bunch of people complaining about something or other, tonight had a few highlights. Mainly from Paul Haggis, director of Crash, making snarky remarks and saying the awesome line -
"What I really love about New York is it’s so fucking dirty."
Amen Paul. I really wanted to hear more from Prabal Gurung as he seemed to be further displaced from the other guests but he was drowned out so constantly I think he gave up :/
The venue itself was very nice and intimate and I could image bringing a date her for cocktails after work. Couches, low lighting, and low music would definitely make for easy conversation.

Tasting “Cosmo Summer Fun” Event @ Hudson Terrace
Monday July 28th, 2014
Stopped by for a Nibble. A pretty cool event we unfortunately arrived too fashionably late for. The flavored cocktails definitely kept us in good spirits as we goofed off at the GIF photo booth and eventually got our hair colored. Yes it was super fabulous.
We’ve been Hudson Terrace before but this time we were surprised not to be on the rooftop but somewhere in between. They had a small outdoor patio that felt like someone’s backyard deck. It was nice and relaxing but just extremely windy. Tasty party. Also got a swag bag full of products I’m not sure I’ll ever use but thanks regardless :p
