Tasting “Tapas & Tattoos” @ Lilium

Stopped by here for a NibbleWe’ve been to Lilium before so any qualms we’ve had with the place you can check out here.  

Tonight was more of an event so it didn’t seem as crowded as last outing and the place was a lot more reasonably well lit.  Of course the bar was hounded but that could be from all the free drinks they were serving.

Music by DJ DKDS was really good and played some nice instrumental tracks that still had my head bobbing.  I can’t believe he played Rack City Bitch though.  What is it with this place and that song??

The focal point of the evening though was to choose one of two tattoos for Sergi to get inked.  I’m not sure if I would let decisions like that be made from totals strangers and social media but I guess it’s what’s happening now.

Dam I still love the video behind the bar of the girls licking random substances off of glass.  Can I get that somewhere as a screen saver please?

Tasting “Sons of Essex”

Stopped by here for a Nibble.  Sons of Essex has an interesting look to it because on one hand, it feels like you’re hanging out in your grandparent’s parlor, but then you look up and you realize you’re in the bellows of a pirate ship. A little disorienting, but kind of cool at the same time.  Ultimately, it made me feel like I just shouldn’t look up.

The place is literally, just covered in wood without it being a total sausage fest. Zing. The area in the back, lounge if you will, was a nice touch and the DJ booth was set up back here.  I guess if there was going to be a dance party it would be here.  Unless they clean out all those pesky tables and kick out all the other dining patrons of course :p 

I have to say DJ Rose played an awesome set for an early Wednesday night.  I mean I’ll love any DJ that plays Phantomgram but it was great to see her dancing and genuinely enjoying what she was spinning.  Better keep an eye on her.

On a random note, some drunken hipster started talking to me while I was doing my business at a urinal.  He started going on about how they removed a picture of Teddy Roosevelt (I think) from the bathroom and how he demanded they put it back up.  I tried to be as courteous as one could be while pissing into some porcelain but boy was I glad he started banging on the stall door and telling his friend the exact same thing.

I never had a chance to visit The Double Seven before it closed but recently we swung by Bar Nana, which took it’s place.  Monday nights are touted as having an intimate musical performance so we decided to check it out.

Tasting “Frank Thiel’s Exhibition ‘Nowhere is a Place’” @ Sean Kelly Gallery

Stopped by here for a Nibble.  The extremely long walk was worth it to check out Frank Thiel’s beautiful images of these baby blue glaciers.  Absolut was sponsoring the event so drinks were graciously (and also very deliciously) on them.  Thanks god for all the scattered bowls of popcorn and pretzels too because we skipped dinner to check this place out.

Melo-X came on to perform and mixed some really good beats while also rapping over them at the same time.  With an event like this it was understandable that people stood around and watched but you there were a few choice individuals making a ruckus and professing their love for the music.  It was kind of funny to see who was there for the exhibit and who was there to see Melo-X.  Because it was pretty visually obvious.

The gallery surprisingly started filling up with more people as the night became later.  Kudos to a good word of mouth for this party.

Tasting “Heavenly Saturdays” @ Wyndham Garden Chinatown

image

Stopped by here for a Nibble.  It’s not too often you get a rooftop view of the city from Chinatown (unless you’re SOAKED) so I decided to stop by.  Obviously my crappy cell phone pics aren’t exactly painting the clearest of pictures but it was a nice change to see the city lights and buildings from the southern perspective.  The penthouse bar was very small and cozy and didn’t seem like too many people would be there tonight.

With that being said, it’s a shame the music was blaring loudly as if the place was packed because everyone was basically just sitting around having conversation.  It’s not that the music was bad, it’s just that it seemed more like a casual lounge than a dance party.  I’d definitely come back though if I were hanging around Chinatown late at night but unless word of mouth gets spread, I’m thinking you’ll most likely see a barren dance floor.

Tasting “La Chasse | The Hunt Launch Party” @ Mr H

image

Stopped by here for a Nibble.  When we arrived here we felt slightly out of place as the crowd seemed to consist of mostly females maybe in their late 20s to late 30s.  Yes we were invited but I couldn’t help but feel we were at the wrong type of event.  It was a shame that the dance floor was also pretty barren.

 image

 Suddenly at one point in the night, 2 people began a pillow fight and gold graffiti exploded all around the fight area.

Wish they made an announce about this though because it looked like a lot of fun actually and it might have elevated the event to more than casual chit chat.  Sadly it was over just as quick as it began and the floor was covered with the golden mess.
