Some of us may still have hangovers from Tuesday night’s Miss KL launch party in NYC, due to either the delish Hennessy drinks (how can I resist a libation name The Sassy?) or the sad feelings of knowing legendary Wanda Jackson’s standout performance ended days ago. We were so thankful to see friends and supporters fete our latest venture! I think it’s fair to say a good time was had by all — or so our photobooth snaps seem to indicate. Starting off with an intimate dinner at Sons of Essex in the Lower East Side, guests squealed over the killer goodie bags while yummy truffle-infused dishes were chased by many, many glasses of vino. A few words from bossman Greg rounded out the occasion, and everyone proceeded to The Box for our main event, dodging many puddles en route.
Upon walking into The Box you know this is a place of beautiful decay, with Johnny Depp look-a-likes behind the bar, girls in charming circus garb, and dancers suspended from the ceiling. There is a sense that maybe you time traveled, until you look around and notice all the pretty people wearing clothes that are undoubtedly the trendiest around. Crooner Wanda Jackson was the hallmark of the festivities, with enough spunk and spirit to keep the attention of several hundred boozed up 20-somethings. Radio Rose followed with a DJ set that kept us dancing until we made our exit.
