Suggestive, sultry, ripe with innuendo-that's how we'd describe the invitation we just got to Tao's 10-year anniversary bash set for tomorrow night. Strategic Group is well known for their elaborate invitations, and, this red Chinese takeout box is no exception. See what was inside, below...
Inside the red box holding the invitation was the inevitable gold-lettered palaver of rub-n-tug promises: "ALWAYS A HAPPY ENDING" and "LOVE YOU LONG TIME." But it was what was on the inside that really got us going..
The inside, decorated with the images of incandescent votive candles, contains a folded-up cardboard stream of fortune-cookie messages that act as enticements and adages.
A select list of the highlights to titillate you heading into the weekend:
"Let's get naked & dance."
"You will get a good response from someone you put your hands on."
"Hold onto your secrets but release your inhibitions."
"Let your body be your playground."
"Those who say ‘yes’ have more fun."
"The year ahead promises to find you in many interesting positions."
"Someone is thinking kinky thoughts of you."
"If you got some action last night, smile."
"Sex without love is an empty experience, but as empty experiences go, it's one of the best."
"A man loses direction after 4 drinks: a woman loses hers after 4 kisses."
"You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first."
The valediction comes with a pithy "Love, Buddha…"
We support the spirit behind the invitation, as gimmicky as the realization may be. DJ Ross One will be spinning as people dance and follow such inspirational messages under the restaurant's 16-foot golden Buddha statue.
However, if the party turns out to be as sexy as the invitation, count us in!
