Tah Dah! We made it through another fashion week (barely). Go HERE for every single one of our NYC Spring '09 Fashion Week-related post! [NYC Fashion Week]

And, even with the fashionistas taking up loads of our time, we managed to get in a site redesign, unveiling a whole new look courtesy of Andrew Hearst and full of new features like photo commenting!

We unveiled the official list of the Top 100 Clubs in the U.S. in 2008 [Top Clubs 2008]

We spent time with Giorgio Armani and some of his closest friends (ahem Caroline Kennedy) at the opening of his 5th Avenue Flagship store. [Armani Opens on Fifth]

There was a new relationship brewing in town and we were there every step of the way of this heated love affair.  We also managed to get in some "Hammer Time", a meet up with the star of our own childhood love affair. [Interview with MC Hammer]

Ben Harper was in town with a new band. [Ben Harper and "Relentless 7"]

We dined with our favorite club kids at the Diesel Planet store uptown.  The largest Diesel store in the world opened on Tuesday with a grand old celebration. [Diesel Planet]

We went back to our nostalgic collegiate days first by profiling Princeton's Ivy, and later, by checking in on those crazy protesting kids at NYU and the blogger that got a lot of press for sticking it out with them.

Le Baron took a break from Paris and it's short stay at the Bowery Hotel kept loads of our cities hippest partygoers happy.  We were there to help DJ Sevigny do our best to welcome Andre Saraiva to our beautiful city. [Le Baron Party]

Later, we went back to the Bowery to help guests like Kirsten Dunst, Erin Wasson, Mary Kate Olsen, and others celebrate "The Smile." [The Smile Party at Bowery Hotel]

We are glad to put this week of insanity behind us, and look forward to our regular postings this week.
