Last night the Young Friends of ACRIA hosted a party celebrating a new year of continued support for the non-profit organization, which develops HIV research, education, and prevention programs. Designer Jason Wu, Art Production Fund director Casey Fremont Crowe, and jewelry designer Dana Lorenz all hosted the event at the newly opened Gordon Bar at the SIXTY Soho hotel, where a crowd of stylish downtown regulars gathered. Strawberry vodka punch and hot toddys were the drinks of choice for the guests, including style expert Mary Alice Stephenson, fashionable DJ May Kwok, and designer Peter Som. Members of ACRIA get access to exclusive events including artist studio and museum tours, as well as the annual Summer Soiree, and the party last night was the perfect way to kick-off another year for the growing organization.
There are few things more glorious than peanut butter when it comes to our favorite foods. In fact, we could eat peanut butter at just about any hour of the day or night (because in appropriate quantities, it's still good for you, right?). That said, we're not surprised that this Saturday, January 24th, has been deemed National Peanut Butter Day (NPBD). Of course, we're super excited to celebrate/indulge in (same thing) our favorite peanut butter treats. From no-bake peanut butter cookies to peanut butter martinis or peanut butter and bacon sandwiches (yep), NPBD may just be the best day, ever.

Since the holiday break New York has been sleepy, but the downtown crowd decided to make up for lost time last night at The Mirror Cube launch party at Baby's All Right in Williamsburg. The new website created by Jess Manaforts gives artists and creatives a platform to personally recommend their favorite art, music, and film events to anyone who wants to engage in that community. Following weeks of hibernation, guests were thrust right back into the mix, with a completely packed house, open bar, and 2 band performances. The night kicked off with buzzed-about singer Soko DJing during her brief stay in NYC. She set the tone perfectly with uptempo rock jams that made way for the opening act The Walking Shapes. In the front of the room Timo Weiland met up with photographer Rush Zimmerman and blogger Danielle Bernstein following his Champion collaboration a few blocks north.
Last night, Veuve Clicquot returned to the Standard Highline for their annual Clicquot In The Snow winter celebration. This time, the entire Biergarten was transformed into the 'Clicquot Chalet,' complete with food, games, and bottles (as far as the eye could see!) of the brands signature Yellow Label champagne. While the ice skating rink wasn't in play this year, guests were more than happy to trade the cold winds for the indoor winter-wonderland, fitted with decorative mountaintop decals, white manzanita branches, and a custom Clicquot sled which itself yielded dozens of Instagrams. The fashion set had a strong presence at the event, with Rebecca Minkoff, Carly Cushnie & Michelle Ochs, and Timo Weiland all enjoying a night of bubbly.
