Ever since it opened, Milk has always been one of the arbiters of cool in New York, serving as a place where designers and artists convene and incubate, but also where downtown Manhattan lets loose and parties. This was the underlying feeling at last night's Milk holiday party at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, a no-holds-barred blowout that capped off another monumental year for the flourishing brand. Mazdack Rassi and co. brought out over 1000 people to the Greenpoint warehouse, where you could barely move 10 feet without finding something interesting to do. In the back, guests took advantage of the games which included hoops, arcade games, ping pong, and foosball.
