Last night, Gilt City had a carnival on the rooftop of the W Hotel that featured everything from the W's new summer cocktails to carnival games to carnival treats like corn dogs and candy apples. Bliss Spa (which has a post at the W) provided complimentary massages and nail polish changes, and everyone was going crazy for the gelato from Dolci Gelati. Models, provided by John Paul Hamilton, were dressed in hot pink duds from Lululemon Athletica.

Tickets were awarded for guests that could get the ball through the hole in the "crazy driver" game, whack the shark on Hammerhead, get a good score on shuffle-curling, or knock cans over with a baseball. Tickets could be reimbursed for craft cocktails, the only thing 20-somethings want more than a giant stuffed animal. Bring it on, summer!

Guests included: Grant Allen, Emil Caillaux, Steve Cheveney, Chris Cooper, Kaitlyn Ferrara, Theresa Highsmith, Fran Holuba, Emily Joy, Katherine Kennedy, Barbara Martin, Ashley Mason-GreeneBritt McHenryKate Michael, Liz OwensJayne Sandman, Whitney Stringer, Daniel SwartzScott Thuman, and Kate Warren.
