    The Feast web site describes themselves as: "A small group of foodies including, but not limited to, chefs, restaurateurs, and creative types use underground culinary tactics along with extraordinary imagination, the element of surprise, and astonishing mobility to construct one-of-a-kind, memorable culinary and social moments that exist briefly and disappear almost immediately."

    The latest incarnation opened in the construction site of the soon-to-be-completed Sanctuary Hotel last night, transforming the venue into a pop-art paradise inspired by Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and the like. The menu was created by none other than 15-year-old Greg Grossman, who has recently acquired the affections of Martha Stewart and pretty much the whole planet by being adorable and making really yummy food.

    The new skincare and makeup company held its launch last night in Chinatown, celebrating beautiful people and the stuff that makes them that way. Gotham has an all-natural bent, so if you're looking for organic goods that are never ever tested on animals, Gotham's the way to go! From their blog: "We're here to show New York that you don't have to be boring to be organic and natural. You can party as hard as the rest of them, and still be good to the Earth you're stomping your feet on."
