    [Photos by NEIL RASMUS for W] Tuesday night, Marc Jacobs threw quite the birthday party for his fiance Lorenzo Martone. Let's go over the details: Party at the restaurant/lounge on everyone's radar (Avenue) that is yet to be opened? Check. Cocktails, sparklers, dancing and cake with 150 of the hottest guests in town including Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Genevieve Jones, DJ Jesus Lux, and Larry Gagosian? Check. Madonna!? Check. Back to the venue.  Avenue, who has been holding private tastings all week, will be celebrating its official opening tonight, welcoming a long list of loyal Strategic VIP's.

    And let's not forget that other nightclub that Strategic has a hand in: Dune in Southampton, which recently just reopened last weekend as the AXE Lounge (yes, after the spray).  This Sunday they threw a party and invited electro-hop group LMFAO.
