Best NY party ever attended (and why): There are so many, but a few of the best include:
* A VMan ice-skating party at Chelsea Piers during Fashion Week was a riot.
Watching Brandy Wine and Brenda a Go-Go backwards-skate with all the male
models was priceless.
* The Van Cleef & Arpels
100th Anniversary Party, where they
brought in the Lido gals was nuts.
* The Club Sandwich party at Norwood last Fashion Week. The joining of forces between
Paris and New York scenes was atomic. I closed down the place with Hamish
* I haven’t been to Vandam, but I have never danced as much
as I used to at Kenny Kenny’s
late-night parties. And of course, Daniel Nardicio’s slide was New York at its
most debaucherous. I mean, where else can you see go-go dancers who eat hot
wings while gyrating, and a drag queen singing Dolly Parton gospel at 3 a.m.?
What sets Manhattan nightlife apart: Could I really have attended the above-mentioned
parties in any other city? Enough said.
