We’re getting really excited for the launch party tonight. I busted out my grandpa’s tie clip and some glittery sneakers and everything!
A quick reminder for those who RSVP’d in advance: the festivities begin at 7 p.m. tonight at Liberty Hall at the Ace Hotel (20 W 29th Street, New York, NY) and go until 10 p.m.
This event required that you RSVP in advance (space is limited) so please be nice to the folks at the door if there’s no more room inside. Believe me—they’d rather let everyone in and join the party. We’ll catch you at the next event.
