I had such a wonderful evening last night. My friend William invited me out to go to the A-List’s, Mike Ruiz’s Birthday Celebration. What a fantastic party in an amazingly swanky new club, INDUSTRY!
I got to meet some new people who were all very sweet! Reichen Lehmkuhl, Ryan Nickulas and Mike Ruiz were all so lovely to meet! I was also kept in good company by Paulie Z, who is definitely a Gentleman.
Malan Breton came as well, and brought big smiles to my face. It is a pleasure as always to see him. I am also pleased that we FINALLY got a good photo of the two of us, YAY!
But, the party wasn’t over quite yet. As we made our way across town to another birthday celebration, for the lovely Dame Betty Grafstein.
We walked in to her brilliantly decorated NYC apartment and to my happy surprise I saw a lot of familiar faces. Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen were there, looking amazing as usual!!
Nole Marin was also there, and he even remembered me! 🙂 We got the chance to speak for some time, which was so nice. He is certainly a man of many talents… and I am in awe. We also got a good photo of the two of us, because as luck would have it, my camera doesn’t like to take pictures of me with others that actually turn out. But… I got lucky!
While attending Dame Betty’s party, I spoke with a very unique and interesting Gentleman. His look was so different and intriguing, I couldn’t help by being fascinated by how he put his look together. OK, so the funny part is, the whole time I never even knew it…but I was talking with the one and only Richie Rich!! And folks, he is one über talented and wonderful guy. 🙂
All in All, it was just another spectacularly special and memorable night!
Here’s the link to ALL of the photo’s from that evening.
Here is a short video I made of the Mike Ruiz Birthday Celebration.
Thank you all for your patience. Unfortunaltely I ran into some computer issues that did not allow me a very fast turn around.
I really hope you enjoy your images. I had a lot of fun attending this event, and feel so great that we were able to raise money for two very worthy causes.
Please feel free to leave comments, and also tag yourselves if I haven’t already done so.
On November 12, 2010 we celebrated, “An Evening with Miss New York, Claire Buffie“, hosted by Ronnie Kroell
The goal of the evening was to introduce Claire to the Community and to learn of her platform of, “Equality for All”, as she runs for Miss America in January of 2011. Imagine what it would be like to have a Miss America that not only through her words, but through her actions demonstrating what it looks like to educate on and embrace our diversity as Americans!!
