At the beginning of the event we were introduced to the chefs of the evening.

Below is a look at some of the fabulous meals served throughout the night.

Oh, I also forgot the wine.  Thanks to Diageo's new wine division for all the fabulous wine pairings. I am actually not a huge fan of wine. I am more of a champagne and a vodka girl myself but I did find most of the wines quite refreshing and enjoyable. It is not everyday that I get the chance to taste a large array of wines with gourmet cuisine. 

The Lexus

I also had the chance to check out a few models from Lexus. This was my favorite one from the night. I love the style and the interior! Shout out to Lexus for hosting this event! I loved that all the guest got a up close and personal look at some great automobiles in the Lexus rooster. Hopefully when I can do Heavy on Fashion Full time, I will be buying myself one of these bad boys!

The Scene 

DJ Lil Mic was great. He played a mix of the hottest records with a few classics mixed in. By the middle of the event, many people where dancing, sipping on some wine, and eating some gourmet meals.  It was a really great atmosphere. The crowd was pretty good and everyone was really enjoy the vibe Uptown Magazine brought to NYC.
