Socialtees Shows Some Puppy Love at Sway Lounge

Last Thursday, Soho’s '90s relic, Sway Lounge hosted a benefit for Socialtees Animal Rescue. Socialtees is a non-profit that finds homes for abandoned animals living in kill shelters.

The pet friendly environment was most apparent upon entrance as guests were welcomed by the adorable stares of wandering puppies. The night riled supporters of the cause while offering up some great dog themed raffle prizes like dog pillows and gift cards.

Pink Elephant Makes its Much Anticipated Return

Saturday night, NYC saw the return rebirth of Pink Elephant, originally perched on w 27th st., now relocated to the West Village.

The reinvented night club dangles some clear changes from its original design such as a larger dance floor and a focus more so on cocktails rather than bottle service.

Pink Elephant version 2012 includes the "infinity room," a maze-like mixology bar, and cabaret lounge that’ll function as an event space while the smaller 200 person capacity allows owners David Sarner and Robert Montwaid to be more selective of their guests.

Graffiti Goes Mainstream at AVONE's New Exhibit in Sanctuary Hotel

Last Thursday, the Sanctuary Hotel hosted an exhibit of graffiti artist, AVONE (pronounced A.V. One) that felt so inherently New York, you’d think you had walked in one side of the lobby and found yourself right back on the street.

Surrounded by his murals, he now stood at the end of a long conference table among fellow graffiti artists with open sketch books and uncapped markers. Discussing his process with an older woman clasping on to her husband's arm, he smiles as she compliments his vision and requests his critique of her own paintings while friends try to butt in with jokes and stories. Growing up in Brooklyn neighborhoods like Crown Heights and Fort Greene, AVONE suggests his work is, “nostalgic and relatable. It’s what you see every day. It’s my surroundings, young, urban and street.”
