The bad news: Last year the festival was at Bicentennial Park, a significantly smaller venue than this year’s Bayfront Park. There was little to no cellphone connection available, probably because I was sandwiched in a mass of 100,000+ people.

The highly anticipated announcement from District 36 has finally come. The opening event for the new 36th Street nightclub will be on September 17, 2010, perfectly timed with the culmination of Fashion Week in New York City. Featuring Adam Beyer and Ida Engberg, the opening night promises to be one of nightlife's most exclusive red carpet evenings.
