Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm co-host party for Emmy losers

While Emmy winners were busy celebrating last night, so were the Emmy losers. Thanks to Amy Poehler and Jon Hamm, those who did not win were also able to enjoy their night and forget about their loss.

Poehler and Hamm were co-hosts of the Emmy’s loser party held at Soho House in West Hollywood. Nominees who failed to win an Emmy were able to get into the party for free. Emmy winners who wanted to enter the party had to make a $1000 donation to the Worldwide Orphans Foundation. According to E! Online, more than $30,000 was raised by both Emmy winners and losers. Celebrities who donated money received a personally engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue.

THE SCENE
Backstage: Joseph Abboud Fall/Winter 2012

The Joseph Abboud Fall/Winter 2012 presentation was the brand’s reintroduction to the runway for the first time in seven years, and will certainly be hard to follow next season. The grandiose event took place in the expansive Marine & Aviation Terminal at Pier 57. Before the show backstage buzzed as expected and we could not have been more thrilled to witness it first hand (peep the slideshow below!). Creative Director Bernardo Rojo mingled among models, hair and makeup artists, and the backstage crew, taking interviews and exuding a surprisingly calm aura only a man as distinguished as he could possess. Deputy Editor Dan Koday and his teen.com video crew were present, providing comic relief while conducting “20 Questions to Ask a Model” interviews. Question topics ranging from American history (how old is the United States) to pop culture (what did Beyonce name her baby?) served to find out if it’s possible to have beauty and brains! The handsome fellas either impressed us with witty and accurate responses or ended up stumped otherwise—not to be entirely faulted, native Latvians have an excuse! Meanwhile, hair and makeup transformed the already dapper dudes into true Joseph Abboud men with precisely windblown hair and flawless complexions.

CAUSE OF THE WEEK
17th Annual Intercontinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball

On Saturday, November 5, 2011, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Florida and InterContinental Miami will celebrate the 17th Annual InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball. Deco Productions will take the Ball’s décor to a new level of extravagance with a black and white avant-garde masquerade that pays homage to Truman Capote’s famous A-list-only affair at New York’s Plaza Hotel in 1966. Masked guests can look forward to being surrounded by living chandeliers and psychedelic black and white art installations on the mezzanine.

CULINARY OCCASIONS
It's A Wine World, After All

Imagine a microcosmic version of EPCOT except less crowded and without screaming kids and creepy adults dressed as cartoon characters. You could truly drink around the world and discover a variety of flavors straight from the vine last weekend at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

The 10th Anniversary Miami International Wine Fair went far beyond your typical wine tasting to include spirits, food, accessories and cigars. Winemakers brought bottles from Argentina, Chile, France, Spain and even emerging wine markets like Canada, Brazil, South Africa and Portugal. They occupied dozens of booths roughly organized by region, ready to serve their samples and talk shop with business owners and distributors. Many wines were available exclusively at the fair, and haven't yet hit the market.

IN THE HOUSE
Electric Zoo's Un-Official Afterparty

You've been going to that 46th street cave since, like, ever. The Sound Factory back step just doesn't work to Electro. Shuffling? (Yea, only in your walker!)

Jokes aside, if you like your beats dark and dirty then the unofficial place to be after this weekend's Electric Zoo is Studio 21, where Endless presents Berlin’s tech-house extraordinaire &ME.

Making his first appearance in America for nearly a year, &ME has been busy on the European club circuit, playing massive festivals like Suicide Circus and Creamfields. &ME will be supported by Eric Harary, who’s destined to be the biggest names out of Brooklyn since Tony Rohr. Eric has played along side international techno superstar Ricardo Villalobos and been featured at the best world superclubs, from Dubai to Tokyo. Offering the best of local NYC talent, Terry Nova and Damien Ford will warm up the dance floor in the same fashion of their Brooklyn rooftop parties, which have made quite a stir this summer.

BAR CRAWLS
Eat, Drink, Be Merry, Eat Again

Bar crawling is like running a marathon. With all that drinking and "crawling" from one place to the next, nourishment and replenishment is key. Make sure to gobble down some hearty food, before and after the journey.

Before Drinking:

No one wants to go out with someone who's starving and becomes instantly intoxicated and sick after the first drink. Don't be that person.

Grab something that will thickly coat and protect the inner lining of the stomach, the place where alcohol is absorbed. Dairy products, such as cheese and a glass of milk, lubricate the belly in a way that allows for some absorption (and thereby drunkeness), but not a toxic amount. Carbohydrates, such as pizza, bread and pasta are also great contenders.
