Nightswim continues on, all the way up to Halloween weekend, so take note Angelanos – that’s only this week and next week to skim down to your skivvies and jump into a (heated) pool before it’s officially winter time.
Swim under the stars and possibly WITH the stars (of the Hollywood kind) at the Roosevelt Hotel’s Tropicana Bar/ Pool. Mingle while having some of Tropicana’s signature cocktails or lay under the palm trees wrapped in bright lights, as DJ Showbusiness (Chris Holmes & the appropriately named Clark "Hot Tub" Duke) and ishowmyself (Nick Foster & WIll Crimes) spin some music for this ultra laid-back Thursday night.

Now that I have fully recovered from my hangover, I can give you the scoop on the Hennessy Artistry 2010. As I approached Cipriani Wall Street, I noticed a line that wrapped around the block and knew that it could not have been the press check-in. After a little investigating, I found my appropiate entrance and was escorted to a tiny room filled with people with cameras hanging around their knecks and recorders in their hands. "Eeek, I'm in the press pit!", which I can't stand so I opted out and headed to an area more to my liking, the bar. With some raspberry and hennessy concotion that was topped with sprite in hand, which might I add was very tasty, I checked out the scene. The crowd was quite eclectic. There were guys in colorful sneakers, ladies in sparkly dresses, a few "isn't it passed your bedtime grandpas?" and wall street banker, upper east sider types.
