Thanks for coming out, and keeping the scene aliiiive!


As you know, Friday night we hosted the Lost In a Supermarket Launch Party at Liberace’s penthouse along with design collective Le Branché. We were totally overwhelmed by the RSVP response and had to shut the list down on Friday morning. Unsurprisingly, we were stormed at the gates come party time! Many more of you than we expected heeded our “get there early” mantra, the result of which was a packed sidewalk half an hour before opening. In the end, 400 people walked through our door over 3 hours, and many more were  left stranded outside. We TRULY apologize to all those friends and guests we couldn’t allow entry, but we had the owner of the building guarding the elevator up with a off duty cop. Long story short, no one else was getting in!

Those who did enter got treated with art installations from Reggieknow, Commonwealth, Sterling Bartlett, Victor Wilde and got to watch our man Jim Mahfood do a live comic strip of the night (we’ll be posting that one-page beauty at a later time!). De Signer killed the live set under their monitor-enhanced scaffolding, and DJs Dirtie Blond and D.YSH made sure the crowd was aurally lubed the whole night.

They did their job and did it well. Bummer the cops decided to show up around midnight and kill the entertainment for the night. The $1500 noise violation ticket they issued us (sans warning) certainly convinced us they were serious.

We want to take one last time to thank our sponsors for helping us celebrate, and helping y’all have fun! First off thanks to PUMA for making it all happen, and a tip of the hat to Metl 2012, IS Vodka and PBR for getting everyone tipsy. Thanks to Izze Sparkling Juice for making all the drinks taste so fizzy and good (and for re-hydrating those of you enjoying yourselves so much). Lastly, thanks to Pull-In underwear for supplying the bartenders with such smoking hot outfits, and for giving 50 special guests some nice undies to play LIAS the home version with.

Couple galleries of pics below, and many more after the Jump! See if you can spot Waldo…
