Thanks For Coming to Our Garden Party!
Thanks to everyone who came out for our Garden Party this month (and apologies for anyone we were not able to accommodate, space was tight!). About 60 extremely well-dressed design fans—seriously, you guys look good in daylight—gathered on the Flat Building rooftop as Alexis Rochas schooled us on the challenges of urban agriculture on a brilliantly sunny day. Afterwards we filed downstairs into the swanktastic Blue Velvet and sipped Champagne and lemon-spiked Hefeweizens while a brunch with produce snipped from that very rooftop was brought out in three beautifully-plated courses. Thanks to everyone at ForYourArt, LA Art Weekend, Blue Velvet, and of course Alexis for such a perfect day high above LA.
You can read more about the event over at Curbed, and thanks again to Jessica Ritz for including us in the LA Weekly's new Squid Ink blog (even though we're sorry you hurt your foot on the door—yikes! Don't sue us.). And you can also check out lots of photos on Facebook. If you have more coverage, please point us towards it so we can link you up, or upload your photos to our Flickr group. We've got May's event almost ready to announce, so stay tuned by subscribing to our newsletter (over there to the right) for all the details. And have a great weekend!
