OUT ON A SCHOOL NIGHT, FOR BOOZE AND BRACELETS
Weather-wise, yesterday evening was kind of a lousy. But an excuse to celebrate MICA with good people and good food? We’re down.
After months of anticipation and early buzz, the long-awaited Opening Ceremony and Intel MICA bracelet is finally up for grabs. Last night, OC threw an intimate in-store event to get people up close and personal to the bracelets. When they weren’t busy testing out all of the features (email functions, Yelp reviews, and “smart” calendar alerts), guests were treated to the sweet sounds of Chairlift as Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly took over the tables.
Our favorite glam gals behind Naomi Nails polished off a few stylish manicures, perfect for showing off against the stem of a perfectly mixed, nutmeg cocktail. Another bang-up addition to the party was the serious nomming action, with pork belly buns from Momofuku and gold-leaf chocolate cookies from Milk Bar. “I came here for the cookies,” said one guest happily, and we know she was only half-kidding!
Even with all of the party offerings, the true highlight of the event was still the MICA bracelet making its grand debut, right in the thick of holiday season.
