On a less-than-torturously hot summer evening, hundreds of guests headed to the Beekman BGBC by the South Street Seaport to get a taste of vacation by feeling the sand between our toes and enjoying some tropical Malibu cocktails. The signature drink, Liquid Sunshine (1-1/2 parts Malibu, 1 part pineapple juice, 1 part orange juice, splash of club soda) was the main go-to drink, along with other drinks with coconut water, ginger ale, and Malibu Black.
The grill was fired up and there was an intense line for the hot dogs and hamburgers – essential for any summer BBQ. While we fanned ourselves from the heat, the sexy Carnivale dancers didn’t mind turning up the heat with their booty-shaking. DJ Skribble kept us entertained while we learned some of our own mixing skills at the Scratch DJ Academy booth.
Before Ciara took to the stage, there was an awesome fireworks display over the Pier to celebrate the summer season. Talk about an extravagant party expense, but it was an amazing touch! Ciara herself was explosive in her sexy dance moves, performing some of her old hits like “1,2 Step” and “Goodies,” along with new songs including “Like a Boy.”
Ciara’s performance was energetic and sexy! Always the fiery and salacious dancer.
