Guests including The Bachelor’s Jenna Burke, Food Network’s Robert Brace, Dancing with the Star’s Albert Reed, and Eddie the Gun lead singer Camilla Romstrand enjoyed libations sponsored by MEDEA Vodka and Esquire magazine. DMC and late Run DMC member Jam Master Jay’s son TJ Mizell joined in the birthday bash following TJ’s Respect album release party the night prior.
With music spun by Terry Urban, Manero, and Sal Morale, the scene was lively throughout the evening but really took off with a surprise performance by DMC from legendary hip-hop group Run DMC. Performing classic hits like “Walk this Way” and “It’s Tricky” warmed the crowd to croon Happy Birthday properly to Mick.
Plentiful Red Bull and MEDEA cocktails available throughout the evening helped guests party into the wee hours of the morning and the Darby was packed with hip, young, and beautiful New Yorkers thanks to a tight door policy. Accordingly, many of Mick’s delicious Happy Birthday cupcakes went uneaten.
