What is Socially Superlative?

anniv-party-pic2We threw our one year anniversary party in collaboration with City Harvest to help them raise money for their charity.

Our guests were kept happy with great music from DJ Vikas Sapra, who spun great mixes for us all night long, and drinks from Cuca Fresca gave our taste buds a morsel of summer flavor.

The biggest hit of the night by far were our delicious birthday cupcakes from Ivy Bakery! We made our own cupcakes – vanilla, chocolate and red velvet –  with different choices of icing and toppings.

Next to the delectable treats was a display of Isabella Grace Originals, earth friendly jewelry designed by April Schenk Torres, who turns recycled materials into high fashion glamour. City Winery also donated a $150 gift certificate that we raffled off to a lucky guest.
