New York

What is your favorite part of the job?

I definitely love being able to explore places out of my comfort zone, and being able to go to an array of different places and areas. My friends constantly ask me about which new place they should go to, and Party Earth has introduced me to places I might have not have otherwise known about.

Short Story/Anecdote from your time on the job:

I usually bring a friend with me whenever I’m checking a place out for Party Earth. We were put on the list for A60 and were able to glide right upstairs to the small rooftop. They had a private party still going on in the larger side so my friend and I grabbed cocktails at a table with some British guests of the hotel, which was pretty interesting. Then, when the other side opened up, the ratio petered out to mostly guys from the industry event, and they then invited us girls over to have drinks with them. We ended up having such a fun time and staying out much longer then we thought we would, and my friend found the cutest guy there whom she is now dating. The night was capped off with us being invited for late night eats back at Pastis. That’s the beauty of NY: you can start the night at one place, gearing up to have a low-key night, and then can be thrown in a totally different direction.

Which Party Earth reviewer(s) do you resemble most and why?

I definitely am mostly Adriana with a little Jonah thrown in. I’m obsessed with fashion and love getting dolled up with my girls and going dancing at a party brunch or one of the countless clubs. By the same token, I also love to get an expertly mixed cocktail with fresh ingredients, and discover new galleries and up-and-coming bands.

What is your perfect day in New York City? What are you doing and where are you going from morning to night?

My perfect day in the city would start with grabbing some coffee at Chelsea Common or Kava Café and catch up with the NY Times Style section and Page 6. Then I would meet the boy or two of my girlfriends for a leisurely stroll down the High Line and some shopping in Meatpacking at Intermix, Christian Louboutin, Jeffrey’s and La Perla. Afterwards, we would meet some friends for party brunch at Bagatelle and dance off our truffle frites. A little recovery time would be followed by some sushi and sake at BONDST or 15 East. Drinks at one of the speakeasies nearby like Angel’s Share would be followed by dancing at Avenue.
