The event was hosted at the Trump World Tower directly across from the United Nations World Headquarters in midtown Manhattan. I had never been to the building but when I heard Derek Jeter was a resident I knew it had to be gorgeous. It turns out the event had taken over the entire ground floor establishment, the World Bar. Again, I had never been to this bar, but any place that is famous for a $50 cocktail – yes, that is right – five-zero, has to be good. (Just for reference it consists of Remy XO, Pineau des Charentes, Veuve Clicquot, and various other ingredients mixed at your table on a spotless silver tray—and crowned with a slick pool of 23-karat liquid gold.)
Now I am still a bit surprised that I was invited to this event as someone who works in advertising, but hey go with it. I was proud to stand by my friend Peter who was decorated in his military medals at this function.
Before I go into a mini photo-barrage I must give credit to the photographer Miss Emily Waldorf. Thank you Emily for taking all of these wonderful photos and sending them along to me as you knew I was so eager to share them on my blog. Befriending the photographer is always a great move at any event and Emily was one of the sweetest.
