BlackBook Midnight Mixologists LA Event Presented by Stoli

SBE’s sleek MyStudio was the perfect setting Thursday night as Hollywood came out to toast BlackBook’s Midnight Mixologists and Stoli’s newest flavor, Chocolat Razberi. DJ Lindsay Luv set the tone, dropping everything from Lykke Li to Steve Nicks for the crowd, which included boldface names such as Bridget Marquardt, David Cade, 2 Broke Girls’ Shoshanna Bush, One Tree Hill’s Kate Voegele, America’s Next Top Model winner CariDee English, Amazing Race winner BJ Averell, and more.

 

 

Marquardt held court with friends at one of MyStudio’s booths overlooking a center bar, while guests sipped specialty cocktails made with Stoli’s freshly debuted Chocolat Razberi, the latest addition to their suite of flavored vodkas. The second annual Midnight Mixologists program once again crowned the most spirited mistresses and masters of mixology nationwide. Be sure to check out the full suite of Midnight Mixologists videos, interviews, recipes, and toplists.

This year’s star class of Midnight Mixologists include Justin Anderson (and his Majorelle Blue), Brad Bolt (and his Eskimo Brothers), Cricket Nelson (and her Not Yer Gran-Ma’s Lemonade), Camille Austin (and her Stoli Chinois Elitist), Joseph Brooke (and his Vanil Brasil), Beate Kiser (and her Apples to Oranges), and Charles Hardwick (and his Stoli Apparatchik). As if that weren’t enough, lucky guests were treated to some Stoli Chocolat Razberi creations including the Stoli Chocolat Raz Nectar, the Stoli Choco Raz Vanilla Creme, the Stoli Chocolate Raz Mango Fizz, and the Stoli Choco Raz Mixed Berry Sour.

Of course, a soiree of this magnitude requires many genius creators. Thanks of course to DJ Lindsay Luv for the mad beats; listen to her complete set from the event exclusively at DUBSET.com. Succulent photography came courtesy Kelly Bruce and Mary Gray, while fancy moving pictures were recorded by Anthony Chirco. Special thanks go out to SBE, MyStudio, and Fingerprint Communications.

Summer Trend Warning: Musician-Endorsed Eyewear

The next trend in eyewear appears to be singer-songwriter branded shades. Case in point? Oakley has tapped songstress Kate Voegele to wear a new model of sunglasses for the brand this year. The integrated marketing runs deep between Voegele and Oakley. “We’ll be giving away a pair of Oakley sunglasses every night at the shows,” she wrote recently on her blog. Voegele’s fall tour supporting Natasha Bedingfield comes to New York City tomorrow night at Irving Plaza.

The Oakley partnership extends not only to the glasses, which feature the singer’s bright drawings on the inside of the frames (she paints in her spare time and did the artwork on her latest CD cover), but Voegele has also appeared at Oakley events recently in Los Angeles, just north of where the One Tree Hill actress currently lives.

Oakley has supported Voegele’s touring efforts since 2009, and she is one of the faces of the company’s “Perform Beautifully” campaign. Her “Signature Series Oakley Beckon” shades arrive in stores this September.

Of course, Voegele isn’t the only singer songwriter in the eyewear field. Everyone’s favorite old-school songstress, Lisa Loeb, has turned her signature cat-eye glasses into a side business. Last month, the “Stay” singer launched a new series of glasses with Classique Eyewear that includes streamlined pieces in black and tortoiseshell, as well as embellished options punctuated with rhinestones and etchings.
