Before I scoot over to Toy to DJ at the BlackBook Fashion Week soiree, I will scoot over to the Secret Society book’s event at Soho boutique treasure & bond, 350 W. Broadway. My friend, mentor, and owner of my DJ management agency 4AM – Jonny "The Lover" Lennon – will be spinning at this soiree. The hosts are myself Nur Khan, Serge Becker, Simonez Wolf, and Christian Alexander. That’s good company, and I’m honored to be there. It’s a book signing event.
Here’s the official info on treasure & bond:
"Every purchase we ring up generates change – 100 percent of all our after-cost profits go directly to the programs that benefit people in need, right here in our own community. Located at the intersection of retail and philanthropy, Nordstrom-owned treasure & bond is more than just a store; it’s an exciting concept that has one simple goal: to help people help people, with wit, imagination, and style."
The tome, Secret Society: Modern Speakeasy Style and Design, was put together by Patrice Farameh of Farameh Media, a NY-based publishing house with the help of nightlife guru Christian Alexander. It takes you to the "world’s hottest speakeasy destinations…showcasing dozens and dozens of undercover clubs, and drawing you into this world of secrecy and exclusivity."
I went to Wikipedia for the source of the term "speakeasy:"
"They were so called because of the practice of speaking quietly about such a place in public, or when inside it, so as not to alert the police or neighbors."
See? I write, I DJ, I design, and I educate you. See you somewhere tonight.
