On Monday, I went to James LaForce’s Christmas party. I’ve missed it the last few years and had forgotten how fun they are.
This year it was staged at 5 Beeckman Place which is an abandoned building, 10 floors high.
I was impressed from the minute I walked in. He had some balls to throw a party in such a massive (but gorgeous) abandoned building! It brought me back to the “old NY” in the 80′s, when the streets were still dangerous and there was a real underground.
Now grown up, the same cast of characters were all at the party, Lady Kier from Dee Lite (remember the song, Groove Is In The Heart?!) was the MC with Billy Beyond.
The space was spectacular in its old metal detail and Venetian like interiors.
James had staged little Xmas ghoul vignettes around the party and a there was a runway that you could Vogue on if you felt like it.
