The Club Mansion located in Chelsea in New York City was the host of the Diesel sponsored NYC Paper Mag’s Fourth Annual Nightlife Awards. If you have ever stayed up late wondering if such awards existed…well, they do! It was a who’s who of NYC nightlife coming together to celebrate and honor the best clubs, DJs, promoters, nightlife blogs and more!! Our friends at guest of a guest (www.guestofaguest.com) Rachelle Hruska and others invited us along, as they were nominees for the best online blog award. Richie Rich along with Ally Hilfilger, Michael Musto and others presented awards to the hottest folks on the NYC scene for 2008.
Some of the highlights: The best club award went to “Santa’s Party House.” Best Bar/Lounge went to “Angels and Kings.” Samantha Ronson won an award for her Deejaying skills while DJ Skeet Skeet took home the overall award for best DJ award. A Personal high for me was getting to meet the legendary photographer Patrick McMullan (truly a huge honor), as well as spending some time with his son Liam who was celebrating the launch of his role as Page 6 Writer for the NY Post (Best of luck Liam!). I headed home at about 10:30pm since I’ve got an early day of training and a big week ahead!
