Finally, the post about the show…. I arrived at Sullivan Room to set up a little later than I was supposed to. I had just gotten out of work and was eager for my night to start.
I was going to be showcasing my new series of paintings alongside the beautiful and talented ladies
( some of their work above )
Once I arrived Kash ( TKL ) had already nailed down her collection and was gone. Mel ( MHS ) was still there setting up with the help of our good friend Jorge.
It didn’t take long for her to leave as well.
The girl’s plan was : go home, change and return to the show. Which I honestly didn’t understand the point, due to the fact that the show started in less than an hour and they would never make it back on time. Especially since the show was in the city and they lived in Queens and Brooklyn.
They decided to take the chance anyway, promising they would be back in time. Ugh, what was that for? I spent the whole night not only advertising my work, but theirs as well. It’s not that I minded, because I know I’m pretty good at it, but simply because I wasn’t prepared for it.
On another note, I was so grateful for all of those who came to support and show a little love. @PositiveP and @ethinaaa above, two cuties. Phil showed up which I loved. And these gorgeous ladies, Sara, Jess and her cousin stopped by as well.
Of course my Misha was there, and Q was awesome the whole night. Especially because he was treating my finger.
During my lunch break I was working on the final touches to a lifesize cardboard Minxette cutout and while cutting around the bodies I ended up slicing my finger with a box cutter.
At least all the blood was for a reason, everyone loved the cutout.
Mel finally arrived 15 minutes before the show ended, giving her enough time to say her hello’s around the room and back around to say her goodbye’s.
Once our time was over and all our canvases were packed we headed outside to bump into Kash, angry as ever.
Kash was busy arguing with the bouncer because she was misinformed about the time the show was supposed to end and basically mushed the guy and bombarded inside the venue. The bouncer ended up calling the cops and was ready to press charges. Everyone was arguing back and forth.
I ended up having to be the one to calm down the bouncer, speak to the manager and not have him press any charges.
Especially false charges like trespassing. It wasn’t that serious, even though Kash was acting a little out there.
After Kash walked around the block and calmed down a bit, we moved the show to the streets of the lower east.
Using my cardboard cutout we stopped strangers to take pictures, laughing and handing out my business cards.
It was a trip!

I made my way to Madame X a hole in the wall bar/lounge that I never knew existed in West Houston St. I arrived early, when I could have sworn I was going to be there late.
I walked in, the birthday girl nowhere in sight and not a familiar face. I noticed Corey, a close friend of Tanya at the bar and headed over, he already had a drink in his hand.
Small talk which didn’t last long, Kash arrived about 5 minutes later with everyone behind her. The party was moved upstairs with red dim lighting everywhere. Right next to the window and a little higher level. We had the best seat in the seat, we could see the whole floor.
Kash dressed in red and blue with gold cuff in each hand resembled a modern Wonderwoman look alike. Beautiful. I looked around and it seemed ( yet I wasn’t surprised ) that Chevy and I were the only dressed up in comic attire. Chevy made her red dress and two colored stockings work as Harley Quinn.
I was actually pretty happy with the dj’s selection in music. I can be such a picky bitch when it comes the music, it’s a make it or break it situation. So I was pretty happy when i saw he mixed it up from hip hop, r&b, reggae to merengue and salsa.
Tension escalated the night when one of the girls ( Girl No.1 ) who will remain un-named decided to act up over some internet drama and a scene was starting to form. I’m actually very impressed by the way ‘Girl No.2 ‘ reacted. Very classy and mature. There was no screaming in her part and she acted like an adult. As it should be, I can’t say the same for ‘Girl No.1’.
I’m glad the whole scenario didn’t get out of hand and Kash’s night wasn’t ruined. It didn’t take long for a bottle of red wine to be served and get everyone dancing.
I had a wonderful night and was glad I got to see so many old friends and make new ones.
Kash, I wish you all the best in life. Stay beautiful, driven and talented. To many I would say. the world has so much to offer you, but in this case YOU have so much to offer the world. happy Birthday.
