Tonight, I’m partying with Olivia Palermo and Built By the Factory at Piperlime. Following a crazy fun Manhattan Cocktail Classics Afterparty presented by Tanqueray, I’m happy to be back at Clarkson on Thursday night, playing a lot of classic hip hop and more (9 pm – 2 am, no cover). Friday night, we’re celebrating the 4th Annual Veggie Prom, benefiting Heart, a nonprofit with a mission to foster compassion and respect for all living beings and the environment by educating youth and teachers in Humane Education (Fontana’s, 8 pm – 2 am, $15 adv/$20 door).
- Look at this broccoli breakdancing!
Find me at Clarkson in the West Village on Friday night, kickin it with the Tanqueray crowd, and then I’m DJing the Earth School’s Spring Auction on Saturday at Saint Nicholas Hall.
First, here’s a throwback photo from 2010. There’s famed trapstar DJ Speakerfoxxx on the left, our amazing friend Holly in the middle, and me on the right.
Next up on the schedule: I’m at Whiskey Rebel tonight (Friday, 5/10, 9 to 3, no cover), Kings Plaza Guess store tomorrow (Saturday, 5/11, 2 to 5, no cover), and Andaz Wall Street for Mother’s Day Brunch (Sunday, 5/12, get tickets here).
If I wasn’t DJing in this event’s VIP tent on Wednesday, I would be playing the biggest Words With Friends game ever (you could say I’m a WWF enthusiast). And that’s “biggest” as in: the game will be displayed on an 8-story-high game board in the middle of Manhattan. I’m really excited about being a part of the celebration along with celebrity host Jordin Sparks. It’s all happening at the Maritime Hotel on Wednesday, May 8 from 7 ’til 11 (363 W. 16th Street).
Dancefloor crushing fellow ATLien Kid Cedek posted an image detailing the rules of dating a DJ on Facebook this morning. Here are my Tips for a DJ Dating a DJ (just cuz I might know something about that). Enjoy!
Lil Ray’s Tips for a DJ Dating a DJ
1. If you’re the jealous type, don’t date anyone.
2. You can’t be at all of each other’s gigs. Obviously.
3. If you have mad skills with one of the many other things a DJ needs to do, help your partner out.
4. If you wind up at each other’s gigs, be the request gatekeeper or drink getter, but not the co-DJ. You’re off work right now.
5. If the gig ends at 4 (this is NYC), wait ’til everyone gets paid, and then go to a 24-hour diner together. You’re hungry.
6. Put turntables in every room in your apartment. You both have to practice and work on mixes.
7. After a long night of dealing with assholes, drunks and douchebags, have a good laugh about it together and be grateful you have the same cool job as each other. Mutual understanding is awesome.
Bloomingdale’s Denim Days sale kicks off this Thursday, March 21, and I’ll be there at the 59th St location to help celebrate (6 pm – 8 pm)! Bloomie’s jeans selection is pretty awesome–there’s something for every body type. Saturday, I’m back at Whiskey Rebel on 28th and Lex for all your laid back, no cover, no attitude weekend socializing needs.
I’m back at Neiman Marcus (White Plains) to party with the Junior League of Central Westchester as they gear up for their Club Chic Spring Fundraiser!
Tonight, find me at Crunch Gym Chelsea, where your after-work private trainer session feels more like the run-up (heyo!) to your weekend night out (Tuesday, 6 pm – 9 pm, 220 W 19th St).
Thursday, my inner 80′s child is especially excited about DJing the Keds x Madewell party at the Soho Madewell store (RSVP here; 6 pm – 8 pm, 435 Broome St). The Keds x Madewell collab collection is super fresh, but these will always hold a special place in my heart:
Today, come find me at bareMinerals and InStyle present John Adler for bareMinerals with Tai Beauchamp at Bare Escentuals Herald Square Boutique (Friday, February 22, 4 pm – 8 pm).
Then take a trip with me tomorrow up to Neiman Marcus White Plains for the launch of this season’s Gown Caravan (Saturday, February 23, 12 pm – 4 pm).
And I’m back in the City Saturday night for Soho Synagogue’s Purim Party.
Come and see me in Harlem on Thursday. Get your nails done and pick up a fresh pair of adidas Good Luck Charm Valentine’s Day kicks:
Ladies in the New York City area are invited to attend an event that combines pampering with fresh new sneakers. The 2013 beauty event put on by Jimmy Jazz and adidas will take place on February 7 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the NYC Jimmy Jazz location – 239 W 125th street, 10027.
During the fun women-only fete, ladies will be spoiled with hand treatments and quick manicures from the experts at The Lacquer Palace all while listening to great music and enjoying one another’s company. Prizes and appetizers will be given out as well.
Even though the night is all about pampering, guests will also be able to get a sneak peek at adidas’ new Valentine’s Day-inspired kicks. The Good Luck Charm (GLC) sneakers come in a hot pink, black and white colorway with a mix of leather and other textures that are sure to pop on February 14 and any other day. The sneakers will be available at Jimmy Jazz stores and online at JimmyJazz.com.
Those interested in participating in the night of pampering should act fast – space is limited so guests are urged to RSVP at email@example.com.
