Limelight Marketplace Opens Today!

Were you a girl about town in the 1990's? Did I just date myself in an embarrassing way? If the name "Limelight" conjures up debauched club nights in an 18th century cathedral (or for some 'party monsters' a long blackout), tomorrow's event will come as a bit of a shock. Where flamboyant drag queens and progressive DJ's once ruled, a curated collective of chic retailers now reside.
The Limelight Marketplace will cut its ribbon on 2pm Friday for its grand opening. Clothing and beauty retailers like Sue Devitt, Lulu Denim, Havaianas and Caswell Massey will mix with gourmet purveyors like Cana Wine Bar and Cupcake Stop.
Retail designer James Mansour partnered with Jack Menashe to create a festive shopping palace where goods are arranged into "galleries". One can shop the sneaker gallery, beauty gallery, home decor before nibbling among the gourmet vendors.
Am I sad that one of my favorite playgrounds of the past is gone forever? A little. Do I think I still need that playground at this point? Hell no. Give me artisanal perfumes and chocolates any day.
