30 Years of Magic - Beaujolais Nouveau Style

It was a night of magic at the Highline Ballroom.  Event designer extraordinaire, Adam Aleksander put together a night of decadence with stylish burlesque ladies on stilts, elegant contortionists, magicians both witty and wondrous.

Guests heeded the dark and sexy theme and came in dramatic attire of their own.  The event was in honor of the annual unveiling of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau.  It was the 30th anniversary of the wine.  Traditionally, the unveiling happens every the third Thursday of every November.

You could have your fortune read by the fabulously outfitted psychics on the second floor.  Visual artists sketched the scene while you could pose for a spooky/glam photo the old fashioned way.  More macabre decorative elements like skulls, bell jars and clocks gave the night a more mysterious air.
