last weekend (yes, this is a belated post), M & i went to the Kids for Kids benefit (for pediatric AIDS). We didn't know what to expect, and the whole thing was a bit chaotic. The idea was that we would see some celebrities, eat some yummy food and hang out with some wealthy people (tickets for this thing are $750 each!). Unfortunately, the only celebrities we saw were Nigel (fashion photographer), DJ DB (new york dj) and Jeff Koons (artist). I saw some other artists milling about, which, i guess probably isn't all that rare to see, since this event was held literally on Washington St and Jane St in the west village. Anyway, the food was yummy (we were too stuffed to try everything!) and we got there early enough that we weren't run-over by crazy children.
my plate of food from (what i can remember): The Stand, Indochine, Kitti Chai, Republic, Bond St, La Esquina, Spice Market and Country.
kids playing Guitar Hero on gigantic projections... you have no idea what it took for me to not run up there and grab the guitar from those kids... (actually, if you know me, maybe you do...)
cute little kids getting their picture taken in front of the sinister Spiderman backdrop!
