Recap: Hey It’s Our First Birthday Party! PHOTOS

Last Tuesday (of course) we noshed, drank and reveled to celebrate one year of TueNight. And without further ado, here are a few photos….

The event was held at the beautiful Park Avenue South WeWork in New York City, last Tuesday, October 7. Adrianna hand screen-printed some goodie bag totes for the occasion (sleeves rolled, that one.)

Nearly 100 women (and a few dudes) attended, including TueNight contributors Kathleen Warner, Cherisse Gardner and actor Chantal Jean-Pierre.

The founders of BinderCon — Leigh Stein (l) and Lux Alptraum. We learned Lux was a roller derby goddess; we think she’d like this story.

Chantal Jean-Pierre ended the evening’s readings with Cherisse Gardner’s piece, The Day I Cut My Hair, I Lost More Than Locks. Nary a dry eye in the house.

Our sponsors, including Wine Sisterhood and Middle Sister Wine, Cabot Cheese, La NewYorkina, Hint Water and Aperol (see the glowing orange Aperol Spritz — was amazing) helped to make the evening a smash with everyone, including founding TueNighters Kat Borosky and Adrianna Dufay.
