Stars, Stripes, & Vodka - Asterisk Magazine First Year Anniversary Extravaganza

I know this is little late but better late than never. A week ago, Asterisk Magazine celebrated their first year anniversary. For those not on the know, it's a local San Francisco magazine that talks about anything and everything in San Francisco; food, fashion, sights, I mean, EVERYTHING. It was held in the mission's Public Works and sponsored by Blue Angel vodka among others.
As of most local events I planned to show my face, leave and probably catch the late news since it was on a work night. But surprisingly I had a lot of fun. The artwork by Erik Otto was refreshing. Modern art seems to be the main focal point of the occasion from the "inside joke" of the stocked boxes to the projected animation of previous issues of the magazine. Blue Angel also provided some vodka inspired libations and Pan-Latin dishes provided by Charanga (also located in the Mission). It was quite nice to bump into old friends and also meet new ones alike.
In a fashion sense, I told my best friend that I've learned my lesson when it comes to events in San Francisco. I tend to be overdressed. So for this event I opted to wear my Goorin bros. hat, My Louis Vuitton necklace to accentuate my striped Marc Jacobs sweater completed by my Kenneth Cole automatic watch that seems to get more complements than it really deserves.  In terms of the men who attended the event, let me tell you this, I don't think I've seen so much plaid shirts in one occasion. I was starting to feel like for some reason I didn't get the memo. Oh well it is San Francisco after all.
The live performance by Nick Waterhouse was some kind of amazing. It was very entertaining! And eventhough I didn't win my ipad 2 in the raffle (I supposed that I have to get it the normal way, buying it) I had fun, surprisingly.
Below are some pictures that I took with my iphone (which you can possibly tell) and a few courtesy of my friend Ted Delacruz.
