The White Parties / Tilt & Pearl

Lavishly, loudly, and proudly, Tilt (444 Central Avenue) and Pearl (349 East Avenue) kicked in the front doors of summer's place and screamed "Hello!!"
The White Party
Tilt Nightclub & Ultralounge
This past Sunday, Tilt was the place to be to get down and dirty. Celebrating it's annual White Party, a theme party idea which was originally started as a circuit party along the east coast back in the seventies, Club Tilt went all out, all white, and packed itself into positions many haven't seen there ever. It was hot, sweaty, and judging by the reaction of the crowd, they loved every second of it.
I will let the pictures say the rest, but I need to give props to Tilt for pulling off a beautiful and successful party. I know everyone involved worked really hard. The sound system there is sick, only to be rivaled by Pearl's, and DJ Jonathan Herbert played to his crowd like Frankenstein, and that crowd was his monster. Cheers to everyone we met down there and also to those that came up to say hi.
The White Party
After Tilt, I stopped down to the East End to see my peeps @ Pearl because word had it that they too were going to be rockin' the white that evening. That was a lot of fun as well. Pearl has been celebrating the White Party the past couple of years, and has seen the party grow on the East-Al corner.
"It's good too see... I think that people understand what we are doing down here," observed John Slater, proprietor of Pearl.
Richie Salvaggio decided to make it out on a Sunday and keep the beat for the fine people, everything sounded great.
Once again, I will let the pictures do the talking on this one, but I have to give a shout out to bartenders Mike, Giselle, Ryan, and Jenna @ Pearl for always keeping it real and providing such great service. To all of you reading this who attend an event @ Pearl, you make sure you take good care of them when you see them. Werd.
