Let’s get started!

The party starts! And remember, this is not the party where it's okay to show up late. You need to be in the door before 1pm. Early is on time and on time is late. This is the perfect time to grab brunch and a signature cocktail from Effen Vodka.

We'll be starting the party with Taela Naomi, an award winning DJ, model and educator based in NYC whose talent and presence have gained attention both in NYC and internationally. Taela's mission is to transcend the typical club experience to get people to connect and to move, to be present, and to boldly fall back in love with dance parties.
