Sigel's Fine Wines and Great Spirits and CBS Radio pulled out all the stops for the inaugural White Out, a sexy, sweaty bash at the Dallas Contemporary. The exhibition space — themed A Midsummer Night's Dream meets Garden of Eden on one side and Mount Olympus on the other — looked more like a South Beach nightclub than an art museum.
That was definitely the point.
If you weren't wearing white or sipping one of the dozens of clear liquors being sampled, then you were definitely an outcast. Unless you were one of the half-naked hotties representing 180 Tequila or UV Salty Watermelon.
After liquoring up on drinks mixed by Polar Bear vodka, Ty Ku sake, Grey Goose vodka and Milagro tequila (plus another 25 or so more brands), attendees savored small bites from Velvet Taco, Dragonfly, Sambuca, Kenichi and Mason Bar. They found respite on white couches and played nicely with Aurora the python before getting their photos snapped in the Digital PhotoBooth sponsored by CultureMap.
In the foggy, semi-darkness, we spied partygoers Danielle Pinson, Faith Oliver, Laurie Cherry, Steve Kemble, Hannah Huff, Stephanie Blumenthal, Hiram Franco, Ramona Cherez, Matt Calloway, Marisa and Sean Vickers, Tammy Sandford having a blast.
