CultureMap Dallas welcomed more than 750 sexy scenesters to the Crow Collection of Asian Art for its one-year birthday bash, presented by Cadillac. It was a stunner, if we do say so ourselves, and we must give a shout out to Mother Nature for blessing us with near-perfect weather for the autumn evening soiree.

DJ Tony Schwa got the party started, and Lucy Wrubel kept it spinning from her perch high above the stage. Below, posh partiers — including Lynn McBee, LeeAnne Locken, Ricky Grunden, Angie Strange, Cynthia Smoot, Heather Lettieri, Rachel Rosen, Clayton Karels, Julia Daneshfar, Matt Coy, Jackson, Daniel Otero, Nicole Stewart and dozens of faithful CultureMap contributors — sipped signature cocktails by Patron, beer by Real Ale Brewing Company and Pinot Patch wines as they moved their way around the precious Asian works of art.

For this fancy fete, only the best would do, so we invited some of the top restaurants in Dallas to feed the crowd: Belly & Trumpet, Boulevardier, Bread Winners Cafe, Cook Hall, East Hampton Sandwich Co., Lockhart Smokehouse, Meso Maya, Slow Bone, Stampede 66 and Zoil' s NY Pizza Tavern. The Crow was immeasurably transformed into a swanky outdoor lounge, thanks to lighting from Beyond and decor from Fauxcades. Posh Floral created artful arrangements throughout.

Let us talk for a moment about the amazing pop-up performance by the Dallas Opera (in the video below). Social media was abuzz about the aria, from the opera Carmen, sung by Laurel Semerdjian and backed by Lucy Wrubel. For the grand finale, Denton band Seryn captivated the crowd as they rocked the Cadillac Close Up Music Series stage.

Guests left with assorted sweet treats — courtesy of Fluellen Cupcakes, Great One Cookie Company, Oh* Brownie and Smallcakes — and swag bags filled with surprises like Kendra Scott jewelry and Uber gift cards.

How will this event ever be topped? Well, there's always our second birthday.
