Blue Martini

Drinks & Giveaways At Blue Martini's Little Black Dress Event [PHOTOS]

On July 21 at CityCenter of CityNorth, Blue Martini hosted its popular Little Black Dress event, considered one of its largest events of the year. Ladies slipped into their sexiest LBD looking to sip on some specialty drinks, enjoy some live music by the Instant Classics (followed by DJQ), and cross their fingers in hopes that their name is called as one of the lucky raffle winners. But this wasn’t an ordinary raffle, mind you.

The Little Black Dress event was created as a getaway, an oasis for ladies to beat the heat, while also offering the chance to win some incredibly luxurious prizes, ranging from the $100s to $1,000s — including a Louis Vuitton Handbag, Christian Louboutin stilettos, JW Marriott Desert Ridge “staycation” spa package, a rejuvenation package by Perfect Skin Laser Center and more.

And, at the bar, Blue Martini had American Harvest Bottle specials, 42 superior martinis as well as a new tapas food menu. (You’ll have to head over to Blue Martini to find out what’s on the menu!)

The event attracted hundreds of guests; and, our very own Glory Shim was there to capture every moment. Check out her photos from Blue Martini’s Little Black Dress event:

Scottsdale Fashion Square: Not Your Typical Mall

The best of both worlds is the best way to describe my trip to Scottsdale Fashion Square. There is something for everyone, yet the experience is different from your typical mall.

Scottsdale Fashion Square offers the ideal stores that you can’t access anywhere else. It was a treat to be able to explore Louis Vuitton, Coach and Tiffany & Co. all in one mall. The blend of stores, Harkins Theatres, as well as variety of food and treats makes it a mall to remember.

Accompanied by my boyfriend, who is not a big fan of stores that aren’t about gaming, technology or pop culture, he was able to cope due to the variety of stores that suited both of us.  We enjoyed exploring stores such as Game Stop, Disney Store, Ed Hardy, Crate & Barrel, Betsey Johnson, Abercrombie & Fitch, Fossil and the Microsoft Store.

We spent a fair amount of time within the Microsoft store examining the various computer and tablets. Both of us have Macs, so it was interesting to compare the other products out there in one space. Many children were playing Xbox 360 Kinect with their parents, in the store, which also sells many Kinect games that seemingly flew off the shelves.

Tempted by the delicious smells wafting around the mall, we took a look at a few of the restaurants that make up the food court, including Johnny Rockets, Panda Express, Pita Jungle, Blue Burrito Grille, Kona Grill, Paradise Bakery & Café and Sarku Japan. Some other selections for dessert or a snack included Haagen-Dazs and doc popcorn.

With so much to do and such a unique selection, it breaks up the monotony of the day and perhaps the “normal” mall one would normally shop at. It’s a vacation from the day-to-day; I found this a special treat because I attend school in Tempe and usually am only able to make it to the Tempe Marketplace mall; so it was a nice change. I look forward to visiting Scottsdale Fashion Square again because of the variety and diversity that awaits me with every visit.
