The New York-based brand solutions agency, Team Epiphany and Complex debuted on Friday, July 11th the highly anticipated #SUMMERFRIDAYS event series. The duo kicked-off the event series with a Caribbean Carnival themed event at NYC's Hudson Terrace. Bringing the tropical feel of the Caribbean to the city, which included Carnival dancers, a menu by Miss Lily’s, specialty cocktails from Hennessy, and a dancehall reggae/soca-infused soundtrack by Max Glazer and DJ Wonder.
The crowd was excited to have summer fridays back, for a while we thought the series was dead. Usually summer Fridays are in June, all of June. Although it was hot, we all enjoyed the wonderful dancers, cocktails and music. The food by Miss Lily was also delicious; they passed around chicken, beef and veggie patties and other amazing hor d'oeuvres. Summer Fridays is a weekly event that highlights the industry’s top influencers in one room to network, and enjoy the end of the week and celebrate the summer.
Celebrity guests at the event included Roc Nation recording artist, Melanie Fiona, and Renée Neufville from the legendary R&B duo, Zhané.
The 2014 #SUMMERFRIDAYS event partners include: Belvedere, Hennessy, JBL, Chevrolet and evian, and will consist of private fêtes each Friday across the city in various venues with individual event themes until August 1st.
