Two Virgos Pretty in Pink Party

Posted by Maryanne Salvat On September - 1 - 2011

Elaine Lancaster and Kitty Meow Birthday (8) Elaine Lancaster celebrated her birthday with fellow Drag Diva extraordinaire, Kitty Meow (a fellow Virgo) at Bongos Cuban Café at the Hard Rock Hotel.  And while it’s uncommon for any Diva to share the spotlight, these two decided to celebrate together, as they have been dear friends since way before La Lancaster swam ashore on our Golden Beaches. 

Lancaster was a frequent visitor to Miami Beach back in the day, when Kitty was one of the Queens of everything nightlife. The two were destined to become friends says Elaine. “We were both so full of life and light that it would either be ‘best of friends’ or worst of foes.’” Fortunately, they hit it off instantly and have remained very close to this day.Bubble Gum pink balloons filled the room and Victorian pink cabbage rose arrangements designed by Gopan for Diva Rose were in bloom on every table at Bongos for the party and a four-tiered Tiffany Blue birthday cake created by Ana Paz Cakes provided the center piece for the birthday party again this year.  The open vodka bar was provided by Chambord Vodka which is- you guessed it PINK!  Are you seeing a theme here? Pink is Lancaster’s favorite color which also explains why Potamkin Auto Gallery provided the Pinkish Classic Thunderbird parked at the entrance. 

A nine-piece Cuban band had everyone dancing until midnight when renowned DJ Bill Hallquist took over and really got the guests partying until around 3 a.m. when we hear the “after party” began in Lancaster’s five-room “Princess Suite” at the Hard Rock Hotel. 

Seen celebrating with Elaine and Kitty were: Farid & Babi Moussallem , Sotheby’s real estate producer, Dr. Julio Hernandez, top cosmetic dentist, Dale Hipsh, Vice President for Hard Rock Hotels, Patrick Lingle, Vice President for CB5 Restaurant Group, Kevin Aviance, international recording artist, Michael Gongora, Vice Mayor of Miami Beach, James Cubby, author, Shireen Sandoval, co-anchor for WSVN’s  Deco Drive, Charlotte Libov, writer and  New York Times Contributor, DJ Bill Hallquist, international DJ, artist Martin Kaupp, Merle and Danny Weiss, philanthropists, and plastic surgeon, Dr. Julio Gallo to name a few.

Models and Bottles

On Saturday night at the Mondrian Hotel’s Sunset Lounge in South Beach, TAI Entertainment’s Alan Roth and Tommy Pooch, along with Matt Heien and Eastside PR hosted the Launch Party for the New York Times Best Selling Author, Mike Sincere’s new novel The Last Au Pair.   VIPs such as NBC’s Amara Sohn, CBS’s Howard Bernstein, People en Espanol’s Jimmy Vanegas, Philanthropist (and Maya Angelous’s grandson) Elliot Jones,  cover girls Maytee Martinez and Kira Alvarado (who grace the cover of the book!) and 300 close friends all celebrated the book with nibbles from Asia De Cuba, Grey Goose cocktails and Corzo Tequila late into the evening.  This book is about the model and au pair scene here in SOBE, and as expected lots of models/au pairs took the night off from babysitting to party at the Mondrian.
