For those of you who missed RuthieBirdNYC’s twitter/instagram updates from FNO last night, here’s a little recap of my adventure:

My friend Kristen joined me at my apartment and together we made our way down to the Meatpacking District to hear A Fine Frenzy perform in the Chelsea Market Anthropologie.

Next, we stopped by the Buddy Holly birthday party at Partners & Spade for Warby Parker.

It was too hot and crowded, so we left and walked a block south to the Billy Reid FNO Party. Shelly Colvin opened up the evening and was followed by Cory Chisel & The Wandering Sons, then Justin Townes Earle closed out the event crooning his Americana tunes.

Some of the incredible people who made the Billy Reid event possible.Kristen had to head home, so I left Billy Reid and went down the street with my friend Debs to John Varvatos to watch The Roots play! 

The show was incredible. There was so much energy in the room and Damon Bryson, a.k.a. Tuba Gooding Jr., leaped into the crowd with his tuba during the concert.

It was a great evening, and we ran into LuAnn de Lesseps from the Real Housewives of NY and half a dozen NHL & NBA players as we were heading home. Crazy! What did you do for FNO?
