Society Confidential: Beautiful Machine Mag celebrates success
Beautiful Machine Mag celebrates success
The Beautiful Machine Mag, a relatively new, edgy online publication, hosted a sexy cocktail party at a slick downtown penthouse loft on Saturday. About 150 beautiful people gathered for cocktails, vittles (prepared by Kelly McBride at Krave Catering) and dancing (DJ Rue). “We wanted to say thank you to some of our supporters and sponsors,” says magazine founder, Demetrius Carrington. “We’ve been in business for a year now focusing on Detroit. Now we’re spreading to other major cities across the country. We’re very grateful.” Among the guests were Fox 2 anchor Josh Landon, former Fox 2 anchor Anqunette (“Q”) Sarfoh, male grooming guru Marc Roberts, party promoter T. Woods, attorney Gilbert Borman (as in Farmer Jack’s heir), entrepreneur Donnie Holland, and radio personality Adam Helfman. “We’ll be doing a lot more hot social events in coming months,” adds Demetrius.

New restaurants headed to Detroit
For years we’ve been hearing about Adam Merkel and his trio of super cool restaurants in downtown Howell – The Silver Pig, Diamonds Steak and Seafood and Cello. To the delight of those whose camps are a little closer to downtown Detroit, we’ve learned that Adam is quietly opening two of his fab eateries in an undisclosed Metro Detroit location. The openings are planned for late summer/early fall. Stay tuned.
Best of Detroit parties on despite the heat
Being fabulous and staying cool in 90-degree heat was a task that several chic Detroiters were challenged with last week at Hour Detroit magazine’s Best of Detroit party. But as always, Detroiters made the best of it. “It was wonderful to see over 2,000 patrons attending Hour Detroit’s Best of Detroit party in support of the Give Detroit challenge,” says magazine publisher John Balardo. Give Detroit is a fundraising arm of Hour Media that supports local charities. And as hot and humid as it may have been that evening, Eastern Market looked fabulous, and the party was a 10, including food from more than 20 restaurants, and live music from Your Generation, DJ Captain 20 and NuClassica.
