Last night, I attended the Cyg-nature Veuve Clicquot Party at Cygnus 27 at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel downtown Grand Rapids... whoa, when I say that quickly, it sounds like I went to some magical Narnia land that you can only get to by taking the secret tower elevators into the sky (the 27th floor to be exact). In a sense, that's exactly what I did.
Going to Cygnus 27 was a reminder of 2 things... 1) Cygunus 27, in my opinion, provides one of the best atmospheres in this city. 2) Grand Rapids is a pretty awesome city. Allow me to elaborate...
Last night was essentially a dream late-night happy hour. Surrounded by an unbelieveable view of the city, I sipped on a glass of smooth Veuve (as I like to call it). Champagne, in general, is my absolute favorite beverage, so given the opportunity to relax with a few glasses of a top shelf bubbly, I was on Cloud 9... literally it seemed.
As the sun set, the party moved to the dance floor. DJ Slim Tim carried us through our 'happy hour' perfectly, beginning with a soothing medley and kicking it up a notch with a wicked remix of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." Yeah, you know the tune... now add a hard bass beat and lil dub step... YUP, awesome right?!
Which leads me to why this city is awesome... everyone was on the dance floor! Cygnus 27 was filled with a fantastic, fun group of people, a group of people who came out on a 'school' night in their swanky Summer getups and let loose till the wee hours of the morning.
I didn't want to leave! I was supposed to be in bed by 9:30 (don't judge... I wake up at 4am), and I didn't leave the party until 11:30. I couldn't... I was living my dream happy hour! Fabulous drinks, fabulous music, and FAB-U-LOUS individuals!
That magical Narnia land in the sky that serves champagne and rocks out to dubstep "Call Me Maybe" exists... right here... in the awesome city of G-RAP!
No worries... the next magical event takes place TONIGHT (Friday, June 22)! Let's keep the party going, ladies! It's Girls Night Out at the JW Marriott... click HERE for info. I'll see you on the dance floor!
