You would think with the long line down 41st street waiting to get in the club Arena and DJ Zeke Thomas mixing it up old school that people were out for a regular night of fun and a little debauchery –but it was only 7 pm. Actually, Arena opened it’s doors to raise money for the charity GlamourGals and the theme was pink and I was wearing it! I was excited to be handed a beautiful pink satchel full of make up on my way in!
