Manhattan and Craig Pogson threw an event celebrating the magazine’s April issue.
THE PARTY In honor of Manhattan’s April Men of the Moment issue, La Goulue’s Craig Pogson hosted a celebration at Bally’s Upper East Side boutique. Guests shopped from a selection of ultrachic leather goods and shoes, and 15 percent of proceeds benefited City Harvest’s Fruit Bowl Program. THE GUESTS The notables represented a variety of industries, including media, communications and design, but the stars of the evening were the Men of the Moment recipients: Pogson, Alex Assouline, Benni Frowein and John Derian. The suave gentlemen rubbed elbows with the crowd and sipped cocktails made from The Macallan whiskey, which sponsored the soiree. THE HIGHLIGHTS After the event, the party continued around the corner at La Goulue, where Champagne and chocolate confections abounded. Managing partner Pogson himself milled around the tables to ensure the city’s smart set were well-entertained. -Kendyl Kearly
