The bash took place at The Landing at Industry City in Brooklyn, New York where guests indulged themselves in a variety of foods including The Crabby Shack, The Smoke Joint and Sips & Bites. The party also featured performances from R&B singer BJ The Chicago Kid, Kari Faux and DJ sets from Ms. Nix and Kitty Cash.
