Scenes from Winter Heat 2009

As we prepared for Winter Heat this year, we had difficulty deciding which heat-themed musical slogans to use. We could have told you “It’s getting hot in here, so come to Winter Heat.” Or, we could hearken back to an earlier time and suggest “The heat is on.” Some of us even favored, dare I say, that we suggest you may be “Lookin’ for some hot stuff.”

Finally, we gave up and realized we had better things to do.

Despite our failure to pick the appropriate lyrics, more than 400 people were inspired to come to Winter Heat this past Thursday, 3/12 at BLVD Nightclub in NYC, and we’re glad they did. Thanks to our fantastic guests, great tunes courtesy of the legendary DJ Missy B and DJ Trini, and stellar planning by event co-chairs Marla Hassner and Antoinette Kenmuir-Evans and the Winter Heat committee, we all had fun and [insert bad pun about heating up a cold night here].
