We never judge a book by its cover. But if we ever did, we'd be making a safe bet by calling Frank 151, a chapter-by-chapter cultural chapbook, of sorts, one wild literary ride. With guest curators and editors in each edition, the project has been trendsetting since its inception in 1999, and now, for its 51st installment, it tapped the likes of Eddie Huang, Reformation, Jenne Lombardo, and Stevie Williams, to name a few. Oh, and they also threw one kick-ass party at Gemma and The Bowery Hotel last night.
Eclectic attendees including Steve Olson, Jim Jarmush, and Raekwon rubbed elbows with Harley Viera Newton, Natalie Joos, and the Stephens sisters. And obviously we were there to dine, to dance, to stare at the pretty dresses (and okay, snap some pics and throw some back with Raekwon, too). Check out the photos from last night's event and pick up Frank's latest chapter when it hits Barnes & Nobles and the world wide web tomorrow.
