Last week, we told you that Tavi Gevinson would be spinning at Debonair Social Club in celebration of the Museum of Contemporary Art’s screening of Cadaver, the award-winning short. The fete went down last night (hope you checked it out!), but the fun didn't end there. There is always an after-party — and, in this case, it also happened to be Tavi's intimate 17th birthday celebration at Storefront Company.
Gevinson arrived at 8 p.m., but she wasn't dressed in one of her traditional statement getups. Instead, she sported denim overalls, a gray T-shirt, and white Converse sneaks. Hey, a gal has a right to wear whatever the she wants on her birthday. She celebrated with her parents, family friend/writer/director of Cadaver, Jonah Ansell, and Jonah’s parents. Tavi noshed on the signature cheese plate and beet-cured salmon bites, while Jonah experimented with the restaurant’s new spring dish, gurnard (a fish) served with dumplings, greens, and mustard.
But the icing on the cake — literally and figuratively — was a chocolate fudge creation topped with vanilla buttercream frosting and kumquat syrup, created by pastry chef Kym DeLost. And she walked away with more than a belly full of good eats. She was also presented with a print by local artist Gary Weidner of the restaurant’s 34-by-13-foot mixed-media mural. Not a bad way to ring in 17 in our opinion. While you may not have been invited, click through to peep snaps of Tavi's low-key birthday bash.
