It's time to draw your loved ones close, jack up the bass, and kick back marg after marg till you get brain freeze. But before you go plan your own margarita-filled soirée, we thought you could use a few pointers from a pro. So, we called up DJ Jilly Hendrix — someone who's just as adept at party planning, cutting quips, and having a good time as she is at picking the best tracks — to show us how it's done. And, boy, did she ever.
Not only did the lady turn Bowery boutique Dagny & Barstow into a swinging hotspot for the night with just the right decor, she roped in her seriously stylish friends to help her down all those delicious margaritas. Good thing we hooked her up with a flowing supply of our partner Grand Marnier (sub-standard margs would have killed this bash.)
