They say that first is the worst, but that certainly wasn't the case last night at the kick-off of our Summer Jam series with W Downtown. Situated in W New York Downtown's amazing Living Room Bar & Terrace, we danced till we dropped with True Blood hottie Joe Manganiello (if you're not familiar, he's an oft-shirtless werewolf—'nuff said) thanks to DJs Caitlin Moe and Mia Moretti, who kept the party pumping. Thankfully there were plenty of Magnum ice cream bars (yes, the bars awkwardly hawked by Kaiser Karl) and cocktails by Charlotte Voisey up for grabs to help us beat the dance-and-summer-generated heat. If you missed out on all the action, we've still got four more Summer Jams at the Living Room Terrace coming up this summer—the next one is on July 19 with tunes courtesy of Chrissie Miller. To tide you over until the next bash, click through the slideshow to see what our fabulous party goers wore, and please excuse us while we continue nursing our hump day hangover. TGIF!
