AVENUE hosted a party at Doubles to celebrate our new editor-in-chief, Michael Gross. Located in the Sherry-Netherland hotel, the venue had the perfect intimate lighting and a great space for us to welcome our guests and introduce them to the new era of the magazine. AVENUE president Randi Schatz gave a toast to Gross, emphasizing the skills and expertise he has brought to the magazine.


Guests got to enjoy a full open bar, and hors d’oeuvres like mini-crab cakes and sushi.


In the crowd:  Lavinia Branca Snyder, Dana Hammond and Patrick Stubgen, Patricia Raynes, Allison Stern, Cassandra Seidenfeld, Cheri Kaufman, Bill Slight, Lucia Hwong Gordon, Carolina von Humboldt, Harry and Gigi Benson, Gay Talese, Leesa Rowland, Pam Taylor, Liliana Cavendish, Sharon Bush, Ryan Nessing, Roy Kean, Parker Gentry, Patricia Jean, Emilie Jean Irving, Ann Magnin, Carolina Von Humboldt, Henry Lambert and Heather Aquino, Lauren Day Roberts, Christophe Von Hohenberg, Gideon Lewin, Stan Ponte, Candy Pratts Price, Wally Turner and Denise De Luca.
