And finally, what Nightranger reminiscence would be complete without giving props to the best parties of the year? Here, the bashes that made the parking fees, earplugs, foot blisters, bathroom-line waits and, yes, hangovers all worth it:
Urb’s 100th-Issue Bash featured a duet by Peaches and Tone-Luc, which was only part of what made this one a wild thing-a-ling. Good vibes abounded.
Paper Magazine’s L.A. Project: Big Apple bodaciousness met La-La Land lunacy with ’80s dance classes, a 24-hour store and carousing galore.
Stoli Hotel: Stoli soaked in the celeb set with this faux lodge, and kept ’em coming with a real beauty spa (and, of course, a free booze-a-palooza).
Everything at World of Wonder Gallery: The production company’s art shows and opening parties were the wackiest and most wondrous bacchanals Hollywood has seen in a long time. Wow indeed.
Muse Ball at LACMA: Salvador Dali’s surreal works take on a whole new dimension when you view them with hordes of costumed freaks on Halloween.
