Lunar New Year @ MOMA PS1
I had such an incredible time last night at the annual Lunar New Year party by Bubble T and MOMA PS1. The performances were on point, and who doesn’t love a little drag to go with every party?! Am I right! The drag queens were decked out in metallics, furs, face paint and of course platform shoes everywhere! It was vibrant and the music was everything you would expect, and some. I found myself belting out the lyrics to Danity Kane’s “Sucka For Love.” My friends didn’t really join in song with me, but I appreciated being the only nerd who knew the lyrics. The dome was lit up by vivd red lights and snakes, dragons and pigs were projected onto the ceilings. The most prominent being the pig because 2019 is indeed the year of the little porkers. The drinks also had a little oriental twist. They had sake (My friend Erica and I downed two of them. Yum!) and lychee spritzers, tiger beer (a golden lager from Singapore that my boyfriend fell in love with), along with a few other tasty choices. This is pretty much how the rest of the night went. The music was a mixture of throw-backs and new age, with a little oriental. The BOBADOME was awesome, but let’s cut to the chase. Nothing is cooler than being able to see the museums exhibits late at night with a bunch of other buzzed individuals. The laughs! It was the most interesting experience to be able to laugh and talk as loud as you want and no one quiets you down or complains about your half-assed attempts to whisper. It was like a playground for adults, with only a few security guards chaperoning. Overall, I have to give the event a 4 stars. I know, I know, why the 4 star review if it was literally a free for all? Well the event was to capacity, and then some. They really did oversell tickets, and I mean oversold by like 100 tickets. It was super congested in the BOBADOME, and it honestly felt like a fire hazard. My claustrophobia was being heavily tested last night, and not in a good way. I would definitely suggest cutting tickets by like… 100. Make them a little pricier so the experience is more enjoyable. A girl wants to be able to dance, and when you’re sandwiched into a dome with that many people, a girl can’t shake it right. Just Saying!
Please check out some of the highlights I was able to capture from the angle of a 5 foot 3 shorty. Tall people, stop running to the front to block us little people please!! Kay, Thanks!
