The event we've been waiting for, the local boutique takeover of ROOF's Runway Series, is finally here and the show will go down tonight.
Models from Factor Women Model Management will walk in looks from stores like Miriam Cecilia, Sara Jane and J Toor. The show begins at 7pm, but guests are encouraged to stop by earlier to sample ROOF's new summer menu, which includes items like black bean sliders, duck fat fries, and surf and turf tacos. ROOF punchbowls, which are meant for sharing and not for the faint of heart, will come filled with "Lost Room Key Punch," a concoction of rum, apricot brandy, pineapple syrup and pineapple bitters.
You can RSVP here.
