Bethenny Frankel gifted the New York media with an early Cinco de Mayo this year. Last Saturday, May 3rd, she hosted a Cinco de Mayo party to officially launch Skinny Girl's two new margarita flavors: Sweet A’ Rita and Sparkling Margarita. I spent much of the party sipping on a cocktail that was 50/50 mix of each. They are both really good. I like Skinny Girl. It's a great product and brand targeted towards a specific clientele. Bethenny knows what that those ladies want and she delivers with a product that is easy, and fun, to drink. Skinny Girl cocktails were being mixed, too. And wine was on offer. But this afternoon was really all about the 'rita, so I kept it true to he party.
The party was at La Cenita Steak, the Meatpacking District's must visit spot this summer when their lower level lounge opens up.
It kind of turned into Bravo central for a minute. The Million Dollar Listing boys were there. Well, the two that matter, at least (Luis and Ryan OF COURSE).
And an Atlanta Housewives diva sashayed across the dance floor, but not before he stopped for selfie with me. Bevy Smith was there, too, and rumor had it Andy Cohen was going to show, but he was busy walking for Revlon's cancer walk.
It was a super fun event and Frankel herself looked like she let loose a little since "day drinking is fun!" "Thank you for celebrating Skinny Girl, since I am going to be a Fat Old Girl soon," she joked.
She was gracious and posed with anyone who asked her for a photo and took time out to thank everyone and talk to whoever decided they needed to tell her how much RHONY sucks without her.
By 4pm, everyone stumbled out of there and high tailed it to the nearest diner (literally, Diner) for salvation food. It was kind of dangerous plowing us all with that much tequila-based booze that early in the day with hardly any food, but it was a Cinco celebration Skinny Girl-style.
