What’s better than a family moment? A common turn of phrase among our office is, “Well, [so-and-so] is GAYLETTER family.” The word tends to keep our priorities straight. We also just really do value the relationships we have nurtured over the years… between each other, our contributors, our friends. It’s all relative at the end of the day. Family Style is a party concepted in a similar vein. Created by Jeremy Osslund, Paul Tomlinson and DJ Reaubert, the three met at the Honcho Campout this August and immediately cliqued, dancing and sharing stories with what they call their “dancing family.” “Family Style is for us,” they said, “a way of sharing what we love with people. Food and music have always brought people together, so that’s the vibe we want to cultivate.” Happening at Catina Royal, which promotes the lavish decorum of the late 18th/early 19th century (there is a chandelier in the dining room), enjoy dinner in the eclectic space before you dance in the relatively hidden warehouse dance floor in the back room. The party, which is premiering this week (September 26), will happen on the last Wednesday of each month and will feature a curated mix to supplement your meal in the dining room as well as DJ Reaubert who will serve as resident for the dance floor and a new DJ to help headline every month. There’s no cover and drinks are not too damn expensive. As the fall approaches, you’re going to want to keep who you like the most close. That includes the people you party with. Why not make this a standing date? New Yorker’s could use a bit of consistency… family values never hurt.
