Tupperware's gone gangsta. Well, not really, but the good old brand of plastic products does have an O.G. spokesperson, and his name is Ice-T. The rapper and actor--along with wife Coco--hosted a Tupperware party on Thursday night at Room Service to benefit Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club of America, and let me just say...this wasn't your mother's old Tupperware party.

Glenn and I showcase the latest blue bowls by Tupperware. The club was decorated with colorful stacks of them, all on beautifully backlit risers. Very nice. I even made a few purchases: The Vent 'N Serve 5 pc Set and multicolor Servalier Bowl Set. (Can't wait to receive my delivery!) Coco was also nice enough to give me a stack of bowls on display in the VIP area (thanks, Coco!) Oh, and there was generous goodie bag, too. I'm officially a fan of Tupperware.
Earlier that evening, Glenn and I also stopped by Leffot, a Greenwich Village boutique on Christopher Street, where man-about-town Patrick Macdonald was hosting the opening reception of an exhibit by artists Robin Joy and Sok Song. The show, which was held in the gallery of the boutique, was a wonderful fantasy world of graphic art and origami. This is an origami tree that was in the corner of the gallery. It may not look like much here, but if you take a look closer...
...You'd see the intricacy of the drawings--all hand done (and I'm told with no eraser!).
