NEW YORK, NY. Vanquish your devils. Praise your saviors. Unleash your inner critic in sartorial guise: Storefront for Art and Architecture is again hosting CRITICAL HALLOWEEN, a costume architecture party devoted to the most feared ghost of artistic and architectural production.  Building upon Banality, last year’s theme, this year the organization invites guests to dress as an omnipresent ghost in the world of art and architecture production: Metaphor.  The event will take place on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at The Autumn Bowl in Greenpoint from 10pm until late.

The event will feature a costume contest judged by a jury of notables in the art and architecture world and will include live music, dancing and audio/visual presentations curated by Nuit Blanche New York. Drinks are provided courtesy of Cruzen Rum, Devil’s Cut, Effen Vodka, Grolsch Beer, Hornitos Tequila and Red Stag Black Cherry. The event is sponsored in part by R.D. Rice.
Storefront has created a tumblr of all things Metaphor to ignite the critical discussion around metaphor and inspire costume ideas: http://criticalhalloween.tumblr.com/. 

A post-event online costume competition will also be presented in partnership with DOMUS magazine. To view last year’s online competition, visit: http://www.domusweb.it/critical-halloween-architecture-costume-competition/.

Storefront is also hosting a call for gifs that invites the public to submit animations about this year’s Critical Halloween theme: On Banality, On Metaphor. Gifs should be 640 x 640 pixels and no more than 10 seconds long.  Select gifs will be presented at the event.

Tickets are $100 and include admission, open bar, costume competition enrollment, and a one-year complimentary membership to Storefront. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.storefrontnews.org or by calling 212.431.5795. All proceeds will support Storefront for Art and Architecture’s exhibitions, artist talks, film screenings, conferences and publications.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
