Last night, Zacapa Rum hosted a Dinner Under the Stars on a rainy New York night which brought out Julie Macklowe, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos and Susan Shin to host a dining experience paired with the finest rum tasting at the 620 Loft & Garden. The event supported the Seven Bar Foundation, a non profit dedicated to empowering women through microfinancing. Among the stellar guests dressed in HONOR were powerful women icons Alexandra Lebenthal, Vivienne Tam, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Valesca Guerrand Hermes, Alexandra Lind Rose, Gillian Hearst Simonds, Chiu Ti Jansen, and Fame Game’s very own Tatiana Platt.

Fame Game Exclusive Ticket Giveaway!
Zarkana on June 26th!
Fame Game is pleased to offer 2 pairs of free tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana, for the Tuesday, June 26th performance.
Zarkana is an acrobatic rock opera that blends circus arts with the surreal to create a world where physical virtuosity rubs shoulders with the strange. The story follows Zark, a magician who has lost his powers - and the love of his life - in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats. He runs into the Mutants, four sirens as sinister as they are fabulous, who are determined to divert him from his quest.
Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a slightly twisted musical and acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to festivity and love regained.
Please send an email to email@example.com with “June 26th Ticket Giveaway” in the subject line to win your free tickets to the June 26th performance! Only one submission per person. Winners will be randomly selected and notified on Monday, June 18th. Good luck!
