Amie Barbeler proves once again, she can handle any bar, even one with mean girls...
After almost getting arrested (who knew you weren't allowed to wear a mask in a casino?), my date and I arrived at the Dom Pérignon Masquerade Party, only to be pointed and laughed at by one of the classy birds from The Bachelor.
Don't worry about us though; we quickly discovered that the key to mean girl-induced sadness is to mop up your tears with foie gras while binge-drinking 2004 Dom Pérignon Champagne.
As we quaffed the posh champers and worked our way through the assorted appetisers being dished out from award-winning restaurant Sokyo, atmospheric tunes spun by Didier Cohen provided the soundtrack to our night. After we'd had all the glamour, glitz and ditz we could handle, we ripped off the masks, threw our Spanx to the kerb, and went off in search of beer and kebabs. That's my glamour fix for the year…
