Life on Long Island
Back-to-back LI white parties
A quick Web search can easily reveal several recommendations on how to care for white clothing -- and those sort of tips may end up being especially handy for some local clubgoers as there are two back-to-back LI bashes this week asking all potential attendees to show up in their milkiest attire.
The origin of the “white party” is an inexact tale, with various cities, people and groups claiming responsibility and reasons. However, on Long Island in 2014, for the most part parties where the motif involves wearing white from head to toe aren't really aiming for anything but executing a trendy, summer-style theme -- so if you'd like to celebrate the season by donning hue-less duds, there are two late-night opportunities to do so before the weekend arrives -- just remember: wear white, but still dress to impress.
The first will be taking place on Monday, July 21, at the Woodbury Country Club as part of its “Liquid Mondays” gatherings. Starting at 6 p.m., the evening’s scheduled main event is to be an appearance from reality celebrities Teresa Giudice and Dina Manzo, both stars of Bravo TV’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” The Liquid entrance fee is $10 (free for holders of the 2014 VIP member card); for more information, visit woodburycc.com or facebook.com/woodburycc (call 516-633-8963 for VIP seating and bottle service).
As for the second white party, the location will be Chateau Briand in Carle Place (440 Old Country Rd., 516-334-2002) as the long-running “Body English Tuesdays” soiree series throws its annual opaque-outfit-only opportunity on July 22, and it promises the presence of dancers and other entertainers similarly clad. Doors open at 9 p.m. with no cover; visit Body English Tuesdays online at bodyenglishtuesdays.com and facebook.com/bodyenglishtuesdays for further details (call 516-398-8777 for VIP bottle service).
