Paris Hilton will be on South Beach to introduce new music Saturday evening, the same night actress Audrina Patridge will host a party a few blocks away at the Raleigh Hotel. Does that sentence make you feel uncomfortably nostalgic?
It could have been written nearly a decade ago, a golden age of a certain brand of South Beach glamour that seems so distant now. When we all partied with Paris, Lindsay Lohan, Wilmer Valderrama, Leonardo DiCaprio, Dennis Rodman, Patridge and her girls from “The Hills” (Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, Lo Bosworth). When we watched Mark Ronson DJ at Opium Garden the same night Sam Ronson was at the Astor Hotel and Tommy Lee was spinning at Mynt. When we went to Rumi, Crobar and Automatic Slims. When we … Whoa! Sorry.
Paris, who has always had a special place in the collective heart of South Beach cognoscenti, will be at Wall Miami Beach, the lounge in the W South Beach (2201 Collins), to DJ and debut her Cash Money Records single “High Off My Love.” The red carpet begins at 11:30 p.m. The underwriter is Belvedere. Just like old times. Info and RSVP: 305-938-3130, WallMiami.com.
Audrina, most recently seen as host of the NBC travel show “1st Look,” will be at the luxe Raleigh (1775 Collins) for the official launch party for Klique, an intriguing social-media app that links small groups of friends. The outdoor gathering is from 8 to 11 p.m., and will be preceded by a red carpet. Admission is invite-only, but Klique is offering entry to the first 100 people to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
