Live out loud and startups with beta launch

The night began with live out loud role model social at deutsch. The platters were stuffed with tasty bites and pomegranate martini/wine to wash it down. Desserts were mini cupcakes from Soho favorite Baked by Melissa. I was surprised that some had never tasted heaven in a bite <3 Food aside live out loud is an awesome cause. They actively support the lgbt teens. They teach lessons each designed to provide a community and a sense of acceptance for lgbt teen. I was happy to sign up to volunteer as a speaker. I believe in this cause immensely and was happy to see innovative ideas from live out loud. Check out the link below for more information:http://www.liveoutloud.info/ I arrived at 450 west 31 street for NY Beta Launch Event check out their site http://nybeta.org/ . The event was held on the penthouse floor at an event space called Studio 450. The choice of venue was excellent providing beta goers views of NYC skyline. I arrived and was warmly greeted by a young woman wearing a salmon colored dress. There were two bar areas set up allowing people to actually drink without the hassle..There was wine, prosecco and beer available. A food station with cheese, fruits, dips, and crudités was available. I indulged in both before heading to the startups. What is a startup?? It's an app for your iPhone or android phone that serves a function. My favorites were get a game and taap it. Get a game is an app where you can search and join sports matches. The handsome gentleman who looked like an older Roman ;) showed me how it worked. Taap it is an application that you can browse and purchase food from your favorite restaurant check it out: http://taap.it/m/home The best feature is the ability to take a photo of an item you want to sell and place it for others to see, take that eBay. The best part it's free :) I voted for both for best startups. Both apps are available via the app store for iPhone for free as for androids you are on your own.. I took home a free flashlight, two t-shirts, reusable bag and a free bottle of Chardonnay (thank you cute white guy for being my lookout). I am working the Das Ocktoberfest tomorrow and then heading to poisson le rouge for CMJ Showcase presented by Stoli. As for Gotham beauty and genesis mag party, I feel asleep. Stay tuned for Saturday's event coverage. FF
