Musical Chairs & The Winner's Circle

In celebration of our 20th Anniversary, we hosted an epic game of musical chairs back in June. On June 20th at 20 o'clock (yes we're going '20' crazy this year), the battle for king of the chair was fought on the lawn in two stages. Almost 400 people competed in the initial round for the chance to gain entry into the Winner's Circle. The final twenty danced, walked and elbowed their way into Musical Chairs Glory. The event was hosted by comedian Sara Barron with stop and go tunes by DJ Stewey Decimal. Enjoy some highlight photos below. You'll see action and heart break, as well as a few scuffles for chairs. We were lucky to have volunteer participants from some of our favorite partners including HSBC and Mitchell's New York, as well as a real life referee to call the action.

The folks at Time Out New York were also kind enough to put together a short video on this inaugural event. Check it out, and start sizing up the competition... this 2012 hit may become a recurring classic.
