Where: ABC Carpet and Home

What: This year’s Art Production Fund Gala kicks off in honor of Yoko Ono and Richard Pandisco. We predict an evening of subversive art and debauchery (that is, if last year’s “Urban Hoedown” theme is anything to go by). This year, the gala will ring in the “I Dream of..” theme at the ‘house of dreams’ that is ABC Carpet and Home. Just make sure you fall asleep in your own bed once the night comes to an end.
