The weather was perfect, the atmosphere was hyped and Chicagoans were wrapped around Venue One; waiting in line to see performances by Erykah Badu, A$AP Rocky, Mayer Hawthorne and special guest appearance by Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte at Hennessy’s “Wild Rabbit’ campaign launch.
Guests waited patiently to get a glimpse of celebrities as they walked the black carpet and posed for the cameras before heading into the event. It was even nice to see Hennessy executives having a great time with the media before heading inside.
As you walked through the doors you entered a soft white room where you were greeted by gorgeous models wearing black dresses and slick back ponytails with a tray of Hennessy cocktails. As the evening progressed one by one the performers took the stage but in between their sets, DJ D-Nice had the crowd grooving non-stop as he did his work on the turn-tables.
All and all this was a great evening filled with the fabulous people in Chicago, unforgettable performances by Erykah Badu, A$AP Rocky, Mayer Hawthorne, the gleaming “gold medal” smile of Ryan Lochte and of course Hennessy “Wild Rabbit”.
My words to the wise…if you ever hear of a Hennessy event coming to your town RSVP… ASAP! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
