It was a packed house last night when Milk Studios teamed up with GQ to celebrate the sexy mag's June issue featuring images from photographer Ben Watts.  Entitled "wattsup Rio", the photography exhibit honors the upcoming World Cup with bright, colorful images that capture the fun in the sun spirit of Brazil.  Caipirinha's were the cocktail of choice for the evening, straight from the hands of shirtless hardbody mixologists.  

 

The view of these bartenders hard at work from outside alone was enough to keep guests waiting patiently in a line that extended down the block.  It was well worth the wait, for once inside the crowd took advantage of Instagram-worthy backdrops and lively atmosphere.  I can even say this was the first time I've actually witnessed a crowd busting out some serious dance moves in the middle of Milk's gallery, which was totally appropriate thanks to the DJ blasting an infectiously upbeat playlist.
