We've never seen as many guys milling around a lingerie store as we did on Friday night. Nothing remotely creepy going on; they were just part of the happy crowd that came to see Tiny Food at Panty Raid. When we arrived at 7:30, the store was already packed. 'Who goes out this early on a Friday night?' we wondered. Jessica Hlavac already seems to have a lot of fans, and for good reason.
Yes, her creations all really were that small. The actual artifacts are things of wonder. The photographs were pretty spectacular, too. (Limited edition prints are for sale for $30.) Even if you missed the party, this show is still totally worth checking out—as is one of the sweetest collections of unmentionable on the East Side. Panty Raid is open Monday through Friday, 11am to 7pm; Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 6pm.
