FASHION DISTRICT—Quarterly lifestyle mag Undo-Ordinary is celebrating its brand new issue with a launch party at The Ace (929 S Broadway) this Thursday night. Run by the NYC-based fitness pop-up of the same name, the publication has focused its most recent effort around a theme of nature and body, and features top contributors in fields like fashion, beauty, and health. The festivities start at 8:30pm in the hotel's Upstairs Lounge, and are fully free and open to the public—as long as you're of drinking age, that is. The bar will be creating its usual tasty concoctions and J*Davey and friends will be providing the playlist.
