The beautiful people turned out for 360West’s launch party last week at Grace in Fort Worth.
The slick new mag was previewed at a cocktail party at the new downtown restaurant where everyone and everything just oozed cool. The new magazine is masterminded by Jerry Scott and Meda Kessler, the brains and talentÂ behind the Star-Telegram’s “Indulge” publication. PublisherÂ Jerry was kicked to the curb (hey, is he in good company or what?) and editorial director Meda opted out of the newspaper roller coaster, so the two have teamed to create a magazine covering–as its cover says–fashion, culture, home, food, travel and people.
People at this soiree were worthy of coverage. Well dressed, well heeled, well connected and well read. The party was crawling with media types that night including Mark Lowry, another Star-Telegram alum you can check out now at theaterjones.com, and power hitters such as hiz honor,Â FortÂ Worth MayorÂ Mike Moncrief.
Grace owner Adam Jones, the former manager of Del Frisco’s, was overseeing the party as hors d’oeuvres were passed. Loved the “surf and turf” appetizer–aÂ shrimp-and-steak-cube combo on a skewer. And the cosmos weren’t bad, either.
Check out the new magazine…clever featuresÂ onÂ bald guys’ shavingÂ tips and a collection of shopping finds…you’ll like it as much as I liked the party.
