Danny hosted the first of his Danny Clark's Monday Nights events last night, premiering a season-long series where he will host his Giants teammates and the fans who love them for a night filled with hot wings, beers and Monday Night Football in support of his charity, The Danny Clark Foundation. The DCF provides support to underprivileged children through a variety of initiatives and Clark is very hands-on with the cause.
Clark hosted the gamewatch party at The Ainsworth, a just-opened-5-minutes-ago sports bar on West 26th Street, where the entire season's events will be held. The gastropub is literally swimming in HD televisions all playing "the game" while one or two might show an event like the Federer-Del Potro U.S. Open final, if you're lucky.
Fellow New York Giant Ramses Barden was in awe of the "million televisions so you don't have to miss anything" while you make your way to the bar for Coors Light and Svedka cocktails or to the overflowing trays of spicy wings and turkey sliders.
Last night several of Clark's teammates stopped by to support Danny and his cause, including rookie Ramses Barden, Steve Smith, Bryan Kehl and Derek Hagan. Green Bay Packer Sean Jones also hung out with his fellow NFLers at one of the Players Lounge tables.
"Danny's one of those smarter guys you really respect. He's been through a lot and the younger guys can really learn from him," Steve Smith told AGAIG on why he was there supporting his fellow Big Blue.
Project Runway's Kevin Christiana also hung out and enjoyed the football festivities.
Meanwhile, Clark, 32, was the consummate host, making his way around the room to make sure he chatted with all of the fans and other guests supporting his event and his foundation. His Giants teammates were gracious as well, hanging out amongst the crowd and taking the time to chat and take pictures with fans.
Last night's TWO football games and set from DJ Berrie were a bonus, but if the inaugural evening was any indication, the entire series should be a blast for anyone looking for a new scene to enjoy some Monday Night Football.
However, even with the obvious gridiron element, I had to wonder why Danny chose the oft-laid back Monday slot for his parties. In fitting nature to his wise veteran nature, Clark responded, "Tuesdays are the Giants only day off."

With new fall fashion quickly approaching...I consulted my Vineyard Vines Catalog and came across some familiar faces...
There's no hiding from the slumping economy. The recession is here, it's been here and it looks like it will be sticking around for a while longer. New York City is not immune to the effects of this recession. That is why Fashion Week has teamed up with "Fashion's Night Out" , a global initiave to "promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion,". U.S. Vogue and it's international editions have set up fashion extravaganzas in their respective fashion capitals. Obviously, the United State's extravanaza would take place in New York City and what better time to hold a fashion event then during New York City's Fashion Week!
Second only to Finance, Fashion is the next largest sector of industry in New York City. According to
On September 10th, retailers all across the five boroughs will be coming together for Fashion's Night Out. The event will keep its doors open late and will be open to everybody. Unlike the rest of Fashion Week events, a ticket to the event is not needed.
Watch some of your favorite designers and celebrities endorse this great cause below.

It was in mid May of 2003, the day of junior prom. While most girls were worrying about make-up and their prom dress, I had larger issues at hand. I received a phone call that no sixteen year old should receive; I had cancer. My summer was spent in and out of the hospital, getting chemotherapy and radiation treatments for soft tissue sarcoma. I had the love and support from family, friends, and my boyfriend Sean, so I was able to focus and stay positive. It may sound odd, but I was lucky to be 16 and 5'7" when I received the intense treatments. Children who have not gone through their growth spurt often never reach their full height. I became more educated about the effects of treatments during my second battle with cancer. This time around I was diagnosed with AML, a type of leukemia that was the result of my treatments from 5 years prior. I am 21 years old and tiredof seeing so many suffer from cancer, especially children. More research and funding needs to be placed on pediatric cancer. So that every child can be a child.
Since then Jana has passed on and her family and friends have become focused on Jana’s dream. The Jana Piccola Walk 4Love embraces Jana’s dream and is fully focused on raising funds towards pediatric cancer research.

Star Magazine covered JRL's encounter with Brad Pitt....which you can find here. What you don't know is that Justin was paid for the article. What did he do with the money? Well, he didn't purchase bottles in the Hamptons or order another expensive suite from Drew. He donated the money to Brad Pitts charity " The Make it Right" Foundation, to help rebuild New Orleans.
Besides his charitable heart....he is also branching out and dating "non-jews" for the summer. Check out his album Shiksa Summer- I don't know how all these girls fall for this...but it is pretty entertaining.
