Momofuku Summer Party with the Remix Project

Despite the call for showers earlier on in the day, the weather was perfect come evening on Wednesday, August 7th, on the terrace of the Shangri-La for Momofuku’s Summer Party, hosted by the Remix Project.

The Remix Project is described as a youth-led urban program that is designed to help youth in under-served communities follow their passions and pursue their dreams in creative professions, our to further their formal education.

Among other things, The Remix Project offers a 5,000 sq. ft. facility, with a full recording studio, photography studio, business development centre, creative arts lab, video editing suite plus more, as well as a range of mentors who are relevant industry professionals and regular workshops that bring in industry professionals.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the City Life Film Project, a programming stream of the Remix Project. The short film is dedicated to helping young people get a leg up in the film and television industry.

Refreshingly, this wasn’t your typical luxury hotel charity event (though we do enjoy those too), and the event took on a more casual feel that was reflected in the fashionable yet not over-the-top dress (we assume many guests came straight from post-work dinner) and the relaxed vibe. The music by Phantom Signal and the Soul Proprietor kept guests mixing and mingling late despite it being a weekday.

Of course, there was food. The crowd enjoyed food and drinks (including the memorable sake slushies) by the beloved Momofuku, which, as you will recall, opened in September 2012 and has been a hot option for date night, client dinners, and evenings out with friends ever since. Momofuku Toronto’s three-story glass cube is home to Noodle Bar, Nikai, Daisho, Shoto and the newly opened Milk Bar.
