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.
