PYTs packed Midtown’s sprawling, still-new Proof Bar + Patio to toast the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, at an event sponsored by Verizon and Houston magazine.
Partygoers took in views of Downtown skyscrapers from the huge, twinkling-light-lined second-floor deck, and enjoyed cocktails from the place’s urbane, loungey seating areas of bold red. The Tito’s Smoking Gun, made with Tito’s vodka, lemon juice, muddled cucumber and jalapeno and rimmed with spicy Tajin seasoning, was a nice way to cool off on the warm early-summer evening.
Between tipples, tech-savvy guests tried their hand at winning a new white Z10. Those who tweeted with the hashtag #BlackBerryZ10Houston were entered in a drawing. It was pretty Shireen Hadi who won the phone!
