Here’s another big time release party—and really, if you’re going to throw a launch party, why not go for the hippest party you can assemble? HOTROCITY—a hip new site that features locally made accessories and clothing—takes over Public Functionary and is throwing a huge shindig that wins our Scene + Be Seen Award for the weekend. You’ll be able to check out some of the wares (we’re keen on this FuckIt necklace) and original visuals from the site, as well as get turnt with DJ Garrison Grouse and Party Science. Friday, 8 PM. Free.—Trish O’Leary
