Maxim’s Mega Mystery Mansion

2010 brought TK New York a new and exciting event, Maxim’s Mega Mystery Mansion sponsored by Stride. Taking place in, none-other-than, New Orleans during Mardi Gras, this event was hosted by super model Joanna Krupa. Held at the gorgeous Buckner Mansion, the event was situated just blocks away from the parade route in the Garden District of NOLA. It was an exciting time in New Orleans since the Saints won the Super Bowl and guests were particularly excited when Reggie Bush arrived at the party.

Invited guests were welcomed by the “ridiculously long” 100 foot Stride branded red carpet adorned with masked Stride Models handing out Stride branded Mardi Gras beads. VIP guests were hosted inside the mansion, and dined on Jambalaya, Gumbo, Po-Boys and King Cake. Other guests were hosted in the heated tent, who also dined and enjoyed specialty cocktails by Cazadores and Abita Beer.

The highlight of the evening was when Big Sam and the Funky Nation marched through the tent playing “Who Dat” and other local New Orleans favorites. Led by a Grand Marshall and suited second-line dancers, Big Sam encouraged guests to join the second-line as he marched through the tent and beyond, leading them out of the party and down the block to the St. Charles parade route. As guests exited, they were handed a Stride branded second-line umbrella to enhance the experience and remember the festivities.
