Mayor Eric Adams partying for his birthday, Fashion Week

It’s been a busy week for Eric Adams, the party-loving mayor of the city celebrating his 62nd birthday and New York Fashion Week.

A source tells Vidak For Congress exclusively that the city’s mayor was celebrating his birthday by attending a number of bashes.

We were told that a minor affair, attended by about 30 guests, took place in a building that is also home to Chelsea Clinton, though she was nowhere to be seen — with friends including NYC Commissioner for International Affairs Edward Mermelstein, CEO of Silverstein Properties Marty Burger, Real Deal founder Amir Korangy and Zero Bond expert Scott Sartiano.

Adams also took the stage at the Rise Up New York City concert in Staten Island on his actual birthday, September 1.

According to the Daily Beast, Adams would be hosting a birthday party at the members-only club, The Ned, with guests including French Montana, David Blaine and Travis Scott. Unfortunately, Vidak For Congress is ​​told that this is not true and that Adams has only been to the club once for a tour.

Richie Akiva of the Ned and the owner of Adams’ favorite club Zero Bond, Sartiano, used to have 1Oak together before they got into a fight. While we hear the report is inaccurate, we love that it reads like a perfect piece of fanfiction about our club boy mayor: “They’re fighting over Eric Adams like he’s a Victoria’s Secret model,” a source told the pub .

Adams’ communications director tells us, “The mayor only had one birthday party, with a small group of friends. The mayor is often out late after dinner with tours of the subway, visiting shelters for the homeless and walking around the city. He believes this is a 24-hour city and we need a 24-hour mayor.”

Adams hosted his own bash at Gracie Mansion with Vogue editor Anna Wintour — whom he called “an angel who wears Prada” — and other fashion biggies on Thursday.

“New York is as cool as it gets in Gracie Mansion with these awesome folks with swagger,” Adams reportedly told a crowd including designers Tommy Hilfiger, Tory Burch, Thom Browne, Diane von Furstenberg, Wes Gordon, Michael Kors, Aurora James, Stacey Bendet and Cynthia Rowley.

Adams also praised the industry as “a $600 million juggernaut this week alone,” noting that it’s “twice as much as if we had the Super Bowl here.”

Also in the room rubbing elbows with the celebrity groupie Mayor included models Emily Ratajkowski, Karlie Kloss, Shalom Harlow, CFDA head Steven Kolb and Andrew Bolton of the Met Museum.

Adams was at the Met Gala in May in a tuxedo that read “End Gun Violence” and sat front row at a Michael Kors show last season. Then he will be the guest of honor cutting pasta ribbons for a new Serafina Express.

Adams does not shy away from placing the party in a political party. The New York Times reported that the mayor said, “People thought this city was a 9-to-5 city. It was just a city in flannel suits. And suddenly January 2022 comes and the mayor comes in and says he’s the mayor of the nightlife.”

Vidak For Congress has covered Adams’ countless nights out at clubs like Zero Bond and Aman NY and his attendance at celebrity events such as the release of French Montana’s album, Jennifer Lopez’s Tribeca Festival party and hip-hop’s 49th birthday. with KRS One. He also recently hung out with Paris Hilton and friends at a private club in Los Angeles.

Another source tells Vidak For Congress exclusively that the recent NY Times report on the mayor’s nighttime habits, which said he went out as many as 22 times in a month, was actually too low. We hear that he was out almost every night, but the reporters who wanted to follow the mayor went home around 11 p.m., while the mayor was sometimes in town until later.
