ONE OF HOUSTON'S most anticipated annual bashes, CityBook's Sexy Party, returned after a year off due to Covid — and the thrill wasn't gone!


Hosted at the new Heights House Hotel, the hip renovated motel in the Heights, and its funky in-house bar Space Cowboy, which is quickly developing a cult following, The Sexy Party celebrated the release of the magazine's annual Sexy Issue. About 200 friends of the magazine, influencers and assorted other PYTs came out to sip watermelon-mint cocktails provided by event sponsor Basil Hayden bourbon.

Per The Sexy Party's custom, a revealing fashion show produced by Todd Ramos and featuring Page Parkes models was the evening's main event. Some 18 models strutted the runway, cut through the crowd, in swimwear, underwear and seasonal loungewear from Frock Shop, Manready Mercantile, Paula Callejas, Privilege Swim and superstar Houston-based designer Chloe Dao. LG Event Entertainment and Production provided sound and light effects.

Guests also had an opportunity to support the Omega House HIV/AIDS hospice, a program of Avenue 360 Health & Wellness. A sexy staycation package including a weekend at Heights House, meals at Space Cowboy, tickets to an Alley Theatre show and travel around town compliments of Alto was offered up as a prize for a raffle. Alto also generously gave gift cards to everyone who purchased a raffle ticket.

Sexy types in the crowd included Olympic multi-gold-medalist Kerron Clement, hip-hop artist Youth Soul Love, former Houston Dynamo soccer pro Bobby Boswell, Suffers frontwoman Kam Franklin, Presidential chef and TV hunk Adrian Perez, celeb doc Vanessa Barrow and American Idol top-ten star Uché, who was spotted shooting tequila with the models after the fashion show.
