Fair and Honest Appraisals from The Bumbys

Ain’t no party like a Standard pool party, especially when The Bumbys are in the house! The Brooklyn based duo took time out of their jetsetting lives to attend last Saturday’s FoundTrack and WNDRWRKS pool party at The Standard, Hollywood, and the bathing Hollywood beauties couldn’t get enough.

(The Bumbys, being very fair and thoroughly honest)

For those of you who don’t read the New York Times, The Bumbys are anonymous performance artists Gill & Jill Bumby. They provide “Fair and Honest Appraisals of Your Appearance” with nothing more than their typewriters and charming wit.  The concept is simple and completely irresistible.  

Never one to shy away from the spotlight, our very own dashing and debonair Stan D’Arde took his turn under the Bumby’s gaze.  Here’s Jill Bumby’s fair and honest appraisal of him: 

You have a sort of Jack Kerouac meets a young Jacques Cousteau motif. There’s something of the washed up bon vivant that takes great pleasure in forgotten affairs, bathtubs and Bach concertos, and being a bit of a wonderful bastard who’s best over cheeseburgers and whisky, rather than fine dining with the relatives. I’d like to steal a yacht with you, and idle the hours doing boozy charades while giving each other secret hickies. Overall Rating: 9.6" - xo, Jill Bumby

Seriously, have you ever read a more accurate description in your life? 

We Gots Lots of 4th of July Plans

Get ready folks! We are entering another weekend of visual wonder with 4th of July weekend festivities. What better way for a group bond then getting together and looking up into the sky with a lot of communal “ooohs” and “aaaaahs”.

The Standard has a few shindigs going on at our various hotels in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. Our locations are perfect with “money shot” views to behold all the magic.

Here’s a little rundown…

The Standard, New York

Once again, Le Bain will be hosting its memorable 4th of July party, one of the most coveted rooftops to enjoy the fireworks. The party starts at 3pm and runs through 2am with a load of dancing, cocktails, and fireworks simultaneously sparkling the sky.  Also, don’t forget your swimsuit - you might just want to dip in our hot tub during your firework viewing. Oh, and if you do forget, you know to get your pair in our poolside vending machines.

Another little note to all our friends — be mindful that we have one 1 stunning roof and New York City is very big, so we recommend coming early, getting your drink on, and picking a sexy corner early to watch the fireworks.

The Standard, Miami

On Sunday, there’s Lazy Sunday BBQ with $6 Picanha, Caipirinha, Beer and Drinks. The festivities begin from 2pm - 8pm.

Beautiful People

Spring is in the air and you know what that means?  Yes! Time for Paper Magazine’s annual Beautiful People issue!  It’s Paper’s round up of young actors, musicians, artists, designers, and the generally fabulous types who inspire them.  Paper says, “Don’t hate them because they’re beautiful. And talented. And downright amazing in every way.”  Is there any better way to honor such a stellar group of people then with a rocking party?

Paper Magazine’s 14th annual Beautiful People party, co-hosted by Guess, was held at The Standard, Hollywood on Tuesday night.  And talk about beautiful, the star studded affair ran like a who’s who list of Hollywood lovelies. 

Rony’s Photobooth fed everyone’s ego with instant snapshots and DJ’s Valida and Josh Madden kept the beat.  As a special treat, Keri Hilson, one of Paper’s Beautiful People, closed the private event with a performance that rocked the house.

Stan D’aily Distraction - Girl On Drugs

Our friends over at DListed! are constantly killing us softly, and they for sure did not disappoint with this video of a girl enjoying herself at a summer pool party.  I have a feeling martinis aren’t her cocktail of choice!
