What: Night in Havana.

Where: Bar Bleu.

The scoop: Bar Bleu was indeed blue, awash in clouds of cigar smoke during the eighth annual Cuban-themed mid-summer bash. Guys and dolls, many in fedoras, all in cool summer chic threads, partied as if they were already on the streets of old Havana. Mojitos and margaritas flowed and, yes, the stogies were Cuban.

DJ Senega spun the tunes while the 1,000 generous partygoers  (the biggest haul yet for the annual event) filled the coffers on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Among highlights: Fidel Castro aka David King Jr. provided a 1982 Cadillac Fleetwood limo for the step and repeat, "Havana Cigar Girl" Carmen Patricia Martinez brought the cigars, a special appearance by Optimus Prime, and late night arrival of Minion.

Who: Stacy and John Andell, Andrea Simmons, David Rafferty, Katherine Sin, Shiva Rafferty,  Sahar Rahmani, Tien Davis, Stephanie Valentz, Minda Post, Tedman Brown, Jed English, Tanner Atkinson, Isabella Dao, Amber Maelin, and Fidel Castro aka David King.
