Before the heat could fade from the steamy 50 Shades of Grey, Sullivan's Steakhouse put its on spin on the novel's theme Friday night with a salute to the end of H-Town's red hot summer with a sizzling "50 Shades of Red" bash. More than 250 party boys and red hot mamas made the scene.
Sullivan's GM Zaidi Syed and regional manager Arthur Mooradian treated guests to a sea of libations including Christian Grey's favorite — Moet & Chandon Rosé Imperial — plus Belvedere specialty cocktails appropriately named Charlie Tango, Inner Goodess and Laters, Baby.
Hot cars were included in the equation as Momentum Audi's Jared Lang showcased the Audi R8 luxury sportscar and members of the Houston Ferrari Club displayed a sweet collection of red Ferrari's.
