      A&E Drafts Abstract Prison for \'Breakout Kings\' Launch Party [new York]
      To mark the forthcoming premiere of its new drama series Breakout Kings, A&E hosted a jailhouse-themed reception at Stage 37, putting 236 guests in an environment that echoed the cop-and-convict premise of the TV show. But rather than create an uncomfortably realistic replica of a detention facility for the event on Wednesday, March 2, the network opted to single out specific imagery and disperse those visual elements across the raw, warehouse-like space. The result was a setting more conceptual than overwhelmingly thematic. To design and produce the event, A&E's publicity team tapped MKG, which employed lighting, furniture ...

      National Post columnist Shinan Govani's "Worthy 30" list of Toronto's most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes is a must-read for the city's young social set. So the first edition of the Worthy 30 cocktail party, held February 24 at TIFF Bell Lightbox, was a prime opportunity for sponsor Grey Goose to reach this demographic. But because the evening was billed as a tasteful, exclusive event, they didn't want to hit guests over the head with branding.
