We interrupt this boring week with a preview of your Friday plans. Seems we have a new kid in town when it comes to party promotion and boy is she setting it off for her coming out party.
Our new contributor Russell Seaver gave us the skinny on Holly Miller. Check it:

You might recognize the Holly Miller as the model for boutiques like South Moon Under or brands like DiBi ties, but she’s not just another pretty face. Holly Miller is also a musician and designer who is currently working on an album for BMG. While her vocals have already been featured on commercials for companies such as Crayola and Werthers, she’s now set to offer her consulting services in the world of event planning.
To celebrate the new venture into nightlife, Holly conjured up one of her favorite things in life — chocolate.
“There’s nothing closer to my heart than chocolate, It’s absolutely delicious! I thought it would be fun to combine it with one of my other favorite things – dance parties,” she told Gutter.
This Friday, March 9th, she’s teamed up with some of the finest local providers of the sweet stuff to bring you an entire floor that will be transformed into a virtual chocolate paradise. A. Kirchmayr Chocolatiers will be providing truffles, while Water for Chocolate Catering is featuring gourmet deserts. Not to mention other surprise treats including Holly’s personally made cake-pops, Swirls© brand cupcakes, and Godiva-infused vodka drinks.
Patrons will need a bit of that sugar-laced energy however, as this event isn’t just about food — it’s also about dancing and partying late into the night.
The music of the evening will be a distinctly modern mix of deep house, nu disco and indie dance, showcasing Holly’s appreciation for a more mature, european-influenced nightlife, “There’s more than a few event planners in Baltimore that go for the easy sell: top 40, commercial radio dance music – I’ve always looked for a little more depth in my music.” Miller said.- Russell Seaver.

How’s THAT for a SHAbang? The cherry on this Friday’s sundae will be a performance by NY’s Morgan Geist of Metro Area and Storm Queen.

“Holly Miller’s Chocolate Party” is being held at the white hot E-Villa venue in the Mt. Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore.
Tickets are available for $10 online, however the price will raise to $15 at the door the night of the event. Only 150 tickets will made available, so it’s recommended that you purchase immediately to secure admission:
