Louis Vuitton Handbag
Tonight’s prize: a Louis Vuitton Thames PM, which retails for $955 at louisvuitton.com

I’m Facebook friends with the very suave party promoter Vincent Anzalone of Genuine Chicago (we occasionally run into one another in real life as well), and a particular set of his status updates caught my eye last week. In a bid to get women into the River North nightclub Cuvée, he was dangling a Louis Vuitton purse as bait.

“Giving away a Louis Vuitton handbag! Already tons of girls here!” he posted via FourSquare on September 8th at 11:17 p.m.—followed by: “Guys, get here. Trust me,” at 11:26.

The trick worked so well, he’s doing it again tonight. The first 50 women to arrive at Cuvée by 11 p.m. will get a key, one of which will unlock a box containing the coveted logo—this week, a Louis Vuitton Thames PM. Per Vincent: “If you’re a girl and you want a key and a shot at a Louis Vuitton bag, get there early. If you’re a guy, get there REALLY early.”

Does the blatantly materialistic, cat-and-mouse aspect of this ploy bother anyone? Nah. It’s back-to-school season, and everyone needs a new bag, right? Go get it, ladies.

 

GO: Cuvée (308 W. Erie St., enter via the alley) is open from 11 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. tonight with no cover. The first 17 parties of six or more women who RSVP to info@genuinechicago.com will receive a table reservation and a complimentary bottle of Champagne. For other reservations, call or text 312-672-2125.
