Looks like downtown's Departure — which was subject to some new chef rumors this weekend on Twitter — is courting the ladies-who-lunch crowd onto its rooftop deck. The Pan-Asian spot atop the Nines Hotel is hosting a party to celebrate all things Sex and the City before the sequel premieres on Memorial Day Weekend. The high-flying cosmopolitan boite spot will pour cocktails, Belvedere cosmos, and Champagne from 7 to 10 pm on May 22; and for those who order a glass of Moët Chandon Champagne, an attached golden charm just might include free tickets to a SATC2 screening. Besides cocktails and chit-chat, this free (no reservations required) girls/gays night out includes a "special outdoor screening" of SATC1 on the west deck of Departure's patio, and prizes will be awarded for the best Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte costumes, as well as the “Best Stanford” and “Best Mr. Big.” Manolo pumps not required, but very much admired and appreciated.
