SPiN + Sunset @ The Standard New York- 05.19.09

pingpong0.jpg Sinking into my bed barely conscious, debating what to show you before i give in and pass out… been quite the night of wandering, but the most bizarre and not so design week related event this evening brought me back to those awesome Artek Shigeru Ban chairs i showed you… only instead of being on a tour… this was the The Standard SPiN New York Classic - for those (like me) who know little about the ping pong world - here is the SPiN bio: “SPiN New York is a 13,000 square foot ping pong social club on Park Avenue in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. The club offers unparalleled table tennis courts with Olympic quality cushioned flooring and 17 individual tables, including a stadium-like center court. In addition, SPIN New York houses a pro shop, lounge, bar, private room sponsored by Fred Perry and over a dozen internationally known professional coaches and players who are available for private and group instruction.” Intense, right? Did you know Susan Sarandon is a huge ping pong lover?

Anyhow, in addition to this party of a ping pong classic (don’t get me wrong, there were some there extremely serious about the sport, and alongside were many party goers and an open bar) - the sunset out on the deck and in the background was absolutely stunning. Jaw dropping to say the least… so check out the many pics of this scene on the next page!

Wow! very, very, interesting. This is magazine article worthy , down to the photos. Great coverage and an awesome mix of the unusual( ping pong+ The Standard+ Party/Live Dj). It must have been a cool chilled, fun ambiance.

Going by the pictures it looks like the scenery of The Standard NY beats the one here Sunset blvd.
