Despite Monday night's blustery conditions, Gothamist stopped by the Beauty Bar Monday night for the The LVHRD Organization's Science & Beauty Pre-Party, where creatives dressed in lab coats stood sipping beers while waiting for manicures. In January, The LVHRD Foundation hosted the Master-Disaster Architect Duel and in two weeks, on March 14th, will stage the "Science vs. Beauty: Battle of the Minds" at an as-of-yet undisclosed location.

Aimed at joining together creative minds, leaders, and go-getters, Gothamist saw beautiful bonds form between bands and video artists, designers and writers, architects and photographers.
