Tim Yap “Upwards” Birthday Party | 71 Gramercy

My friend Tim Yap threw a print on print themed Birthday party at 71 Gramercy (which we all know is the highest point in the metro) perfectly appropriate I think as the the venue suited his new mantra for 2014 which is “Upwards” or as the birthday boy would like to say “Yapwards” Really fun party with lots of familiar faces who were all smiles that night to celebrate Tim’s birthday bash!
