Wednesday marked the official start of summer, and it sure felt like it. At 97 degrees with a heat index of 110 in NYC, walking out of the apartment was like running into a brick wall.

Thankfully, Coach timed things just right. They threw their annual summer kick-off Tuesday evening [before the insane heat], and this year, it was carnival themed. What better way to celebrate than with great friends, tasty drinks, amazing music and carnival fun, all on the High Line?
