Last Friday, Nov. 12, Check It Out Girls Magazine celebrated the launch of its newest issue, number 16, in style. The party, co-sponsored by etnies Girl, kicked off with dinner at Tokio Restaurant in Hollywood, and then moved next door to Beauty Bar for more socializing and dancing. etnies Girl team rider Lauren Perkins, whose photograph appears in issue 16, was there to celebrate, as was former skater and current Emerica apparel designer Saecha Clarke, who is interviewed in the magazine about what it was like to skate in the early '90s. etnies Girl pro Elissa Steamer is also interviewed in issue 16 and, although she wasn't able to make it to the party since she was in New York, she was there both in spirit and on film—everyone was mesmerized by the loop of Elissa's new skate footage that was playing at Beauty Bar. The party was a great success, with skaters and friends of the magazine and etnies Girl in attendance. Better yet, everyone at the packed party was happy to receive etnies Girl totes filled with goodies as they left.
