Some Chicago special guests were on the scene Thursday night (7/21), to celebrate the launch of the new Hennessy V.S Limited Edition Bottle by renowned tattoo artist Scott Campbell, at 1st Ward Chop Shop (2033 W North Ave). The evening which included complimentary Hennessy libations such as ‘The Autograph’ ‘Loop Life’ & ‘The Inspiration’ throughout, was made even better with music and performance by DJ Ruckus who was accompanied by fiancé, Victoria’s secret model Shanina Shaik (she was chillin in the cut). Chicago native, Lamorne Morris who plays Winston on Fox’s hit sitcom New Girl, was also on the scene chilling with Campbell, along with some Chicago influencers including Fakeshoredrive’s Andrew Barber, Hennessy ambassador and WGCI radio host Tone Kapone, RSVP Gallery’s Isimeme “Easy” Otabor to name a few.
