For its fourth annual White Party, the New Museum chose a nautical theme, with sailors and err, wenches, peppering the otherwise bleached crowd in the museum’s basement and rooftop spaces at 235 Bowery, Wednesday night.

While attendees wore vanilla, the drinks were nothing but—a chili-infused tequila by Milagro made the evening’s signature drink, a Man Overboard, into a spicy yet sweet aphrodisiac.

The museum estimates that 800 revelers soaked up cocktails, art gossip and the exhibitions, with DJ Lily Vanilli providing a “Yacht Rock” themed soundtrack.
