Movie Premier Reception: Butterflies of Bill Baker - June 29, 2013
On Saturday June 29, 2013, LES hotspot, The DL hosted an intimate reception to celebrate the World Premiere of Director Sania Jhankar's film "Butterflies of Bill Baker."

Bill Baker, a kind, sensitive and content man, enjoys life's simple pleasures, such as tilling his garden or playing with butterflies. His seemingly fulfilling life is disrupted by Pavornocturnus - a night terror disorder that causes Bill to commit violent acts while asleep. His disorder can only be relieved with a unique, dangerous, and mind-altering technology.
Other guests in attendance included Debra Messing, Will Chase's two daughters and his parents. Sterling Jerins was joined by her family including older sister actress Ruby Jerins ("Nurse Jackie"). VH1 "Gossip Table" Personality Delaina Dixon was in attendance, as well.
Guests enjoyed Baked By Melissa cupcakes and fabulous cocktails from The DL.
After the reception guests headed uptown to Hunter College, where the film World Premiered as a part of the Manhattan Film Festival.
