Muggy weather did not mar Kylie Jenner's 18th birthday bash at a suburban Montreal water park yesterday. With temperatures close to the 40C/104F mark, enough for Environment Canada to deliver a heat advisory, some 8,000 people spent between $60 and $150 each to party in the vicinity of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians member at Pointe-Calumet's Beachclub. The reality television star's appearance fee for the event was reportedly between $100,000 and $200,000—enough, certainly, to dissuade Jenner to skip last night's Teen Choice Awards.
Jenner arrived at 5:15 p.m., some 90 minutes late, via helicopter and speedboat. The social media personality did a requisite meet-and-greet and a few interviews, then absconded to her VIP lounge after a costume change to presumably, and legally, enjoy a few alcoholic beverages. As promised, Jessika Ménard, the co-owner of Le Cozy Café and Cakes par Haute Couture in Hudson, created a $3,000 birthday cake suitably extravagant for Kim Kardashian's sister. Said cake was promptly obliterated (scroll to bottom for proof).
Later, Jenner took the party to Montreal's Harlow supper club—the same restaurant that food critic Lesley Chesterman eviscerated last week with this line: "How sad, I thought, to think this glitzy-on-the-outside-but-drab-on-the-plate restaurant might end up being the impression tourists walk away with of our city’s renowned food scene." Harlow's sister supper club, Time, hosted Kardashian hanger-on Scott Disick this past April. Beachclub's next high profile guest? Justin Bieber, on August 22.
