Channeling Morticia Addams, Kylie Jenner spent Friday night celebrating the opening of Sugar Factory American Brasserie at The Hotel Victor.
Hundreds of fans waited on line allegedly as early as 3 a.m. to get a glimpse of the 17-year-old reality star at the opening. She danced to the tunes of DJ Irie while her fans took selfies and SnapChat videos with her before she headed downstairs for a high-calorie dessert.
“It is so much fun to be at the grand opening of Sugar Factory in Miami,” said Kylie, who stayed at the Versace Mansion. “I get to meet so many of my fans and I love sugar!”
Former NSYNC member Chris Kirkpatrick was there on Saturday where he and his friends enjoyed Chicken and Waffles and a Lollipop Passion Cocktail at the bar.
Never miss a local story.
Sporting a very revealing black satin, low-cut dress, the television star held a Kylie and Kendall Black Diamond Couture Pop, part of the signature series couture pops of Sugar Factory.
“They’re glittery,” said Kylie. “So something like a fun, party dress best matches it.”
Sugar Factory has stores in Las Vegas, New York City, Brooklyn, Chicago, Orlando, Bahrain and now in the heart of Ocean Drive.
A brasserie and a retail store, Sugar Factory is home to the legendary King Kong Sundae, Berry Bliss Goblet, snow cones and a variety of candy.
“I love the sundaes, and of course the lollipops,” said Kylie. “I’m obsessed with the gumballs too.”
Kylie and fans were enjoying music played by DJ Irie, who was also celebrating the 11th annual Irie Weekend (see “Scene in the Tropics”).
“Talk about a sweet weekend,” said Irie. “Stevie D [husband of Charissa Davidovici, owner of Sugar Factory] was actually the first person to book me in Las Vegas, so he is a very special person to me. I could not miss out on the grand opening.”
The following night, former NSYNC member Chris Kirkpatrick was there enjoying Chicken and Waffles and a Lollipop Passion Cocktail at the bar with friends.

THE WHEEL DEAL
Lots of local peeps on the tube: NBC’s reality competition series, America’s Got Talent continues auditions 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Judges Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel will see if 17-year-old Weston native Wesley Williams — one half of unicycle duo The One Wheel Wonders (with Ella Warner) — has what it takes to go the distance, or at least another round.
To accommodate acts that are too big to be contained in a theater, AGT will bring the show outdoors at the Fairplex in Pomona, California, to showcase some of the more dangerous acts.
Love body art? Spike TV’s hit original series Ink Master returns for a sixth season starting 10 p.m. Tuesday. Eighteen tattoo artists from around the country will battle it out in permanent ink — and sometimes with each other — for a $100,000 grand prize, an editorial feature in Inked and, of course, the bragging rights.
This season’s twist: Contestants come with their own personal tattoo rival — their master or apprentice.
Three castmates are from the area: Chris Blinston, from No Hard Feelings in Coral Springs; and Tyler Nolan and Marisa LaRen, both from Vatican Tattoos in Fort Lauderdale.
Expect a series of challenges designed to test the artists’ technical skills, as well as their on-the-spot creativity, using a “human canvas.” Judges include series host Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction) and world renowned tattoo artists Chris Nunez from Miami Ink.
