Swanky Party

cocktail bar tree
Isn't swanky one of the best words in the English language?  It makes me think of cocktails served straight up and waxed hair and red lipstick - all of which were present in abundance (ok, maybe not the waxed hair, there seemed to be an inordinate number of men with shaved heads) at the Mad Men themed party I attended Friday night.  

I can't tell you how fun it was to be in a room of gorgeous people who had each put forth some effort in their appearances - what a pleasure.  Then, factor in a Manhattan/martini bar, elegant passed hors d'oeuvres and a beautiful setting... Well, it was a lovely evening.  That  Matt Baumgartner really knows how to throw a party.

  1. Thanks, Sylvia! I'm happy you had a good time and I'm glad you could make it. You looked amazing... best legs in the Capital Region. :)

  2. I had a great time, Matt, and can't wait for the next event. Hope you like the Malbec. XO
