Aside from the Pinot Grigio, Merlot, chocolate dipped strawberries and chocolates that I sent to my guests; a private “Martini Tasting” at the ice-topped Martini Bar was set up for them by yours truly. They had no idea what they were in for. Kattrax dominated the bar with 25 set ups of 6 martini glasses at each place. With whistle blowing and mixology antics jumpin’ off, excitement was in the air for this very private, exclusive affair. They tasted apple, pear, classic, watermelon, raspberry and sunset martinis. They mixed and mingled with one another and socialized with their new acquaintances as they strolled by. The real highlight of the tasting was “The Flight” which was the bartender standing elevated over the bar and pouring martinis simultaneously into 13 glasses without spilling one drop. A good time was had by all in attendance.
Three days later our private cocktail party was scheduled on the top deck in the Sky Observation Lounge. This was our signature “All White” party and yes, they showed up and showed out. Champagne, wine, scotch, amaretto sours or whatever one desired was free flowing. The DJ was playin’ all the jammin’ joints and Joey got the party started right with the wobble, Cupid and Casper shuffle. He had everybody up and dancing, complete with a soul train line and Barbara D taking it as low as she could go. June was still celebrating her birthday and just could not stop dancing. It was a wild time —lots of laughs and good old fashioned fun.
