I want to go to there: Jazz Age Lawn Party in NYC this weekend

by Debbie Stoller

If you watched Mad Men a couple of weeks ago, you may have been wowed by Pete Campbell’s surprising ability to cut the rug at his boss’s twenties-themed garden party:

Well, if you live in NYC and harbor a desire to go to a similar type of party, including Charleston dance lessons, vintage cocktails, live music, old 78 records played on an old time-y gramophone, and, zomg, a PIE BAKING CONTEST, then you’re in luck, because this weekend sees hte return of the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governer’s Island. Best of all, it only costs an Abe’s Cabe !


 More details and video (featuring a Charleston-ing ex BUST Intern) after the cut…

I really wish I could go, looks like it’s gonna be the cat’s meow! Here’s some video from a similar party earlier this summer:
