Here’s the third floor gang tonight, Vinny front and center. After I took this photo, the guys crowd-surfed me over to the bar where I grabbed another St. Pauli Girl and rocked to the tunes of The Grateful Dead. What a summer bash it was!!!
Actually, the evening was predictably tame. I went down to the lobby at 6 – the invitation said 5:30, so I was expecting lots of people there already. Not so, maybe 20. tops. Some were masked. I was not. Within a half hour though, the place got crowded. People mingled inside and outside, drinks and food inside but lots of people took their drink and went outside. I stayed in because it’s still very hot and muggy.
I met a handful of couples. Two doctors who just finished their residency in Atlanta, joining a Westchester practice. An older couple from Scarsdale who sold their home faster than they expected and moved here until they figured out where to move to. I met two Fitness instructors at the next door building LifeTime. All very amiable fun folk.
A few families with young children came but they tended to mingle together so the children could meet and play.
Thankfully no name tags but the downside was I couldn’t locate Vinny.
Overall a nice crowd. The DJ was revving up as I left. I hung out two hours total, just enough to see and be seen, grab free food and wine, and get back to my comfort zone.
I opted not to bring my phone, so sorry folks, no photos. Too cumbersome to carry it and a drink. No one else was taking photos either.
