The Young Members Circle of the Museum of the City of New York held their annual Big Apple Bash on the Museum’s Fifth Avenue terrace, which overlooks Central Park. Although the event was limited to guests between the ages of 21 to 39, I did spot one elderly geezer who jumped into a photo. As a definite cougar, it was smorgasbord of hottie young guys! And since they said that attire was festive, I pulled out my favorite Amy Downs party hat!
All of the decked out attendees were tons of fun! Everyone was befuddled and shared a brief giggle over the trays and trays of bread that inexplicably served as the only passed hor d’ouerves! It started to feel like communion! Fortunately, some cookies and sweets were served later in the evening and we were sent home with some candy apple rings to raise our flagging blood sugars.
DJ Jake kept everyone rocking the terrace with a solid blend of old school jams. Once young guy exuberantly accosted me and tried to create an actual “that girl at the party” scandalous moment!
The bottom floor of the Museum was opened so after a couple of Amstel Lights, I checked out the wonderful Dutch Seen: New York Rediscovered exhibition. A consummate animal lover (I stop for every dog on the street!), I was particularly taken with the beautiful photos of stray dogs from NYC shelters taken by Charlotte Dumas. They just look so noble and it just made me love animals all the more. I highly recommend a trip to the Museum to check this exhibition out. And on the 23rd of August at 2pm, Ms. Dumas will be at the Museum to discuss her photos. In addition, dog handlers from the Animal Control and Care of New York will be on hand to discuss their work and introduce some dogs that are available for adoption. This will be a hard one for me because I know I am going to just want to bring all of them home. But Dinah Washington Cat would not be having any of that![salbumphotos=2,72,6,n,n,picasa_order]
