Remembering Mad Men and Mad Men Monday
We just celebrated out 10th birthday, so to celebrate, throughout the year, we'll be sharing some fun posts from the past. In 2009 and 2010, we had a weekly event at the Mayfair Hotel bar called Mad Men Monday. I spent most of this weekend watching the Mad Men marathon which is being played in anticipation of Sunday night's finale of Mad Men. Here's a little blast from the past, one of our Mad Men Mondays, which happened to be a birthday party, too. Each week it was a fun group of friends and you never knew who would pass through the happy hour event. This post is from August 31, 2010.
And here's a link to all of the Mad Men photos and stories from that time that were posted here in the Grapevine.
In our little reality show world, known as the Grapevine, the characters all meet up on Mondays at Mad Men Monday at the Mayfair Hotel, the only difference is that there is no drama here since it's all friends and not many or any frenemies.
You'll see Daisy from the Bed Race or Felice from the Bookstore or Monty from the Arts Festival and it's all one, nice meetup once a week for friends to mix and mingle. Last night was no exception, we met for drinks as usual (I had 7&7's last night), but we also celebrated Lili Dones' birthday.
Lili's birthday was actually the day before, but we like to celebrate birthdays at Mad Men Mondays, we have had quite a few. Steven Anton Rehage got Lili a great gift in the form of gold earrings, which she had been admiring. You'll notice Betty and Don Draper on a Mad Men episode on the tv in the background.
Daisy Lewis and Richard Issa flank Lili.
