My husband's college roommate (and a regular on this blog) throws an annual Christmas party at his New York apartment. He knows and loves show tunes, and grew up in a highly skilled theater family surrounded by world class talent. This Christmas party has become, simultaneously, both a gift from him to his friends and also increasingly a casual gathering place for some of the most accomplished in the industry.
The guest list remains highly eclectic, very comfortable and fiercely talented. (And yes, quite a few guests also make regular appearances on this blog as well). Who is playing or singing what next is utterly unpredictable, but the intimacy to such performances is really marvelous.
|I had a marvelous time talking to Swedish Men's Clothing Blog (and one of my favorite blogs) Manligheter's Per Nilsson|
|I am so grateful to our host.|
|Organic Farmers' Kelly and her...|
|...husband were there.|
|Cabaret singer and jazz pianist Billy Stritch mesmerized the room when he so generously performed a song for us.|
Lee Roy Reams' festive pants had inspired some flourishes in my own wardrobe for years. So this year, while I was disqualified as I opted for a festive vest instead...
...Bob, Lee Roy, and Per graciously posed together.
May your holidays be as festive as these pants!
