On Saturday night, we attended the most faboo party! It was Chris Nichols' annual b-day bash. Chris works at L.A. Magazine, is active with the Modern Committee of the L.A. Conservancy and is an author and man about town. We've known each other for-evah!!!! I met Chris probably 20 years ago when he was a mere student and working part-time for Amy at Future Studio. He's come quite a long way since then.
The party was in a private pullman car at Union Station. Chris and Charlene thought of everything! There were vintage autos near the train; a trumpet player between the tracks; dipped beef sandwiches and salads catered by Philippe's Restaurant; full bar; working barber in the train's barbershop; air-conditioning inside and most guests were dressed per the 1949 invitation.
We received this somewhat cryptic invitation a few weeks ago. Mike at Franklin Avenue describes it quite well here. Pat at Eating LA was also there and wrote a fine review of the event. Who knows what other bloggers I missed among the crowds?!?
It truly was a wonderful event and highly bloggable. Thanks to Chris and Charlene for including us. Happy Birthday, Chris!
