All That Jazz


Yesterday, Jonah and I and our good-looking friends Bethany and Jerod took the ferry over to Governors Island for the Jazz Age Lawn Party. It was fantastic, a sea of pearls and fringe and hats straight out of The Great Gatsby. We all got dressed up and spent the day on a picnic blanket, eating, drinking St. Germain cocktails, and the best part, people watching. We spotted Bill Cunningham taking photos, listened to live music from Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, the Charleston was attempted by some, while strawberry ice cream was eaten by others (this girl), and we got old-timey photos taken to commemorate the day. Bonus points, we were boarding the ferry to leave just as the rain began to fall. A perfect day, I tell you.

  4. You guys look fabulous! I went on Saturday and it was sooooo hot. We really wanted to get down on the dance floor, but walking just two steps broke a sweat. Glad you got out of there in time...yesterday's downpours were ridiculous.
