Last night I went to a speakeasy. I had never really been to one before. Jenifer Ross threw a real rag-time flapper party in celebration of the first anniversary of the Watercooler. The Watercooler is a chic, hip office space for those who work independently but want an office to go to. Its been quite a success and has caused quite a stir in the river town area.
The speakeasy was terrific. Many came in costume and from the Mary Pickford punch (spiked with rum) to the piano music, the Marx Brothers movies and the poker game that went on throughout the night, it had all the feel of what I suppose a flapper era speakeasy was like during the prohibition era. There were feather boas for the ladies and fedoras for the men. No detail was overlooked and a great time was had by all. Here are a couple of pictures from the party…and many thanks to Jenifer for making it a wonderful evening…..
For those who are looking for a space to do events in the evening or who wish to rent office space, check out the Watercooler!
