Happy Birthday!

| November 21, 2012 | Parties

The SceneIt’s our party, and we’ll cry if we want to—just kidding, no tears here! We went all out for our eighth anniversary soirée, convincing Alberto Lombardi to open the doors early for his latest concept, Café des Artistes, a French bistro in One Arts Plaza—just for us. Guests walked up the red carpet and were greeted with the enticing scents of the spanking new everything in the resto and a fragrance lounge featuring Givenchy Dahlia Noir (for the ladies) and Acqua di Parma (for the gents). The Crowd Guests and friends such as Rachel Fresquez, Bret McKinney, Chuck Steelman, John Terlingo, Chris and Rachel Trowbridge, Amanda Ward, Ted and Eddie Wilson and many others joined us for a taste of the new menu (delicious!), wine and signature Maestro Dobel cocktails. Some of us, and we won’t name names, may have tried all three specialty drinks—the Juan’s Addiction, Twisted Tale and Great Escape—in an effort to choose a favorite. We’ll get back to you on that. The Fun As DJ Jeff Mitchell spun some tunes, the party went well into the night (and into the plaza!). Photography by Danny Campbell
