It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad ZaZa!

| June 25, 2012 | Parties

WARMING TRENDS We love a good polka dot pencil skirt and aviator shade any day. So, too, apparently does Hotel ZaZa Dallas. Spring came for the hip destination in a cheeky crush of perfect coifs, flounce-y frocks, shift dresses and dapper sport coats for a Mad Men-themed soirĂ©e, toasting the season and the new supper club-inspired lounge at Dragonfly restaurant. SPOTTED There were Bettys, Joans and, yes, Don Drapers at every turn, drifting around the premises and hanging poolside. Retro waitresses passed the Belvedere Vodka lemon tea cocktails, spiked with mint and barber shop-striped straws, and girls in Marilyn Monroe-esque red bathing suits tossed giant beach balls around. GOOD VIBES That ’60s thing soldiered on with more mod moods via a Mad Men picture stand, where guests waxed dramatic and took advantage of the chance for a photo opp—or 10. DJ David Austin’s modish music wafted throughout, as Champagne sparklers sizzled. And Executive Chef Dan Landsberg’s playful twists on American food classics made their own waves.
