Mad About Mad Men

Don Draper’s brooding gaze and chiseled features aren’t the only appeal of AMC’s hit series Mad Men; after watching this last season, we’re hankering for the indulgent oyster-and-three-martini lunches of yore. Join us at the Beard House for a festive walk-around cocktail party featuring beverages and bites inspired by the show, crafted by historical venues from 1960s-era New York City. Vintage attire encouraged!
