Citymeals-on-Wheels Benefit at Bar Pleiades
Of course, it wouldn't be a cocktail party without cocktails. The cocktails were ably handled by Bar Pleiades mixologist Cameron Bogue. I never had a cocktail with butternut squash puree in it before, nor would I thought that such a concoction would be palatable in the least. His elixir proved me completely wrong.
Yes, the evening was a complete blast. Yes, it was fun seeing Gael Greene and Barbara Fairchild. And yes, it did put a spotlight on the needs that exist in our own communities. So, when you open you wallet to help out Haiti, which we all should do. Keep it open a minute more to help out your less fortunate neighbors. Your next meal will taste that much better for it.
