GRAB YOUR CANDY CIGS >>>
Season five of Mad Men hits the boob tube tonight. For Tacoma fans addicted to the show like it's characters crave nicotine, this is a welcome relief.
Tonight from 5 to 8 p.m., the Tempest Lounge is hosting a Mad Men mixer, and those who arrive clad in early '60s finery will have a chance to win a prize.
In addition, the bash will feature Mad Men-themed drinks, meaning brown liquor or clear, in a highball glass, from opening to close. Just, as Roger Sterling says, "don't be a sissy Mary" about it: "You don't know how to drink. Your whole generation, you drink for the wrong reasons. My generation, we drink because it's good, because it feels better than unbuttoning your collar, because we deserve it. We drink because it's what men do."
Yeah ... and women.
And women better dig out that Jackie Kennedy finery quick.
In terms of food, organizers Denise Tempest (Tempest Lounge owner) and Kris Blondin (co-owner of Stink Cheese & Meat) will fill your TV tray with deviled eggs, onion dip, pigs-in-a-blanket and other staples of the '60s.
The party is meant to be a pre-function. It ends at 8 p.m. giving partiers plenty of time to safely get home for the 9 p.m. start of the show.
[Tempest Lounge, Sunday, March 25, 5-8 p.m., 21+, $5 cover, 913 MLK Way, Tacoma, 253.272.4904]
