Cocktail Party

On behalf of Jumeirah Essex House Hotel and, we are very pleased to invite all of our Photo Contest winners and judges to our celebratory cocktail party at the Jumeirah Essex Hotel on xxx-xx-xxxx.

After hundreds of photo entries and over one hundred thousand votes we are proud to honor the amazing efforts by all of our members.  The resultant winners, as chosen by our members and a panel of expert judges provided by Jumeirah Essex House, exhibit a rare creativity and photographic aesthetic in expressing unique visions of Central Park.

The party will take place from 5:30 – 7:30pm in the South Gate Gallery at Jumeirah Essex House Hotel and will feature the winning photographs for the past four season’s contests.  If you (and your guest) are able to attend please RSVP …

—–  Ah.  That’s cool.  That’s a pretty small party, though I guess the prints will stay up for a while.  That would be 12 winners and their guests = 24 people plus the judges.  I wonder if they’ll serve pigs in a blanket.  I haven’t had those for years.  And I’ll have to figure out who my guest will be.  I heard that there’s a new escort service that just started up for aging photographers.

One thought on “Cocktail Party”

  1. There is in fact such an escort service, which is coincidentally called “Pigs in a Blanket Escort Service.” It used to be called “Cocktail Frank’s Escort Service”, but was sold after its founder,the reputed NY underworld boss Frank Costello, passed away in 1982. The new owners changed the name of the company to disassociate themselves with the aura of criminality and soon became the only escort service to offer “Escorts who don’t look like escorts.” They even have wheelchair-bound escorts for their clients who want to elicit sympathy. However, there have been accusations of late that “Pigs in a Blanket” girls are “dropping their blankets” for a fee and the FBI is investigating. So, if I were you Dave, I wouldn’t chance it. You could end up in “The Big House” instead of “The Essex House.”
