Who: Basilica supporters, Gear Daddies fans, and good Catholic kids
What: Basilica’s M Party
When: Saturday, May 16
Where: The Depot
Why: Because Gear Daddies + Good Cause = Good Time
Overhead in the Crowd: “I heard the Gear Daddies were coming and I was like—Sold!”
I’m not one to gush, but this Catholic girl really enjoyed the M party. Actually I really love this new trend of established institutions adding late-night cocktail parties to the tail end of their annual galas. Just because the under 35 crowd doesn’t have $250 to drop on a benefit dinner every other Saturday doesn’t mean they don’t want to give—or at least down a few cocktails and rock out in the name of charity for that matter. So the Basilica roped in the Gear Daddies, decked out the Depot, and mixed some seriously delicious vodka/champagne M Martinis for a crowd of sharply dressed, super attractive, well behaved, spunky young patrons who should make the Basilica proud.
