Who: Theater artists, Ivey Award honorees, philanthropists, lots of a photographers, and the "in" crowd
What: A seemingly innocent reception to celebrate the successes of the 2009 Ivey Awards, held on September 21 at the State Theatre.
Where: The Eitel Apartments' top floor "Sky Lounge"
When: Tuesday, November 3, 2009
Why: To thank the folks who helped make the Iveys such a glamorous event, on track to become a Midwest version of the Tony Awards.
There's something so dignified about a reception posited to "thank" a group of well-intentioned people. But as it turned out, this reception was rocking, thanks to the smart, interesting, and conversational people it attracted. Also, thanks to the folks who got boozy, but I won't name names.
