Jazz Age Lawn Party

On Sunday, we joined our New York friends for something I had been looking forward to since last August when I first found out about this event, the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island.  It was all I had hoped it would be and more.  The 1920's are my all-time favorite era and probably the main reason I decided to be a history major and want to be a history teacher.  This was my scene, I was able to dress like a flapper while sipping on champagne cocktails in a park and not be judged, but rather embraced.  We had such a great time listening to fun music, people watching, having drinks and relaxing.  Bill Cunningham even sneakily snapped some photos of my friend and I so perhaps we shall make The NY Times??? A girl could hope, right.  Next time (yes, there will be a next time) I want to go a little early to make it for the dance lessons!

Father's Day insured a lot of Dapper Dans and
their children.
