Friday Night – Gala
I couldn’t fit a camera in my teeny vintage purse. The following 3 photos are courtesy of belathee.com.

This shot-sized drink was made with gin, chamomile tea, and raspberries, and was garnished with a rose petal.
Adam Seger, looking fab as usual.
Saturday: MCC Seminars
For me, the big highlight of the day was my “Whiskey Is The New Black” seminar. I was pretty much consumed with making sure all went well behind the scenes, so I didn’t take many photos. (I’ll save my tales about panic over the whiskey that almost didn’t show, transporting 15 pounds of cheese for whiskey/cheese pairings, and the supreme awesomeness of my panelists – Michter’s distiller Willie Pratt and mixologist Jason Asher – for another day). The couple of snaps I managed were taken “backstage” in the kitchen area, and were taken hastily with my cellphone. I’m a little embarrassed to have them on the same page as professional-quality photos, but they do more or less reflect the hurried quality of my day.
