We are getting our cocktail shakers ready for Sunday night's season premier of
Mad Men. I even made an avatar of me (courtesy of AMC) so that I
can be with the guys of Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce.
Love that show. Although I am a professional interior designer, I have also
worked at a couple of advertising agencies in both New York and Houston.
Let me tell you, it's a wild and crazy business. One guy wanted a job
at an ad agency in Houston. He wrapped his resume around a rock and
threw it through the agency's window. He got the job because of his
ingenuity, but the cost of the window came out of his paycheck.
As fun and creative as the ad world is, you better be able to soar like an
eagle to keep up. Sixteen hour days are not uncommon. No wonder the guys
at Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce need a cocktail.
So we will be glued to the television on Sunday night. I will be watching to
see what everyone is wearing. I love the fashion on that show!
Oh ~ and the music too. In case you have not noticed (perhaps you always
have the sound turned down on your computer) I am a huge music lover.
All kinds ~ jazz, pop, classical, even some country. Just can't live without it.
This was my mother-in-law's favorite cocktail recipe book. It came from the
Mad Men era. Oh and these cute little cocktail napkins too.
I did some research about popular appetizers from the 1960's. Oysters Rockefeller,
Chex Mix and of course, deviled eggs.
So before the season premier begins, let's go visit ~
