St. Germain’s will host the 8th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island on Saturday, August 17th and Sunday, August 18th. This is the perfect location for a Jazz Age Lawn Party in NYC. As in the past years, everyone who attends dresses in Prohibition era clothes. When I originally attended I was in awe of the lovely outfits--all 1920's style--that the majority of party attendees wore. The following year, I wore suspenders, a top hat and a striped shirt to fit in with the crowd.
Add a St. Germain cocktail and you will dance the night away. I believe Governor's Island is the 'Perfect' location for an event like this. Recently, I attended the French 'Carousel' exhibition on the Island and was enthralled with the location. The 'Carousel' exhibition is still on until 29 September. I suggest that you spend some time visiting that exhibition, as well. With your attire and the turn-of-the-century Carousel, a photo op awaits you.
Remember, The Prohibition-era soirée takes place on Governor's Island only over this upcoming  weekend.
Live music, dancing, delicious food and of course, Golden Age cocktails showcasing St. Germain (recipes below)!
  ♪ ♫ I hope to see you there!
