The holiday season is definitely a great time for getting dressed up, sparkly things, going out, and enjoying lots of social functions. Friday night I attended a Holiday Chic night out at Del Frisco’s Boston location. Sponsored by Dirty Water Media, the event featured Chambord cocktails, bites of Del Frisco’s best, like crab cakes, and tuna tartare, makeup from Elizabeth Grady, and a bunch of other fun, girly things.
I was actually expecting the event to be a ladies’ night, so I was surprised at the very large number of men there! I arrived solo and enjoyed a sample of a Chambord martini while waiting for my friend to arrive.
I sampled some Solixir, a really delicious line of refreshing drinks infused with healthy botanical extracts.
And checked out some glittery hair pieces and hats that were for sale.
When my friend arrived, we decided to head out to the Del Frsico’s bar area to get a little bit of air. While everything at the event was delicious, it was very well attended, and the crowd was not the most mannerly group I have ever met. People cut in line for drinks, pushed, shoved, walked in front of things while I was taking pictures. Liberty Wharf, as much as I love it, unfortunately tends to attract the self-important type. As the great Countess Luann put so well, Money can’t buy you class.
Before we headed out we grabbed the fabulous gift boxes which contained a can of Solixir and an Elizabeth Grady mud mask which I was very excited about. It also contained a gift card for lunch at Del Frisco’s. I am definitely going to make a point of a fancy business lunch sometime soon! Del Frisco’s also has a fun Sunday deal; I can imagine Sunday would be a little less crowded, thus making for a great date night.
Our experience at the Del Frisco’s bar was much better. We promptly got seats thanks to some nice gentlemen, and we each had a VIP martini and a lemon drop martini. Del Frisco’s has a fun bar scene that makes for good people-watching. Their cocktails are truly first rate (and strong!), and the whole vibe is kind of swanky. It’s a great place to grab some bar bites and cocktails or even an after dinner drink. We ended up having a fabulous evening on the water. But we both agreed that our preferred way to visit Liberty Wharf is by boat. Only six months to go. . .
