Party like it’s 1966 at our “Mad Men” retro dinner

Get your ’60s groove on! Thursday, May 24, at 6:30 p.m., our “Mad Men” Retro Dinner will feature six courses with six classic retro cocktails you might find in Don Draper’s bar recipe book. It’ll be close enough to his birthday–why not?

It’s completely optional, but you’re invited to dress up in ’60s costume: we’ll be giving away two $50 Bistro 185 gift certificates, one for Best Female Costume and one for Best Male Costume. So dig those miniskirts, go-go boots, classic ties, psychedelic dresses and what-have-you out of the closet (or Mom and Dad’s closet?) and do your best Don, Betty, Roger, Peggy, Pete, Megan, or just yourself as your 1960s best (or what it might have been if you were around then, or old enough…you get the idea). You just might win!
