After seven smoke-/alcohol-/drama-filled seasons of AMC’s “Mad Men,” the series that saluted the best and worst of the 1960s cut-throat business world is finally coming to an end. On Sunday, May 17, the final episode will air, but The Oakroom wants to bring fans together the night before for one big blowout party — complete with period costumes, drinks, dinner and dancing.
Hosted by Oakroom Chef Patrick Roney — who says he’ll be sporting his swankiest Don Draper attire — the party includes classic cocktails by mixologist Jeremy Johnson of Meta, who will reimagine the drinks the characters guzzled on the show. A butler will serve hors d’oeuvres created by Chef Roney, and Carly Johnson’s Jazz Duo will perform vintage jazz classics. (Carly will be dressed as the polished Joan Holloway.)
Mingling and drinks begin at 6 p.m., and dinner follows at 7. The menu includes some of Draper’s favorites, like Crab Louie, Fondue and Beef Wellington. The evening will end with more music and dancing — and, of course, desserts.
“Au Revoir to ‘Mad Men'” takes place on Saturday, May 16, at the Seelbach’s Oakroom. Tickets are $85 per person and include everything mentioned above. Reservations are mandatory — call 807-DINE or click here.
