As much as I love Mad Men, I have to admit that this season felt a bit, I don’t know, blah. Storylines seemed to either go nowhere or felt rushed and unexpected. I mean, the whole Ginsberg thing? Come on. But last Sunday’s episode, specifically this scene between Don and Peggy, reminded me why I love Mad Men so much. Of course, it came only one episode away from the season finale, which makes me as weepy as I was when Peggy asked Don, “What did I do wrong?” and he handed her his handkerchief and said, “You’re doing great.”
Liberty Hall Museum, in Union, will try to cheer Mad Men fans up with a 1960s-themed Mad Men Party on Saturday, May 31.
“The entire staff of Liberty Hall Museum is so excited to have guests step back in time to the 1960s and feel as though they are a part of an episode of the hit show Mad Men,” said Lacey Bongard, Coordinator of Museum Programs. “Everything about the show is great, and we can’t wait to see if people come dressed as Don Draper or Peggy Olsen, and drink and dance the night away to classic ‘60s songs.”
Admission is $75 per person, and includes delectable handcrafted hors d’oeuvres, all-you-can-drink 1960s-era cocktails, vintage card games, board games, party games, period dancing and live music by Sentimental Reasons, Jersey City’s favorite doo-wop and oldies band. Guests must be at least 21 years of age to attend, and are encouraged – though not required – to don their best vintage or reproduction period attire, as a prize will be awarded for “Best Dressed.” Space is limited, so guests are encouraged to reserve as soon as possible to ensure availability.
