Jax Cafe' in NE Minneapolis hosted a Mad Men premiere party last night - I think this was their 3rd year hosting? Jake Rudh, a local DJ who looks the Mad Men part, hosted the event. There were so many amazing outfits! OMG it was total eye candy. Minneapolis knows how to wear vintage! There were even a few classic cars parked out front. Jax set up some vintage "sets" for photo ops (those pics will probably be up on the internet at some point - I'll post the link when they are). We were served vintage drinks and a 60's style dinner (caesar salad, a choice of chicken kiev and rice pilaf, steak and baked potato, salmon with creamed spinach, or pasta and of course pineapple upside down cake for dessert). There were playboy bunnies serving drinks and a big band playing oldies.
Cannot wait til next year! Let's hope it doesn't take 18 months. Here are some pics from the night:
It was hard picking a dress....
Went for the red flowers!
Thank you Brittany for Betty Draper-ing my hair!
Jake Rudh - we had good seats - we watched Mad Men on that giant screen behind him.
Thank you Julie Abnet for getting us hooked on Mad Men.

I loved their dresses. Ok I loved everyone's dresses....
Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce!
Yep, it could have been 1965.
