Last weekend Governor’s Island transformed into a 1920’s oasis. Featuring vintage shops and clothing vendors, a motorcar exhibition, live music and dance performances and vintage inspired cocktails (most notably the St.Germain, made with St-Germain liquer, MARTINI & ROSSI sparkling wine, sparkling water and a lemon twist).
One of the more notable aspects of the Jazz Age Lawn Party was its food. Vendors included, Coco & Co., Empanada Lady, Empire Biscuits, Fire Belly Korean BBQ, Lobster Joint (truly amazing), Local 215, Perfect Picnic, Butterstein’s Popcorn and Vintage Ice Cream Guys. Over 4,000 guests flocked dressed to the nines to learn to Charleston, picnic in the sun and relive the beauty of a bygone era. The performances were amazing! It showcased some serious talent that perfectly did good justice to the throwback theme, including Michael Aranella and his Dreamland Orchestra! Check out our photos from the event!
