Surreal Soiree

| December 17, 2014 | Parties National

The Party
The District’s young and fabulous donned their coolest costumes and gathered at the Halcyon House in Georgetown to support the S&R Foundation—a local organization dedicated to advancing the arts and sciences—with a sophisticated theme party. Dubbed Night Nouveau, this year’s surreal affair included a DalĂ­-esque entryway, a maze populated with mimes and stilt walkers draped in ivy.

The People
Notables included White House staffer Fran Holuba and the U.N. Foundation’s Anastasia Dellaccio. Guests dined on a delicious buffet from local eateries like Daikaya and Peruvian Brothers, and sipped Tito’s vodka Moscow mules.

Best In Show
The night definitely had a wild dress code! People-watching was popular as partygoers compared costumes. (We saw everything from fallen angels to surrealist paintings come to life to Mexican wrestling masks). The evening ended with what was no doubt a double take-inducing afterparty at Malmaison. –Photos courtesy of S&R Foundation
