“Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”
The last time I was in New York, I walked by the Tiffany’s storefront, where Audrey Hepburn daintily ate her make-do breakfast, longingly gazing into the windows. It’s a poignant starting point for tomorrow’s ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s Formal Affaire,’ a formal party put on by GLSEN the night before Albany’s Gay Pride Parade and Festival. Tickets can be purchased here, and I’d recommend getting yours sooner rather than later.
As this is Albany, the formality of the event is largely loose – and since it’s part of the all-inclusive celebration of Pride, pretty much anything goes, so if you’re worried about not having a tuxedo or ball gown, don’t be. (For the record, I will NOT be in a tuxedo – I have something see in mind…)
On the other hand, there is no limit to how formal you can get if you are so fancily inclined, and it’s always nice to see how much Albany can get dolled up. There are more than a few folks who continually manage to be impressive and surprising in this city – and seeing everyone in their finest is going to be one of the best parts of this party.
The Washington Park Lake House will be the setting for this evening of enchantment, providing a bit of rustic elegance somewhere between the cramped confines of Holly Golightly’s depressingly-small apartment and the expansive cement-surrounded monolith of Tiffany’s itself. This looks to be the social event of the season, and coming on the eve of Albany Pride it seems that the stars have aligned for a night to remember.Back to Blog
