The Party of the Year: Beaujolais Goes Boo!


New Time, New Place, Same Fabulousness.

The spooky season just got a lot more stylish, as the Beaujolais Wine Celebration becomes the Boo-jolais Wine Celebration, moving up a few weeks from its usual pre-holiday season time slot. The Alliance for Positive Health is shaking things up for this year’s benefit, starting with a new theme, a new date, and a new venue.

This year the celebration takes place on Friday, October 28 at the Washington Avenue Armory in Albany, NY – a grand atmosphere for the battalion of glamorous costume-clad attendees set to storm the start of Halloween weekend.

As always, this event features lots of fine wine and delicious food, supplied by a stellar assembly of Albany eateries. Perhaps most exciting this time around is the entertainment that will be on gloved hand in the form of several drag performances by two of my favorite local luminaries: Countess Sondra Rox and Grande Duchess Ivanna.

The Beaujolais Celebration is one of the highlights of my party-going year, and though they always do an impeccable job of crafting unforgettable evenings, this one looks to be reinvigorated and rejuvenated by all of the energizing changes. That includes the encouraged dress code: as this falls on the weekend before Halloween, this is a costume party. While they are not required, costumes are definitely appreciated, but if a suit and tie is your comfort zone, feel free to stay true to yourself. This is one of the most accepting and fun parties we attend, no matter what you wear, and it’s going to be extra-special this year.

Get Ready to go Boo!
