Black Party Pictures have arrived.


Thursday, March 15, 2007


Ladies and Gentlemen, you are cordially invited to celebrate with us thisFriday [tomorrow yo]. We have an awful lot to celebrate: being born, quitting jobs, buying bottles, buying boats... And perhaps most importantly: looking good.

Yes, our kitchen is a photo studio. Yes, you should wear black to The Black Party. Yes, you look good now, but whoa, you look even better tomorrow.

Parking is very limited, so take a limo, or come together. As always we will have a generous selection of champagne and scotch, but you know how us Boston guys drink, so please shop accordingly.

And don't be telling everyone!
