From here to eternity

Through the Keyhole Burlesque - LUPEC Boston USO Show

Hanky Panky & Barbara West - LUPEC Boston USO ShowAh, yes, the famous World War II novel and movie, evoked in my mind by the estimated 200 people who showed up at the LUPEC Boston USO Show Friday night dressed in 1940s costume. It’s also an apt description of the line at the bar that night!

I and the rest of the Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails are exceedingly grateful to all the generous, fun-lovin’ folk who came to the party with bells (and sailor hats and swingy skirts and two-tone pumps) on, and who were patient beyond the call of duty while waiting to order cocktails. We thank you, and so do the women at the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans, the recipients of the evening’s ample proceeds (still being reckoned).

These pics are just a few of the many taken that evening. See C. Fernsebner’s post on the Bostonist for additional photos, and check in with the LUPEC Boston blog this week for more possible links to photos.

    Lauren (and laides)! we all had such an incredible time…it was a smashing success. As for the lines? They flew by, and it was a great place to people watch and meet new friends. You all did a fantastic job

    Congratulations to you and the other ladies of LUPEC Boston on a hugely successful event! The drinks were tasty and strong, the lineup was tasty and, err, I mean, nice, and the venue was beautiful. I was very impressed with how sharp all the gents looked (yours included).

    I have to agree with Andrea – so many sharp-dressed fellas in one room… and decidedly cute sailors… You all must come to our events more often.

    I echo Barbara West’s sentiments! Thanks to all of you patient people, and SO glad you had a blast.

    it’s very reassuring to know that so many young men own hats and bow ties.
