Things I Love Today: Jazz-Age Lawn Party

If you read the Sartorialist, you were probably wondering this week: “What is a Jazz-Age Lawn Party and how can I get one?” I was intrigued.

Every June, the Dreamland Orchestra holds an outdoor concert and event that includes dancing contests, croquet and a pie baking challenge. It looks like a free event aside from the ferry you to take to Governors Island. Love it in concept and in execution. I found more photos of the event on Flickr and a video clip of people dancing.

There’s a similar event in England in August at a beautiful estate that includes a proper English tea on the lawn.

If I had any sort of lawn to my name, I would host my own Jazz-Age Lawn Party in a second. I don’t know anything about dancing the Charleston, but I have the beanpole figure and taste for champagne punch!

    Oohhhhh, this is the type of thing that the ear doctor and I LOVE doing, especially since we swing dance.

    A few years ago we went to the USO new years dance on one of the battleships anchored in San Fran. It was AWESOME!
