MET PARTY

ONCE UPON A TIME ---WHEN THIS PARTY WAS THE FIRST MONDAY IN DECEMBER ---THE REAL FUN CAME AFTER THE DINNER WHEN FOR A NOMINAL CONTRIBUTION THERE WAS DRINING AND DANCING IN THE LOBBY OF THE MUSEUM ---IT WAS THERE THAT THE ACTION WAS ---NOT THE DINNER ---THE AFTER DINNER EVENT WAS THE PLACE TO BE IF YOU WERE YOUNG AND HIP ---IT WAS THE HEIGHT OF THE 70S AND EARLY 80'S AND WHAT FUN IT WAS ---THERE WAS NO RED CARPET --THE ONLY PRE REQUISITE FOR THE DINNER WAS A FAT WALLET ---THAT MUCH HASN'T CHANGED ---BUT THE CALIBER OF THE DINNER GUESTS WAS SO MANY RUNGS UP ON THE SOCIAL LADDER THAN TODAY
