A Sensational Send Off
As one of our main girls (okay, Danialle Karmanos) prepares to embark upon a fabulous journey with her family, a few of her besties (organized by Lexa Leatherdale and Lauren Rakolta) got together for a super-fun bon voyage party. There were about 15 of us; each brought a dish (we did a kabob with jumbo shrimp and scallops, thank you Chef Paul Hohendorf from The Roostertail). It was an amazing presentation (thank you Josh). Unfortunately, we were having so much fun; we forgot to take a photo.
There were pitchers of a wonderful champagne cocktail made with St. Germaine and strawberries; there was wine, vodka, homemade raspberry/blueberry lemonade, and table full of culinary delights. We smoked cigars by the outdoor fireplace, danced madly under the stars (Nicole Eisenberg was amazing and unstoppable), and even broke out into a high-energy Zumba session lead by the incredible Ms. Rakolta.
Most touching? Each guest asked to give Danialle travel advice, but instead talking about how much we will miss her. It is she, who is the glue in all our relationships. She brought us all together. Gets us all together. and keeps us all together. Not to worry, though. She’ll be writing a guest blog in The Social D, to keep us right with her during this remarkable adventure. Bon Voyage, my darling, Danialle.
