February’s Mad Men and Martinis kicked off with a Mahi Thai and an order of Oyster Rockfeller. Guests we once again encouraged to dress up and participate in the Mad Men costume contest, photographed by Rachel Reichert and Seth Ogilvie. This month participants were photographed in the Modern Hotel’s lobby. Contestants were encouraged to interact with the varying tabletop accessories (i.e. booze, Lucky Strikes and mid century fare), emphasizing the recurring indulgence of such substances throughout the series.
