mad-men-partyCan I dress the part?

YES absolutely!  In fact, the network has a “Mad Men Party Guide” that gives tips on what to wear!  You’ll notice many of our drink specials are on the Party Guide’s cocktail list too.

Dean Opsal will be sporting a nice suit and a skinny tie, and our bar tending staff will be dressed the part.  We’d love it if you come dressed up, but please come either way.  Here are some quick and easy ideas to add some Mad Men style from the Party Guide.

There are even character masks.  You can download this PDF to print a mask of your favorite character.

It’s easy to work in a detail or two reminiscent of the period:

  • Get yourself a “hostess apron” to set that “happy homemaker” tone
  • Hats, hats, hats — whether it’s a fedora or a fascinator, you can’t go wrong
  • Eyewear — from sporty Wayfarers to classic browline frames, slip on a snazzy pair of specs
  • Go casual in clamdiggers and ballet flats or some country club-approved golf pants
  • How about a pencil skirt & matching twin-set or a white dinner jacket and bowtie?

How did Canadian Club become big news?

Don Draper has single handedly revived the Canadian Club brand.  His 1960’s era affinity draws on the popularity of the drink during that time, which has its roots in the Prohibition era.

During prohibition, with the manufacture and sale of alcohol still perfectly legal in Canada, American gangsters soon turned their eyes northward for product.

The Canadian Club distillery, located just over the border from Detroit soon became a favorite supplier for notorious Chicago gangster Al Capone.

It’s reported that 20,000 cases of Canadian Club Whisky were smuggled across the border every month during Prohibition.

Canadian Club sold the whisky for $7 per case to their customers, who in turn were reselling the illicit liquor in the U.S. for more than 10 times the price.
