The second night of Portland Cocktail Week was celebrated with a DonQ Rum party at Lola’s Room which is part of the Crystal Ballroom. The 80s Yacht Rock theme was helped along with a number of sailor hats and fairly soon nearly everyone had a white cap on their head.
I loved the fun theme and the mascots of the party, a shark and crab. There was a make-shift photobooth and the music was provided by the party-goers as they sang karaoke with a live band.
Libations came in the form of Dark & Stormys, rum punch, daiquiris and my fave- DonQ Anejo neat.
Ah, she’s a champagne bottle that popped its cork!
Of course one of my favorite things is burlesque. I happen to love all things that involve music and dancing. Denver bartender and LUPEC member Vivienne VaVoom entertained us with another great burlesque number. Loved those giant feathery fans.
