"Disney gone wrong" is how my friend Kelly aptly described Saturday night's well-attended and lavishly turned out Hellywood party
thrown by Tim Gill and Adam Williams. The party's "Once Upon a Time" fairy-tale theme led to a sea of drinking and gyrating variations of characters like Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, and the Three Little Pigs.
In attendance: Rocky Mountain News
gal-about-town Penny Parker
dressed as Dorothy, Mezcal
and La Rumba
owner Jesse Morreale as a T-Rex construction worker, Out Front Colorado
editor Greg Montoya as one of the three little pigs, JR's
owner Larry McDonald as a musketeer. Bouquets
owners BJ Dyer and Guenther Vogt came as Cinderella's ugly stepsisters. Not a pretty sight.
I was forced to make myself comfortable at a table by the bar amongst the whimsical woodland decor, after I took a tumble earlier in the evening at the Denver Monster Bash at the Andenken gallery.
Now I can relate to what people go through when you "throw your back out." There's a first time for everything, of course, but I'm hoping that this will be the last.
And though I spent most of my time at the party self-medicating with red wine and kamikaze shots (yes, a bad mix, but I was in a bad way), the people-watching alone made it worth sticking it out for the rest of the night. Check out the pics from 2002 and 2003;
this year's photos should be posted soon as well.
