"It's a drawing party" I T9-ed in a text to my friend, Trisha. Then erased it, picking up the phone and leaving a voice message about the drawing party, happening at the Art Works Studio every Wednesday in Larchmont Village.
Champagne, Larchmont Larder dinner and a (live) male nude model were too much to explain in text form.
It was also too much to explain to my boyfriend, telling him I had a girl party, i.e. no boys allowed to go to Wednesday night.
