“All I have to do now is find a mask…” emailed my friend Stephanie, sending me into a slight panic state. I hadn’t paid too much attention to the invite that my friend Peter had sent me for his 40th birthday party. Peter is notorious for throwing thematic parties, and for his milestone 40th, he had sent an invite for a party inspired by Truman Capote’s Party of the Century. A black and white gala, I hadn’t realized that the Party of the Century was actually a masquerade ball as well (damn you Truman Capote! I shake my fist at you!) This meant Peter’s party would also be full of masked attendees. Of course, with Peter and his friends involved, that would also mean lot of a fabulous food, fabulous drinks and fabulous drag outfits. AJ and I opted out of doing drag, but thankfully we both had tuxedos (that we customized) to wear to the party. And, as a last minute addition, I found a mask at the local costume shop, imported from Italy. Happy birthday Peter!
