To Do: Party like an Embassador

I went to a fancy reception at the British Consul General's residence last night (yet another packed week).

He had a lovely party full of business types from the medical sector in pinstripe suits, whiskey tasting hosted by a man in a kilt and some delicious appetizers: half red potatoes topped with bacon and blue cheese, smoked salmon with arugula in little wraps, goat cheese won tons with plum sauce, tomato soup with basil oil, grilled tomato and cheese sandwiches, pulled pork on buns the size of silver dollar and crab salad in cucumber cups.

Yum! I'm not sure how I managed to eat all that and still network until nearly losing my voice. I even spotted the Consul's family cat dashing through the party. It was the perfect spot to start obsessing about next year's royal wedding!

I saw you at the party Tuesday night, I was the gal in the LBD running the scotch tasting. I wanted to tell you I love the blog, but you didn't make it over to my table! I'll remedy that by saying it now- great blog, and your dress at Julian's fete was just fab. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did- Julian always throws a great party.

In fact, just realized that's me (or, my back, anyway) in your photo. Too funny!

Oh! I wish I had met you at the party, Emily! You looked super cute in the dress. Do you work with the embassy or with the whiskey group?

I work for the company that owns the whisky distilleries (and quite a few others), but both the British and the Irish consuls are frequent clients. Very interesting group of people that night- I overheard some facinating conversations about pending medical research projects!

That sounds like a really fun career! Are you interested in joining the SF LAC? We're always looking for new members :)
