The evening began at Wendeen”s digs with Perrier-Jouet champagne — fine bubbles — to bring in 2012.
Teaming up with Gerald — one of Cahill Gordon’s “big deal” lawyers — for the repast, Wendeen led the group to her favorite restaurant for a spectacular celebration with special friends.
Bertrand and Eugene, the best of the best in international poker tournament competition had battled to take the number one and two spots in rankings for the year. They gave us a few choice poker tips. Cathy marveled at her pre-birthday dinner. Gerald regaled the table with well-timed jokes. Wendeen assumed her usual “after 5” role as social secretary, mother hen, and head cheerleader for Messr Boulud’s chef-d’oeuvre dinner.
