6-9 p.m. Old State House Museum. $50.
Four questions: Do you or your significant other take "Garden & Gun" magazine? Do the folks at the front desk of the dry cleaners greet you by name? Are you able to swirl a tumbler-full of Pappy Van Winkle's 73-Year-Old Extra Expensive Bourbon and hold forth convincingly and at some length on its intricate subtleties — oily nutmeg and burnt coriander and wet burlap and so forth — even though we all know deep down that Four Roses is the better whiskey? Are you ever-so-slightly perturbed by this plainly silly line of questioning?
If you answered "yes" to any or all or none of those questions, then if I may be so bold, I would request that you kindly consider attending the 2nd Annual Seersucker Social, to be held this very Thursday eve on the palatial grounds of the Old Statehouse Museum.
It promises to be a fine occasion of recreation and revelry, live music and libation, festivities and merriment (it also benefits the museum). Do come decked out in your very finest vestments and finery (seersucker, naturally), as there will be awards granted for Most Dashing in the Ladies and Gentlemen categories. The winners will each receive a $50 gift card to The Container Store. There will be swing jazz music as well as delectable nourishment from Trio's. There will be lawn croquet for you competitive types. It is a 21-and-older event, and will go on rain or shine.
