Want to party Mad Men style? Then you should come to DOCOMOMO US MN’s Mod Mixer this Thursday, June 21st from 6-8pm at the new furniture showroom, Forage Modern Workshop. The event is free of charge to the public. I am proud to be involved with Minnesota chapter of DOCOMOMO, which strives to document and preserve local architecture of the modern movement. This is the non-profit’s 4th annual Mod Mixer and this year there will be a live jazz band, wine and beer, a photo booth and a raffle with some great prizes! It is encouraged, but not required to wear your best vintage outfit. I know I will be channeling my inner Megan Draper! Let’s party like they did at Sterling Cooper, just make sure to leave all lawnmowers at home! Swing by and say hi!
