LCBO celebrates Classic Cocktails with Mad Men costume director Janie Bryant 

It’s not every day that Mad Men costume director Janie Bryant compliments your coat. But it’s not every day that you’re standing next to Mad Men costume director Janie Bryant in a beautiful mink-trimmed raw silk number from Magwood Vintage, sipping a Negroni at the Carlu in celebration of the LCBO’s Classic Cocktail menu. Far from an average Thursday night. Ms. Bryant cut an elegant swathe through the well-dressed crowd in a gorgeous, bright red one-shoulder gown, and entertained guests with tales of her first days working on Mad Men. She said she knew she had made it when a friend called from San Francisco on Halloween and said “I just saw a Don Draper walking down the street!” 

After she spoke, guests mingled and enjoyed 60s-era appetizers like foie gras sandwiches, and sipped to-die-for cocktails, mixed up with acrobatic flair by the bartenders. Our favourite was the Negroni, garnished with a charred orange peel. Sipping in the crowd, we spotted blogger Anita Clarke, Ainsley Kerr and Flare’s Mosha Lundstrom-Halbert (both in fur-trimmed finery) among other Toronto notables. Also rocking great sixties styles? All our fantastic She Does The City contest winners, who got to bring a classy date and celebrate all things Mad Men.
