Who could imagine a better soundtrack to the holiday season than the tinkle of ice cubes against a lowball and the purr of Eartha Kitt? Throw in the hum of a sophisticated crowd, a few throaty laughs, and the crunch of a well-made appetizer, and you've got the perfect holiday ambiance. This Thursday, Chowgirls Killer Catering is throwing one such swank and intimate cocktail affair. The room will be decked out courtesy of Find Furnish's mid-century finery, and Frank, Dean, and Sammy will be in heavy rotation on the turntable. The Chowgirls will be serving some sassy '50s-style finger foods made, as all of their dishes, from the best local and organic ingredients. Old Saint Nick (or in this case, Saint Erik) will be on hand, and he and his helpers will be dolled up in fabulous retro attire. Make sure you bring cash for the bar; cocktails will be available throughout the evening for just a little scratch. Tickets are available at naughtysanta2013.eventbrite.com. 21+.
Thu., Dec. 5, 7-11 p.m., 2013
