PARTY IN THE A-R-K

H

ere’s something no one else is going to tell you: hosting a party doesn’t have to be a miserable experience. In fact, slogging through the uncertainty of the whos and whats and whens and wheres and tangling yourself up into a knot of anxiety about creating a flawless event undermines the whole goal: fun, togetherness, festivity. Every year there are a thousand reasons to bring your people together and celebrate. There are Fantasy Football drafts and surprises and TACOS and retirements and first birthdays and political fundraisers and (just one) Mardi Gras and high school reunions and Fridays. So many Fridays. What we’ve created here is a resource guide for every party—large or small, fancy or folksy. We hope it inspires your creativity and excitement, and helps you put your perfectionism on a shelf. Life has enough stress; offering hospitality should be a joy.

In 2014, after 90 years of being veiled in mystery and virtually unknown to the general public, the Albert Pike Masonic Center was opened up to the entire State of Arkansas to rent for weddings, fundraisers, non-profit organizations, the performing arts as well as many other usages. It has quickly become one of the most beautiful, majestic, versatile and affordable event venues in the State. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Albert Pike Masonic Center is the headquarters for the Masonic fraternity in Arkansas. Designed by architects George Mann and Eugene Stern, it was dedicated on May 12, 1924. Mann was considered the “dean of Arkansas architects” having designed several important Arkansas buildings, including the Arkansas State Capitol and the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs. The building is a monumental three-story structure in the Neo-Classical Revival style, lined on its front facade with nineteen Greek Ionic columns. With seating for 774 in the auditorium, 450 in the formal dining room, and several other unique spaces, the Center is perfect for banquets, receptions, performing arts, and many other events. The building is truly an Arkansas treasure that we wish to share with everyone.

PARTY IN THE A-R-K

Rules for Creating a Signature Cocktail for Your Event #1 CONSIDER YOUR AUDIENCE. Remember! Unless your guest list is 100% cocktail connoisseurs, a complex recipe won’t please every palette. Go with something approachable, and let the AP cocktail crew order their own.

#2 CONSIDER THE SEASON. If it’s a spring or summer event, be very careful when using an aged spirit. They can make a cocktail too heavy for the warmer months. If you definitely want to keep the aged spirit in the mix, use herbs and citrus to lighten it.

#3 FIND A STARTING POINT. Choose a spirit or a citrus you definitely want to use, and build your cocktail around it.

#4 CONSULT SOME RECIPES FOR

INSPIRATION.

See what other mixologists have used to compliment your main ingredient, and let your imagination run.

#5 LIMIT YOURSELF TO 3 TO 4

INGREDIENTS.

#6 DON’T TAKE YOURSELF TOO

CLUB 27
