Party Like It’s 1929 – DSTS 2nd Anniversary

18 March 2009 – Smouldering jazz filled every corner, feathers and pearls were abound, the lights were dimmed, the stage was set. . . Glamorous ladies and gents put on the ritz for a night of show-stopping sensations celebrating Dim Sum & Then Some’s 2nd fabulous year.

Roaring Jazz
Over 400 dazzling partygoers sashayed through the doors of the intimate KEE Club in full 1920s splendour, ready to swing the night away. The venue was transformed into a sultry 20s-style jazz club, especially for Dim Sum & Then Some’s anniversary soiree. To set the scene, a baby grand piano was placed at centre stage as the apex of the evening’s entertainment. Grammy nominated Howard McCrary tickled the ivories, a double bass and drummer set the tempo, and mesmerizing vocalist, Christine Remedios, brought the house down in sets of roaring jazz and classic favourites, filling the room with heady melodic sounds.

Golden Age Glamour
Guests were transported to a glamorous bygone era by feathers, pearls and throwback touches including canapés served on shoulder strapped trays by striking “cigarette girls”. The signature cocktail for the evening, “The Charleston,” was being shaken up in abundance and fuelled the inner 1920s siren in everyone. Seductive scents cascaded throughout the venue, courtesy of Aromatherapy Associates who also sponsored a “pre-party” gift set with candles, products and fragrances to ensure several glam nights out for a lucky guest.

Timeless Luxury
The iconic Peninsula Hong Kong, which is every bit as resplendent and charmingly glorious now as when it first opened in 1928, sponsored the Grand Prize for the evening: A one-night stay in a Deluxe Suite including Traditional Peninsula Breakfast for two, “The Felix Experience” six-course tasting menu for two including five glasses of wine per person, two rounds of cocktails at Salon de Ning and two 50-minute spa treatments at The Peninsula Spa by ESPA. The lucky winner may not forget this unbelievable experience until the 2020s!

The Icing on the Cake
More decadent than any 1920s hedonist could even imagine was the spectacularly jaw-dropping birthday cake for Dim Sum & Then Some. The double chocolate truffle extravaganza with shimmering gold leaf, white pearls and chocolate flowers, was designed and created by renowned Chef Koo from VERO, the home of Hong Kong’s most-sinfully delicious chocolate and the party’s exclusive chocolate sponsor.

When we blew out the candles, you know what we wished for? Another amazing year full of fabulous fun with all of you!
