The 2008 B&B Reunion

Searing heat, imminent storms, flying cranes, posh Paris nuptials,
fail to distract 100 B&Bers at coolest alumni party ever.

On a smoldering June 9th evening, in the midst of an accident-prone Manhattan, The Public House on 41st Street and Lex lavished some uncharacteristically good pub food like tapenades, wraps and chicken tenders and some characteristically good drinks on the parched attendees at the 2008 reunion. The Public House was suggested by Bill Sandberg, who fled to sea before the event. According to reliable sources (Sandberg) he had to attend a sailing awards dinner.

Jack, of course, was there…tieless! Al was there… even more tieless! (Jack was the one with the wavy hair.)

They came from all over the continent (not the globe, because a few expatriates attended the Lorraine Miller wedding in Paris which was, inconveniently, scheduled for the same day). But Diane Murray winged it from LA and Netta Linder and Irv Osowsky from Florida, Jay Fraser from San Antonio, Diane Worthington from Maine, Gail Zeltman from Cape Cod, Steve Davis and his lovely new wife from Santa Fe, Katie Williams from Atlanta; plus Jonathon Shipman and Jeri Slater by elevator from the 21st floor and Roy Eaton by tram over the entire width of the mighty East River.

 

A TERRIFIC TRIO – Three exes are playing nicely together at Masterson/SWOT Team: Peggy Masterson, Alan Goltz and Bill Perkins.

A DYNAMIC DUO – Don Blauweiss and Diane Dudzinski are not only playing house together, but they’re winning awards for advertising in Westchester.

MANY GOING SOLO – On the list of attendees there are a scattering of retired-for-lifers and a larger number of computer-for-hire free-lancers. Look ‘em up if you need congenial and professional help.

PUT BACK THAT $1000 CHECK YOU WERE ABOUT TO SEND US! INSTEAD, go have an early bird special at some hip restaurant in Manhattan. (If you don’t tip or drink you should be able to cover it. We did so well that all expenses were paid, including we believe, expenses until the next reunion!

CAN YOU HOLD OUT FOR TWO YEARS? – It was agreed that we’ll be having these get-togethers every two years. We’ll give you plenty of notice. (If you’re planning a wedding outside the States, please let Vicky know in advance.)

WRITE THE WRITERS – Please write Gail Zeltman, Vicky Amon or Diane Dudzinski to let us know of any B&Bers you’ve run into who aren’t aware of our reunions or our website. And generally let us know what’s happening to you … and to people you worked with.
