I meant to post this yesterday but I got distracted and forgot all about it.
It’s hard to believe now but for decades the New Year’s Eve party at Cohen House was one of the highlights of campus social life. While the Cohens were alive they hosted this party and they took it very seriously indeed. In those days the parties were epic–dancing all night, games, glamour and real revelry, just like in the movies. Over the years I’ve heard some wild tales of these legendary events. I suspect that by 1976 this was waning, but that’s just a guess.
Bonus: I got distracted yesterday by our own ’70s throwback New Year’s Eve party. We made fondue!
I never heard of that New Year’s Eve Bash.
My invites must have all been lost in the mail.
