Pics from the AOA holiday cocktail party at New World Catering

The AOA holiday cocktail party in the kitchen at New World Catering in Albany was Thursday night, and we had a lot of fun! It was very informal -- a throw-your-coat-over-here-and-grab-a-cocktail kind of affair. And, of course, there was food: pan-blackened stringbeans, deviled eggs, ropa vieja sliders, an enormous pan of paella, and more.

Thank you to chef Ric Orlando and the New World Catering crew for hosting us. And thanks to everyone who came to hang out with us!

Here are a few pics...

This space in the back is usually prep space for the catering operation. New World set up it up so we could hang out there.

That mixer is great. Ric Orlando was telling us it's from the 1960s, and it's built like a tank.

We had lot at fun Thursday night. And we've been thinking about other small events we might be able to put together next year...

New World Catering advertises on AOA, which, you know, is how we were able to set up this event.
