A Bittersweet Cocktail Time with Sandra Lee at SoBe

I was excited to attend Sandra Lee's "Cocktail Time" party down at SoBeWFF, thinking I might be able to snag a pic with the semi-homemade goddess that we all know and love... and after she told me about the "naked silver boys in little silver shorts" who would be present....

... and present they were:





I'm not really sure what they had to do with anything, but they certainly gave new meaning to "tablescape" design. All you need is a glorious sunset, near-perfect Miami temps, and naked silver peeps to set the mood!

We enjoyed the cocktails by Jose Cuervo and some of the appetizers that were being passed (by very regular looking people and not silver models). At one point (and you'll know this if you're following me on Twitter) we realized that they were all probably Sandra Lee recipes. One tasted like Digiorno pizza with some basil cut up on it. Another was cherry tomatoes with some bleu cheese stuffed into them. Another was something called raspberry chicken on a skewer. We weren't starving (thankfully) and indulged in more drinks than food.

Surprisingly, Sandy wasn't really drinking at all! She must control herself when she's on-call.


We got there a bit after it started, so I'm not sure if Sandra made any kind of grand entrance or announcement to the crowd. She was just posing for pictures with the crowd (very graciously, I must add) and handing out a few copies of her magazine. There was no music playing and the whole thing just seemed a bit of a downer, which is so shocking for Aunt Sandy! You'd think it would be wild and crazy! I mean, there were naked silver people standing right in front of us!

Still, she couldn't have been sweeter. It was an all right start for Sandra's first party at South Beach, but she's gonna need some pointers for next year (if there is one). I'm always available, Aunt Sandy!

PS- As one of my tweets pointed out, at one point they ran out of wine glasses AND white wine, so I ended up drinking red wine out of a plastic cup at the $100/ticket Sandra Lee party. Sounds about right!

Is it just me, or does Aunt Sandy look a bit different these days? Plastic surgery, maybe? I dunno, but I definitely wouldn't recognize her on the street.

Jacob, what a great experience. I am so jealous. Drinks with Aunt Sandy would be so cool.

Wouldn't it be funny if she were really a tea-totaler?

I now need to go out and find some naked men in little shorts who I can paint up and have stand around at my party. . .

Embarrassing struggling actors and models by having them stand around parties painted in various colors is nothing new -- actually it's quite retro. They did it quite a bit in N.Y. in the '90s -- only those people were totally nude. It made for serious awkwardness. Not only because of the genitalia being displayed, but also because of how pretentious, stupid and faux-"daring" it was.

Paula Deen would have taken her clothes off and had a sex orgy right there !

Jacob,

Sorry it was so low budget for the $100 bucks you paid. No Music is not right. How many people showed up? I remember you told us there were tickets available last week- was it because they expected a small turnup???

Aunt Sandy looks weird,her face is really puffy. I wonder if that's a side effect of too much alcohol consumption.....haha

It was well-attended with a line at the bars pretty much the whole night. Still, it didn't really seem like much of a rocking affair. Wish there had been more Sandy influence and less random silver people, actually.

I'm just wondering if having totally nude people at a party is "faux" daring, what would "actual" daring be?!?
*smiles*

It's FAUX-daring, sweetheart, because making people walk around naked is easy. Anyone could do that. It takes creativity and originality to shock people. Guess you're not aware of that. *smiles*

And apparently young men in tight shorts is too much for Photobucket -- they removed your pic.

Ugh! I'll have it back up later.

I think Aunt Sandy looks really nice, very au' natuale. Her long neck is sexy. And although it was $100 a pop, ain't nothing wrong with drinking from a plastic cup. I've gotten wasted many a day/night from drinking out of red and blue plastic cups :) Ummmmm the silver surfers are not hot at all.
