What a swell couple of guys — Mike Raymond and Steve Long. Just ask fans of their club, Reserve 101, who enjoyed Manhattans on the house — all night long as the biz partners celebrated five big years in their cozy digs on Caroline.
The free Manhattans, made with Angel's Envy bourbon, were offered from the time the doors opened at 7 until lights out. Sustenance for the potent imbibing was provided by Golden Grill food truck with its yummy custom grilled cheese sandwiches. Justin Nava of thelastplaceyoulook provided the sexy tunes with cool acoustic stylings in the lounge area of the bar.
Giving philanthropic meaning to the night, Raymond and Long invited guests to make donations to Lucky Dog Rescue.
Lifting their glasses in a toast to Reserve 101 were Chip Hight, Jodie Eisenhardt (representing the charity), James Glassman, Tricia Harrison, Zoe Belden, Crystin Pactor, Simon Seaton, Yvonne Mills, Melissa Loveless, Mark Nichols and a crowd that totaled 270 strong.
