THE SCENE: Recently, The Society Diaries’ Senior Social Editor Rob Giardinelli was the guest of honor at Jonathan Adler. His new book, Being In The Room, offers 25 simple life lessons that he’s learned during his seven years as a social chronicler for the magazine. The event brought out VIPs and Sociables eager to know more about the intrigue about what happens behind the scenes of these charity events profiled in the book.
THE VIBE: The summer chic crowd wore a mix of summer whites and bright bold colors. Cocktails, prosecco and wines flowed freely courtesy of Chloe Wines, Sway Water and Equality Vodka. While Maggie Louise Confections provided delicious, custom chocolates in imaginative shapes such as champagne corks and the state of Texas. The event included a conversation with the author and recently passed KUT media personality Stephen Rice as Giardinelli shared anecdotes and musings about his experiences in Austin, Texas and beyond.
THE CAUSE: The book signing party at Jonathan Adler was hosted by Monica Burcham, Eric Copper, Mark Erwin, Chris Lindenmayer, Lance Avery Morgan, Stephen Rice, Jesse Stowell and Luis Valadez with a portion of the proceeds from the Jonathan Adler event benefiting the Kind Clinic, an organization which provides treatment and preventive services of sexually transmitted diseases including access to the HIV prevention drugs known as PrEP and PEP.
