Rachael Ray Anniversary Party Details

I promised yesterday that I would be on the lookout for details about the Anniversary party for Every Day With Rachael Ray. As promised, I found some tidbits, including the invitation, pictured at left. The Freeloader, a journalist who anonymously attends parties and reports back, went to the party and wrote this article.

The Freeloader was interested in what people were wearing and the decorations, but who cares? How was the food? If you read Every Day with Rachael Ray (and you should), you won't be surprised that the food was served from "No Recipe Zones," which is a feature in the magazine. Offerings included mini-chicken tacos, lavash with tapenade, spinach-and-mushroom pizzettes, mini-sausage and cabbage dogs and pork-fried rice. They must have been good because they went quick - the Freeloader said the food areas were usually empty.

Here's a quick summary of the event from the article:

The Event: Every Day With Rachael Ray first anniversary celebration
The Date: Nov. 7, 2006
The Venue: The Altman Building
The Bar: Heavy on the Absolut sponsorship, but light on pouring and sadly understaffed
The Food: Let's call it Rachael Ray Delish
The Swag: The December issue, recipe cards, ads for Folonari wines and GMC's Acadia, a deck of Absolut recipe/playing cards, all inside an Ann Taylor Loft weekend bag
The Crowd: NYC magazine peeps revealing their fly-over state roots and one dietetically challenged Freeloader
