After a long, painful wait, it's finally happening. I have my cocktail shaker on standby, my cherry apron around my waist, and a Pandora station dedicated to the Supremes. That's right, this Saturday, just a few short days away, Mad Men will make its season 5 premiere.
My life has felt plain and decidedly less suave without Don Draper to teach me in the ways of cool. Without Betty to lead through bad example, my house-wifely duties have been falling to pieces. There was no Joan to set me straight. No Peggy to remind me that I should be happy I have a job at all.
To celebrate the return of the whole boozy crew, I'm inviting friends over, making a few throwback dishes and a ton of classic cocktails. I think Sterling would suggest you do the same.
