From Judy Dworin Performance Project’s whimsical dancers hanging off the stemware to Mark Twain House & Museum’s bedazzled glass inscribed “When I Drink You Look Fabulous,” it was a creative collision of art and libation that had the crowd smiling at the Greater Hartford Arts council annual “ARTini” party Thursday at Hartford’s Union Station.
“I just love it,” said Jen Landini, as she perused the Wadsworth Atheneum’s fan and tulle creation while sipping a peach and pomegranate “Seasonal Segue” martini created by Cuvee, one of several restaurants serving up cocktails . “It is so frivolous and girly, it’s just fun,” said the Southington resident who works in Hartford. “I mean the glass,” she grinned referring to the “fun” part. “Although the drinks are pretty fun too.”
“I think I’d put a cucumber martini in it,” he said assessing the environmentally friendly themed glass and what bartending concoction would best suit it. “It ties in with the plant theme and all the green.”
