The gala was great! Sat next to Senator Tydings to my left (at the next table) and the Political Secretary from the Austrian Embassy to my right who was originally from Frankfurt … we had some nice chats about German cinema. Black tie event; filet mignon for dinner. The elegance, the notables, the French Renaissance decor, and the sounds of Hungary gave it a European feel all its own. Speeches by the Senator and Ambassador Andras Simonyi from the Embassy of Hungary.
Many congratulations to Bryan Dawson and all at the American Hungarian Federation for their many, many months of tireless work making tonight a reality! The evening was really spectacular … and the Cosmos Club is REALLY classy!
