A month ago, Perry invited me to the opening of the Wyeth exhibit at the DAM. She has a higher level museum membership than I do. Only upper level members are invited to this opening which is on Friday night. Perry emailed a copy of the invitation this morning (Thursday). She neglected to tell me it’s a black tie event. I don’t know why she did not tell me this in the four conversations we’ve had about the event. I left Perry a message to call me.
I haven’t worn a tux since I left Dallas in 1989. I had an Armani tux I bought at Neiman’s to wear to the HRC dinners. I donated it to charity a number of years ago because the silhouette looked dated. Denver is not a very formal town. People wear jeans and t-shirts to the symphony and the opera. I’ve been to many social events in Denver but none have been black tie. I don’t have time to buy or rent a tux and formal shoes. What’s a guy to do?
