Tuesday night, Anya Hindmarch’s Meatpacking District showroom was transformed into a English pub — albeit one that served flutes of Champagne rather than lukewarm pints.
The occasion was a Brit-style pub quiz, led by Jessica Joffe and her school chum, Hud Morgan. Guests like Gillian Hearst Shaw, Poppy de Villeneuve and Dalia Oberlander divided into teams with alliterative monikers like “Poppy’s Professors” (that would be Poppy Delevigne), ”Bonnie’s Boffins” (Bonnie Morrisson) and “Anya’s Academics.”
Over baskets of ploughman’s pickles, cheddar cheese and packets of potato chips, team members were given 90 seconds to write down answers to each of the 20 questions. Apparently Chessy Wilson’s group was the quickest on the draw — the lucky girls won gift certificates for lagers at the Tavern on Jane as well as new handbags.
