On the last weekend of September, Saratoga Living teamed up with the Saratoga Automobile Museum to host an exclusive VIP Lounge at the museum’s annual two-day Saratoga Motorcar Auction. The lounge was a place where bidders, consignors, the museum’s Silver Arrow members and other car enthusiasts could gather for a drink and bite to eat in clear view of all the fast-paced auction action.
Both Saturday and Sunday mornings began with light snacks, Stewart’s Shops coffee, hot and iced tea from Saratoga Tea & Honey, Champagne and mimosas by Mionetto. Complexions Spa for Beauty & Wellness set up shop in a corner of the lounge, and offered free hair and makeup touch-ups all day. Around 11:30am, Bocage Champagne Bar rolled out tea sandwiches, dainty sweets, Graham Beck Rosé and Old Fashioneds made with Misunderstood Whiskey, while a bucket of ice-cold beer from DeCrescente Distributing needed to be replenished regularly. Next came still wines from Freixenet and a mid-afternoon charcuterie spread by The Charcutebrie. And fall-themed floral arrangements by Samantha Nass brought it all together.
