We've always enjoyed entertaining around our favorite movies and television series. Ever since our Sunday night Soprano dinners in Atlanta where we'd serve lasagna and meatballs, to our more recent red carpet viewing get-togethers, we've found it the perfect way to enjoy a casual gathering of friends and family. This Sunday we're breaking out the bar cart because Mad Men is back!
We've been patiently waiting for almost a year to clink with Roger Sterling and gawk at the gorgeous Joan Harris. I just can't get enough of the wardrobe, the amazing sets and the daytime drinking scenes. To toast the return we'll be serving sidecars and bar snacks and turning up this Mad Men inspired play list to celebrate the 2 hour season 6 premiere this Sunday on AMC, 9pm EST.
