Smokin' Gents

| August 24, 2011 | Parties National

It was an evening for the gentlemen—a chance to gather, tell tall tales over cocktails and cigars, and drink in the luxe surrounding of the Balboa Bay Club. And there was the usual competitive edge, with bidding over auction winnings like a $1,800 bottle of Rémy Martin Louis XIII Cognac and a weekend at the five-star Cap Juluca Anguilla in the British West Indies. So it comes as no surprise that the 1221 Club’s Great Gentlemen’s Smoker & Lobster Clambake netted $58,000 for college scholarships. Cheers to that! Photos by Christopher Ziebarth
