The Green Scene at Zarwin Baum’s March Madness Party on St. Patrick’s Day

Are you tired of green clad people yet. Yesterday was the rare occasion, or maybe the once in 7 years occasion that the first day of March Madness fell on St. Patrick’s Day, as I remember the last time it happened and I shot this event. Some people didn’t want their photos published as they didn’t like the color green and they only wore said outfit on this day, or so they told me, ahem. Maybe that’s why this year it wasn’t an overwhelming number of people wearing green, but there were a few standouts and i got em.
Yesterday was Zarwin Baum’s Annual March Madness Party, and for the 4th year they held it at the Crystal Tea Room.
 With proceeds from the silent and live auctions, donations and food donations benefiting Philabundence.
 I will have photos at Philly Mag today, but I thought I would do a whole column on green outfits to give you an idea of what you could wear next St. Patrick’s Day, or any day you want to wear green.

Throughout the day, 2500+ invited attendees will enjoy food and drink, a silent auction, a Cigar Room, and pop-a-shot basketball, all while the excitement of the NCAA’s March Madness plays out on the screens.  Guests can also look forward to this year’s beer garden, featuring tastings from Anheuser-Busch,  Bank and Bourbon, Golia Vodka, Little Lion, New Liberty Distillery/Millstone Spirits Group, Revolution Taco, Smith’s Restaurant, Stateside Vodka, and Vesper.

 This year’s event boasts support from Apple Vacations, Citrin Cooperman, Del Frisco’s, Digital Benefit Advisors, DTI, ECBM, Golf Performance Institute, Help Me PCS, Iron Mountain, Jersey Man Magazine, Magna Legal Services, Robbini Bespoke, Rock Avenue Bow-Ties, Savills Studley, Signarama Center City, ToBox, West Capital Management, and Weston Fitness.

The Zarwin Baum March Madness party is for clients, and friends of the firm. It always amazes me how you can have 2500 people flow through the doors, yet it’s one of the hardest party’s to crash.

 Why I didn’t get full length on those pants. Look for these guys to be as snappy dressed at the Preakness on The Piazza coming up May 21. It is definitely the best spring party of the season, especially for the millennials.
