Hooked: The art of the party


What do you get when you invite hundreds of movers, shakers, and merry makers to mingle at the University of Virginia Art Museum? You get The Hook's second annual holiday bash, which happened on December 10.

In addition to the ever-present art adorning the museum's walls, John D'earth's Free Bridge Quintet provided entertainment for the 300-plus festively attired guests who gathered to celebrate another year of savory stories and intoxicating information.

All in all, it was an evening that left partygoers hungering for more.
