Rose was reminiscing at a soiree I hosted on a recent sultry evening on Chicago's North Side.
The couple will be honoured guests at this week's soiree and the evening's success will matter more to them than anyone.
Origin of soiree
by 1793, from French soirée, from soir "evening," from Old French soir, from Latin sero (adv.) "late, at a late hour," from serum "late hour," neuter of serus "late"
