Friends and family gather for G-Boy's big day
By Judy Keenan
Leonard Jacobs loves his Shih Tzu, Golden Boy (aka G-Boy or G) so much that when G-Boy turned thirteen Leonard threw him a lavish Bark-Mitzvah. In a cleverly crafted vernacular for dogs a Bark Mitzvah is the dog equivalent of the coming of age ceremony for young men (Bar Mitzvah) or young women (Bat Mitzvah) of the Jewish faith. Invitations were professionally printed and sent to Palm Beach friends who enjoy any excuse for a good party.
A luncheon to remember
The invitation promised a "luncheon to remember" at the very swank and upscale Chesterfield on 01/10/10 at 12:30. In a series of P.S. and P.P.Ss on the back of the invitation guests were advised that the women should look good and that there is a Nordstrom in Boca. For men that the event was black tie optional.
