OH, SO SOCIAL SEASON: The annual OSS Society dinner was held in Washington on October 21, and by all accounts, a smashing time was had. According to the Washington Times “Each guest received a complimentary crystal martini glass, and the official libation of the night was the “Fighting 69th Regimental Cocktail” consisting of “one-part Irish whiskey and three-parts chilled champagne.” The dinner menu of seared scallops, beef tenderloin and passion fruit savarin all came from recipes created by OSS Veteran Julia Child. The Times says: “the evening ended with the presentation of the William J. Donovan Award to CIA Director Gina Haspel, whose acceptance speech was punctuated by several standing ovations — and moments of hushed, close attention.”
