Portraits of Dorrian’s-part 3: Annie Churchill

Monday, February 14, 2011

From the pages of AVENUE’s February issue, one of the many memories of the Unofficial Preppy Clubhouse…

I was dating this really hot older guy and got dumped by him for another girl. A few weeks later, I went to Dorrian’s and met this amazing, cool, beautiful girl. Two minutes into our conversation, I found out that she was the girl he had dumped me for. I said, ‘You mean you’re the one? Oh I could care less now—you’re awesome. I totally understand why he did it.’ To this day, Alexandra Lind Rose is still one of my dearest friends. Who else can say they met one of their best friends at a bar? That says a lot for Dorrian’s. Oh, and the guy? We both lost touch with him. —Annie Churchill
