Ser’s ‘Veuve With a View’ Dinner Inspired This Love Post

The media invite came across my inbox like a swift kick from Frank Dux himself. Jean-Claude Van Damme in Dallas? For a special Ser dinner?

For a man who’s had his up and downs yet still managed to maintain a body crafted to perfection with legs engineered to defy the laws of physics, I thought only briefly of how it seemed strange that he would host a dinner in Dallas with tickets being a measly $169 per person.

Being such a hard target, I dropped my sewing kit and rushed out to Ser to embark on what I was certain would be the journey of a lifetime. Well, piss in my Wheaties, it turns out that it’s actually just a dinner featuring the other, and almost as famous, Le Grande Dame from Vueve Clicquot. Everyone knows the flagship yellow bottle from Vueve Clicquot and its power in granting men powers over women that often lead to broken hearts, so it was safe to say this could be a good night.
