The Linger Longer Toast was developed for Sally Szwed’s 5 Pairings event at the Sunview Luncheonette. The toast is a simple social choreography that involves people to pair up briefly, make eye contact, and drink to one another. Each participant received a glass of red wine (flavor-paired to match the language of the toast) and a custom-stamped, custom-scented cocktail napkin with the basic choreographic instructions. The toast was read aloud by the artist, timed as a music to accompany the “dance.”
