Amy Poehler certainly knows how to party.
The Parks and Recreation star, who headed to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to be honored as Hasty Pudding’s famed “2015 Woman of the Year” event on Thursday, had a ball spending time with the popular theater club from Harvard University.
After the receiving her big honor on Thursday, which included the annual Pudding Pot presentation and a parade through Harvard Square, Poehler, 43, headed to Noir Bar in Charles Hotel, for a party with the Harvard crew.
Looking chic dressed in black, Amy and the other guests sipped the “Yes Please” cocktail, appropriately named for her book, which will be on the bar’s menu all month. A portion of the proceeds will go to to Worldwide Orphans, the organization for which Amy serves as ambassador.
“She was really lovely and it was a great event,” said a hotel employee.
The previous evening, Poehler and a girlfriend headed to Italian restaurant Rialto, also in the Charles Hotel.
“She was super nice and super lovely,” said a rep for the restaurant, who added that Amy took the time to say hello to chef/owner Jody Adams. “They tried a bunch of stuff on the menu.”
Amy and her friend sampled a variety of dishes, including burrata with eggplant agrodolce, ginger-curry jam, olives, celery, and mint and bucatini with lobster, green and red tomatoes, chilis, and saffron. Another favorite was the boda di Rospo, a seared monkfish saddle with roasted squash, cranberry beans, sage pesto, and bottarga.
