The world of James Bond 007 invaded Hotel Lafayette on New Year's Eve, much to the delight of the hundreds of Western New Yorkers in attendance. Layers upon layers of Bond-themed fun was abound in every nook and cranny of the hotel. Playing off of the event's name Lafayette Royale, there were several rooms featuring fantasy gaming tables and even slot machines lining the hallways. In the Grand Ballroom you could find the 70 member Buffalo Niagara Concert band playing big band music, giant projections of scenes from various Bond films, and DJ Cutler and Dan Harper and the Magic Show. Meandering through every room and hallway you were bound to bump into Bond Girls, a Chinese dragon, the queen of England, royal guards, showgirls, and cigarette girls, to name a few. Not only was the "cast" of Lafayette Royale completely decked out, but so were the people that attended. Check out the photo gallery to see shots of this wild event and to see who showed off their innermost Bond the best.
