In the company of ‘Mad Men’

Season two kicks off in L.A.

Bouffants and beehives were bobbing all over Musso & Frank Grill Monday following a screening of “Mad Men’s” season-two opener at the Egyptian Theater.

The waitresses were outfitted in appropriate early ’60s headgear as they passed out the martinis, mai tais and Marlboro red packs at the shoulder-to-shoulder after-party for the AMC drama. You know a show is hot when some of the town’s top writers and showrunners attend the premiere out of sheer fandom.

The preem party doubled as the cast and crew’s celebration for bagging 16 Emmy noms, a groundbreaking feat for a basic-cable drama.

Among those offering their heartiest congratulations to creator Matt Weiner, star Jon Hamm and the rest of the ensemble were Lionsgate’s Jon Feltheimer and Kevin Beggs; AMC’s Charlie Collier and Christina Wayne; and thesps Kate Walsh and Dana Delany.

Weiner soaked up the good wishes and tantalized partygoers by promising that he’s only begun to scratch the surface of Hamm’s oh-so-mysterious Don Draper.

“Don Draper’s story this year is going to blow people away,” Weiner promised.
