Great Gatsby Champagne Party

UPDATE: In the spirit of the poverty vs. wealth theme in the movie and the book, I've added a charity to the event, for all those who wish to make a donation to help fight local poverty. See below for more details.

*************************************************

UPDATE: The event will be at George Ultra Lounge at 1137 Hamilton Street. They've reserved a portion of the venue for us.

They'll also be bringing in a DJ and offering our group the following drink specials:

Glass of sparkling wine (Spanish Cava)  $6 (down from$8)
Champagne cocktail $8 (down from $10)
Heineken $5 (down from $7)

**************************************************

With the release of the big-screen adaption of the Great Gatsby, it seems like the perfect excuse to dress up and enjoy some champagne and delicious cocktails... while meeting some new people in a relaxed, happy hour setting!

There is no cover charge. However, there will be an opportunity to donate to a local charity (the Variety Children's Charity) and help the fight against local childhood poverty. Donations are entirely voluntary.

    Thanks to everyone who came out on Thursday! Thank you especially to Photograph N for taking awesome pictures, DJ George Venetis for some awesome electroswing remixes, and to David Hannay for setting us up a George Ultra Lounge and giving us free reign of the entire venue! And most of all, thank you to everyone who contributed to the Salvation Army! Your generosity will make a difference in the lives of many local men & women in the fight against poverty!

    p.s. Feel free to connect with me on facebook, if you'd like to be included in future champagne/theme party invites: https://www.facebook.com/kschmor

    ***a few quick notes/reminders***

    1. We’re expecting a packed house. Please be patient on drink/food orders once things get busy (I’m sure the service staff will be working as fast as they can). 2. The DJ starts at 9. I’ve prepared an electroswing setlist before that.

    3. There’s no cover charge. Although I encourage everyone to consider donating something, however small, to the charity (and to inspire others to do the same).

    See you all tom night!

    I've been looking forward to this meet up for so long! I love the idea of dressing up in 20's clothes and sipping champagne, but I can't make it because it's my sisters birthday. (I tried very hard to convince her to change her plans, but no cigar)

    This party is going to be awesome! Let's take it to the next level: In the spirit of the poverty vs. wealth theme in the movie and the book, I've added a charity to the event (the Salvation Army), for all those who wish to make a donation to help fight local poverty. I'll take care of all of the details. Dontations are completely voluntary.
