Let's toast the Best of the Twin Cities
"In my younger and more venerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. 'Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone,' he told me, 'just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.' So begins The Great Gatsby, and while F. Scott Fitzgerald might not have known it, he may have been talking about how great we have it in the Twin Cities. Not everyone can be lucky enough to have the advantage of living here. In celebration of our epic Best of the Twin Cities issue (on stands Wednesday April 17), we are throwing a big-time bash, and we would love to see you there.
Our Great Gatsby-themed event will commence on Thursday, April 18, at Aria. At 7 p.m. the doors will open for general admission. VIPs will be treated to early entry at 6 p.m. as well as access to the upper level with a private bar.
At 8 p.m. the sweet, soulful sounds of Davina and the Vagabonds will fill the venue. There will also be plenty of nosh, provided by Red Stag, Cafe Barbette, Bryant-Lake Bowl, Pat's Tap, Los Ocampos, Pizza Luce, Sushi Fix, and St. Croix Chocolate Company.
Now, this isn't your average garden party. We want to see all our friends dressed to the nines. Opitz Outlet will be on hand to secretly select 20 of the best-dressed attendees to win a gift card to Opitz and be included in our online slideshow. Plus, Evolution Salon will have a mini salon on site to touch up your Gatsby style.
Tickets are just $15 for general admission and can be purchased here
