Gee, whiz! That first weekend in February is already starting to look busier than a bootlegger during Prohibition. Just announced was Mary Parker’s receiving the Sandi Haddock Impact Award at the Dallas Go Red for Women Luncheon on Friday, February 3, and then there’s the Super Bowl down in Houston on Sunday, February 5.
Wedged between Friday and Sunday, the Dallas Museum of Art will become a “Speakeasy” on Saturday, February 4, to celebrate the “Shaken, Stirred, Styled: The Art of the Cocktail” exhibition presently underway at the DMA.
Sure, the showing of cocktail ware from the late 19th century kicked off Saturday, November 12, but if you wait until February 4, you’ll be able to wear that snazzy, jazzy roaring 20’s attire for Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge to judge for prizes.
As for the fun, the Hamon Atrium will be the spot for craft cocktails with “delicious nibbles,” music by the Singapore Slingers, dance tutorials by The Rhythm Room professionals, gaming tables and a photo booth.
For the highrollers, the Focus One Gallery will be transformed into the VIP Hideaway with an open bar, premier seating, a complimentary ROXOR Gin Garden, more yummies, private gaming tables, “jazz-age hits with a twist, dedicated dance instructors and more.”
Entry tix for cool cats and kittens to the Speakeasy plus two drink tickets are going for $50 for DMA members and $65 for non-members. Big daddies and fabulous flappers will be able to get into the VIP Hideaway and the Speakeasy for $90 for DMA members and $100 for the non-members.
BTW, to make parking for the night simple, it will be self-parking on a first-come, first-self-parked basis.
So, practice the spit curls and pull out your spats because the 20’s are going to be the bee’s knees.
