Ring in the New Year with the silk-and-diamond decadence of The Great Gatsby as Baz Lurhmann's best films spring to life during this spectacular New Year's Eve party. Begin your stylish evening with a three-course dinner, followed by a performance of the popular show For the Record: Baz Luhrmann, featuring powerhouse performers from music, stage and screen reenacting iconic scenes and songs from Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, Strictly Ballroom and The Great Gatsby. After the show, Rockwell will be transformed into a Gatsby-style 1920s' retreat. Listen to live music while enjoying the delicious buffet and glass of champagne included in the ticket price. If you'd prefer to skip the seated dinner and show and commence straight to partying the night away, the VIP Party Only option takes place in Rockwell's dazzling second-floor VIP salon decorated Gatsby style, where you can enjoy the buffet, a champagne toast, a balloon drop and live music.

Talk about a great local "secret"! I'm all about the idea of an organization taking over an unconventional facility to create a one-time unique experience. Avon's Warehouse turned into a stage with a huge screen to watch the documentary, "Girls in the Band", which features women jazz players pioneering what is still predominantly a men's industry. And afterwards some of the women from the documentary performed. I am only a casual fan, getting my feet wet in the genre, but I can't imagine how anyone left without being a fan of jazz. As the facility host of the event, we all walked away with Avon freebies afterwards as well.
This was cultural learning experience, and would make a great date for anyone gay or straight. The audience trends to older white folks, and you definitely want to dress a little more business casual, but with Goldstar's rate, it was very affordable. And the audience was progressive minded, boo'ing and aww'ing at all the right moments on behalf of women/minority rights.
A very grassroots operation feel, which I love, The organizer Muse/ique puts on multiple events a season through a series called Uncorked, which features different genres of music all in the Pasadena/LA area. I'm definitely keeping my out for the future ones. They'll also have a summer series, which I imagine is like CalPhil or Pasadena Pops with an intimate feel to it.
