New Year's Eve Silver Screen Ball

DJ night
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Red Derby's annual New Year's Eve party goes goes with an "Old Hollywood" theme this year, according to co-owner Sasha Carter, suggesting an unofficial dress code of "feather boas and top hats" for walking the red carpet. A professional photographer will be taking black-and-white glamour shots. In addition to a free midnight champagne toast, the neighborhood bar will be selling $4 champagne cocktails all night, and every table gets its own free bottle of champagne. Dance to swing music until midnight, with the usual eclectic mix of modern tunes afterward. (And yes, if you just want a $5 beer-and-a-shot combo on the rooftop deck, you'll be able to get that as usual.)
