Next weekend most of us will hunker down with our Oscar polls/ personal recommendations and watch as we replay the last five months of movie watching – on just a smaller screen. If you’re looking to jazz things up a little bit this year be sure to check out the Hotel 1000 Oscar Party: “An Evening With The Stars, the Swankiest Party of the Year”
Your $75/per person ticket gives you heavy appetizers from the Hotel 1000 BOKA Kitchen + Bar, cocktail upon arrival, two drink tickets, a swag bag, legit red carpet photos, prizes for best celebrity look-alike and best outfit, entertainment and, of course, the telecast of the event. Buy tickets here. Hotel 1000, 1000 First Avenue, Downtown Seattle, 206-957-1000, www.hotel1000seattle.com.
Beginning at 4 p.m., guests will arrive on the red carpet featuring photo opportunities just like the Hollywood’s best celebrities. Guests will be welcomed with a glass of champagne and then escorted into Hotel 1000′s expansive event. At 5 p.m., a live telecast of the Oscars will begin featuring red carpet arrivals and this year’s Academy Awards hosted by James Franco and former Disney darling Anne Hathaway.
Proceeds from the event benefit Reel Grrls, an organization which offers a variety of hands-on workshops for teenage girls in specific skills including animation, cinematography, script writing and more. http://www.reelgrrls.org/
