Roaring 20's Benefit for the Strand Theater Fri, Sept 16
Stranded in Time – A Bootleg Birthday Bash is Friday, September 16 from 7 until 11, at the baroque downtown fun center called the Strand Theater.
Tickets are $100, says Penne Mobley; the theme is the “roaring 20s.” Music will come from the Harmon Drew Super Group. Superior Steakhouse and Ernest’s New Orleans Restaurant and Bon Appetit wil make sure there is a roaring supper. Auction items will include signed posters of past shows and architectural renderings of the Strand, pre-construction.
Subterranean tours are $25 extra and worth it, says Danny Fogger - you shall see the sanctuary called the Gentleman’s smoking room. Booze will be served from bathtubs. The Strand's Andrea promises, additionally, "a lot of unannounced, fun, crazy stuff." See more at the Strand's web site.
