Wolfgang Puck Menu Inspirations, Ballet Dancers and Seven Screens of Stars
Academy Awards: Sunday, February 27
5:30pm red carpet arrivals
7:00pm Oscar viewing party
No fee to attend
Chicago’s Kit Kat Lounge and Supper Club will honor the Oscars with a viewing party like no other. This year’s “Black Swan” movie theme provides the inspiration for dramatic black and white decor, live ballet dance performances, the recreation of Wolfgang Puck’s previous Governors Ball party dishes, Black Swan Diva Aurora Sexton delighting the crowd and themed martinis. Lucky guests will win tickets to the Joffrey Ballet and the University Ballet of Chicago.
Starting at 5:30pm, Kit Kat’s seven large screens will air the E! network’s red carpet arrivals, followed by live ballet performances from the University Ballet of Chicago at 6:00pm. The dancers will perform intermittently until 8:00pm. Throughout the evening, Kit Kat’s Diva Aurora Sexton will channel “Black Swan,” entertaining all with her lavish costume (photo available) and over-the-top interpretation. The 83rd annual Academy Awards will be shown live, with sound, at 7:00pm.
Prizes and giveaways will be awarded in addition to the ballet tickets, from Black Swan movie merchandise to St. Germain liqueur. The special menu offerings are listed below. All martinis are half-price from 5:30pm-2:00am. Table reservations are available by calling Kit Kat.
