Kit Kat Throws 'Avatar'-Themed Oscars Party!
We're actually excited about this!
The Academy Awards—as well as the Red Carpet and Oscars viewing parties—have become painfully predictable, so thank God we've got the whole "Avatar" theme to shake things up this year.
It would be a little awkward to go to a "Precious," "Inglourious Basterds" or "Up in the Air" themed bash, but we'll welcome the behemoth blue Na’vi any day!
Lakeview's Kit Kat hosts the party, which means its usually lounge-like dining room and bar will be transformed into the mysteriously beautiful planet of Pandora.
Guests will walk a blue carpet (first 50 guests get a gift bag filled with blue boas and Hpnotiq giveaways), and Kit Kat Diva Aurora Sexton will be decked out as the exotic warrior princess Neytiri.
Of course, being Kit Kat, there will be live performances in drag, plus a drink special. The Avatar Princess martini comes with Effen vodka, Hpnotiq liqueur, a splash of pineapple juice and adorned with rock candy and a blue glow stick for $5.
Plus, the awards will be shown on seven oversize projection screens throughout the venue. Pay attention because one lucky person will have a chance to win a grand prize worth $500 (prize includes "Avatar" PlayStation 3 video game and a Swarovski crystal-bedazzled Hpnotiq bottle).
Doors open at 5:30pm March 7; awards begin at 7pm. No cover.
