You knew it was gonna happen.
At least one spot in the city was going to throw a "Black Swan"-themed Oscars bash. And we're not mad at Kit Kat Lounge and Supper Club, whose annual viewing parties have never disappointed.
This year's event—beginning at 5:30pm on Feb. 27 with "red carpet" arrivals—includes dishes inspired by Wolfgang Puck's legendary Governor's Ball Oscar Party, dancers prancing around from University Ballet of Chicago, and "Black Swan" diva Aurora Sexton performing.
Cocktail specials for the night are the $5 Black Swan (Effen vodka, Black Sambuca, garnished with a black feather) and White Swan (Effen black cherry, a splash of St. Germain, Hypnotiq and a splash of champagne garnished with a white feather).
Executive Chef Mark Kasper will do his interpretations of Puck's Tempura Tiger Prawns, Mini Wagyu Burgers and Black Truffle Chicken Pot Pie. Dishes range $9-$18.
Seven large screens will be tuned into the awards ceremony and entrance is free.
