It’s Oscar Sunday….and you’re probably not attending the Oscars…..boo hoo! But don’t dismay, have your own Oscar party! Grab your friends, and pick the place with the biggest TV and do a potluck party.
Or get your butt dressed up and get out there….Enjoy some glitz and glam with your friends on Hollywood’s biggest night. Make a reservation at the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt.
Yes it’ll cost you…but hey, it’s only once a year. In case you didn’t know the Roosevelt was the site of the very first Academy Awards ceremony way back in 1929.
On this very special Oscar Sunday, party the night away with a viewing dinner with a six-course menu + cocktail for $89 ($99 with admission to the party). The show will be screened on four big plasma screens in the lobby, which will be transformed into a viewing lounge.
