COME TO THE WATERBURY PALACE'S PARTY OF THE DECADE
Starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 1 with an outdoor pre-party on the loading dock and lasting until the wee hours of midnight, the Palace is rolling out the red carpet to all areas of this grand and exotic facade. Termed "The Party of the Decade," guests will be encouraged to wander freely from the gilded majestic foyer to the cozy Poli Club, make a quick stop at a Tiki Bar, pause at a food truck, go night clubbing on the stage and have yourself a ball, all for a good cause: the Palace's tenth anniversary.
On the loading dock at 5 p.m., you'll discover a bevy of food trucks like Fryborg where everything is fried to a crispy perfection all the way to Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes that are a delectable delight. Crosseyed Cat, a popular local group, will start the evening off with a musical bang until 8 p.m.
The next venue will start at 6 p.m. with the opening of the luxury lounge of the Palace's Grand Foyer. Guests will enjoy trays of passed hors d'oeuvres, specialty drinks of bourbon and martinis and the smooth sounds of The Jazz Trio. A few marble steps away, up in the Poli Club, grab a plate of delicious nibbles, a cocktail, and sit back and enjoy a list of award-winning jazz artists from 7 p.m. to the bewitching hour. Fancy yourself a cool tropical drink, the mezzanine lobby will feature a Tiki Bar. Find a seat under a palm tree and enjoy the selections from a live DJ from Powerstation Events starting at 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Put your dancing shoes on and glide across the elegant Palace stage in a unique night club atmosphere as local recording artist Timmy Maia performs with Bock and Blu starting at 7:30 p.m. for the next four hours. If you're into karaoke, the Keys to the City's dueling piano show will lure you to the orchestra lobby from 10 p.m. on, to hear contemporary pop tunes. What a great interactive crowd pleaser!
The brainchild of Development Officer Natalie Lawlor and CEO of the Palace Frank Tavera, this plethora of parties has something for everyone and will showcase all the venues the Palace has to offer, with food stations, craft beers, specialty bars, desserts and tons of live entertainment. For tickets ($65), which includes everything offered and 2 drink vouchers, call the Palace, 100 East Main Street, Waterbury at 203-346-2000 or online at www.palacetheaterct.org. Leave your tuxedos and gowns in the closet as the evening is relaxed, casual dress.
