File Under: Sipping & Swinging





This recession is causing many of us to make touch choices, and unfortunately, that often means less money is patronizing the arts these days. One way to raise money for a good cause is to throw a damn good party–after all, who doesn’t want to take their mind off this economy? This Sunday night (May 24), if you have $30 to spare and you’re in the city for the holiday, you should make a hop, skip, and jump over to the Dreamland Gala fundraiser in Carroll Gardens. Starting at 9 p.m., Michael Arenella and his 12-piece Dreamland Orchestra will perform during this speakeasy-themed night of music, dancing, cocktails, and treats. Don your best Roaring Twenties getup, sip from an open bar with top mixologists courtesy of Hendrick’s Gin and D.O.C. wine shop, and nibble complimentary gourmet charcuterie from Stinky Brooklyn. Oh, and should you have the luxury of a few more dollars to spare, there will be a silent auction featuring delights such as vintage items, cigars, and custom hats. All of the money raised will go toward the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island June 6-7, which will feature daylong jazz performances for a mere $5 admission.
