Flappers & Philosophers
Andrew Freedman Home (1125 Grand Concourse, Bronx)
$15 in advance
Please arrive in period attire or fancy dress.
On Sunday May 20th, join Winkel & Balktick and No Longer Empty, for a journey into the world of F. Scott Fitzgerald and his coterie of colorful characters. Indulge in the company of upper crust aristocrats, nouveau riche playboys, daring bootleggers, Bohemian artist-types and kickline-ready chorus girls.
Our venue is the Andrew Freedman Home, an enormous Italian palazzo-style villa completed in 1924. Freedman, a Tammany Hall operator and financier, built it as a retirement palace for wealthy socialites who had fallen on hard times.
We will begin our celebration upon the limestone terrace and verdant lawn with bandstands and champagne, croquet, bocce & badminton by Gaylen Hamelton. In the evening, the doors will be thrown open and we will continue our gallivanting within the recently-restored book-lined Library, games of chance in the Billiards Room, and of course dancing the night away in the opulent Grand Ballroom.
The day’s entertainment, is being curated by Mistress of Ceremonies, Juliette Campbell, of Shanghai Mermaid & The Red Lotus Room.
