Can’t get enough of the movies? Then this weekend is a perfect time to rush out and catch a few you’ve not yet seen before the winner is decided! I have seen both Avatar and The Hurt Locker;  distinctly different films competing for the same prize.  The best thing is they were directed by exes James Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow.  Who says marriage is the way to go!? 

No matter who wins the big prize for Best Picture a number of great opportunities for viewing the ceremonies with others exist around town.  Tickles Bar is hosting an Oscar night party in their still relatively new location.  Featuring the Avatar cocktail and an opportunity to win a $50 bar tab for picking the correct winners, it sounds like a fun opportunity to grab a nosh and maybe have the bar cover the drinks!  If you are looking for a way to celebrate Hollywood and give back to the community at the same time consider attending the Aegis Foundation event at The Hotel Ivy.




Tonight the only recommendation I have is march on down to Rumours/Innuendo for Mama Stevie’s Blowout Birthday Bash (god that Grrl’s gettin OLD!)   Love ya Stevie!  Whatever you do this weekend – make it safe and put some Spring in your step.

Ciao
