This time around the theme was The Great Gatsby and the event took place in an historic Point Loma mansion that has hosted the Duke of Windsor and Charlie Chaplin among other notable dignitaries.
The Great Gatsby was set in the Roaring 20’s during Prohibition, so fix’d up a Speakeasy complete with password emailed out the night before. Cocktail attire was a must, with special access to a secret wine cellar given to those with 1920’s flair or wearing all white for Labor Day. Croquet and a variety of other flapper-era surprises also took place.
Here are a few images of our event!
