Hello lovelies,

Here are our grand weekend plans & a ticket update.

- Fri 12.29 - Dark DecaDance - After a year of testing the waters with our Dark Dance party, we're going darker and more decadent: a full-on kink play event meets goth dance party. Our very special guest DJ for this one is Xris Smack, the legendary party producer and DJ. The entire Loft will be both dance floor and play space! We're going more private and protected, too, locking it down to our consent-forward sexy House of Scorpio membership club. Join us there (link in signature)! Signup is quick and easy, with no multi-month commitment, and memberships starts at just $5, while full benefits kick in at the $15 level. HoS does 5-7 events per month, so once you're a member, you can check out mixers, movies, makeout parties, and more.

- Sat/Sun 12.30-31 - The Black And White Masked Ball - G&S NYE weekend blowout, both Saturday and Sunday of the big weekend. The best hot jazz and swing bands in NYC, OTT burlesque and variety, vintage glamour dress code...a magical immersive NYE like only G&S can do. We're doing a 24hr flash sale for the Saturday event: $5 off an already-affordable glamourous evening with code "minus5". Sunday, NYE proper, no longer has Low Income tickets, and less than half of VIP remain. Ticket sales always take off at this point...don't wait till last minute, especially if you want a reserved seat.

"A pinnacle of New York's social history," the original ball was the glorious 1966 creation of already-infamous writer Truman Capote. Royalty and Hollywood idols, authors and political powerhouses filled the imposing ballroom in strict shades of black and white, masked and mysterious, amidst the Plaza Hotel's signature red accents.

Expect the surreal and the sublime in shades of black and white, rich sounds of jazz, brass and swing whisking your body into a fervor, dancers swirling like op-art animations, aerialists in dizzying patterns soaring overhead, dance divas shimmering in feathers and rhinestones, feats of fantastic physical strength, mysterious clairvoyants to divine your future, and booty-shaking DJs.

With NYC' best vintage bands delivering three full dance sets of irresistible hot jazz and swing...

Sat: Svetlana & The Delancey Five, recently hitting #1 on Billboard's Traditional Jazz charts. An "exuberant, foot-stomping dance party" (WPIX11TV) by "New York City's darling" (Time Out NY) "exceptional vocalist and songwriter" (Wall Street Journal).

Sun: "Today’s premier swing band" (Broadway World) Danny Jonokuchi & The Revisionists. Danny has contributed to multiple Grammy-winning projects, is the recipient of numerous awards, and has played to critical acclaim on many of the world's most famous jazz stages.

And live performances during and between bands...
- Glittering classic burlesque by Qualms Galore and Greek goddess Pandora
- Snake-charming oriental dance by Aubrey Coletti
- Feats of aerial prowess by Kyla Ernst-Alper [Sat] and Andreas Fenix [Sun]
- More live acts TBA!
