6.23 [sold out], 7.14, 9.22 - The Grand Victorian Garden Tea

Sundays, 4-8pm, $40, all ages, rain or shine
at the historical Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden, 421 E 61st St

Event on Facebook | Buy tickets
Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio #gsvictorianball


 

Join us as we travel back in time to the Victorian Age, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city (which at that time extended only as far north as 14th Street). It's a proper turn-of-century tea party, with finger sandwiches, scones and fancies, in a darling garden attached to an impossible Victorian cottage overlooking modern Manhattan. Historical chef Rebecca Leigh Silverman will hand-make delectable treats from antique recipes, and give a small talk about each dish.

All guests will have access to the museum as well as garden: come early to take advantage of individual tours led by the docents of the musem. In case of rain, the event will happen indoors.

The menu for 7.14:
Finger sandwiches:
- Egg Salad & Watercress
- Radishes, Butter & Sea Salt
- Smoked Salmon, Dill & Cucumber
Cherry Scones with Clotted Cream & Preserves
Victoria Sponge with Cream & Strawberries
Chocolate Tartlets with White Chocolate Marbling
Madeleines

Activities will include:
- Victorian garden games, including Game of Graces and Battledore and Shuttlecock
- Hand-drawn portraits of guests by Anastasios Taso Megaris

Dress code:
1800-1910s summer garden party, with all-white, cream and pastel tones encouraged. No modern casual wear, please - though modern cocktail summer attire is easy to accessorize with a nod to Victorian times. Costume inspiration Pinterest board (not ours) here.

About our venue:
Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, and converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1826, this stone building sits on land originally owned by Colonel William Stephens Smith, and his wife Abigail Adams Smith, daughter of John Adams. The hotel operated until 1833, at which point the house became the home for three generations of a New York City family.

A taste of previous turn-of-century G&S events:

For one night only, our sexy clubhouse becomes a full-on strip club, with a pole stage, an array of lap dance-ready seating, and our very own Champagne Room. There will be eight dancers to entertain you: each a hand-picked burlesque, pole or circus star stepping outside the boundaries of their genre to spend the whole night dancing for you on stage and in your lap. Featuring:

  • Peekaboo Pointe, fastest tassel-twirler from East to West (and our cover girl)
  • Princess Tess, the petite pinup
  • Gal Friday, the five-alarm fire
  • Audrey Love, the tantalizing tease
  • Lydia Vengeance, the manic pixie nightmare witch
  • Vonka, the BaVonkaDonk
  • And as Champagne Room King & campy club announcer: charming magician Eric Walton

Once the dancers are done at 1am, the stage is yours to shake your booty on. Live out your strip fantasies on our stage as DJ Ceremony provides the beats late into the night.

Rules of the club: the usual HoS dress code & code of conduct apply. Dress up, or you will be turned away at the door. Tip generously (dancers, wait & bar staff). Get lap dances: they're the best part, and only $10. Respect the dancers. Keep your hands to yourself (or your partner). Nudity is fine on the stage, but no private parts on our furniture. Please treat our pole gently; no wild swinging.

*Reserved seats ($45) include: 9pm admission + a seat at a 4-person table with a view of both stages + wait service + access to reserved lap dance seat

Sun, July 28, 1-6pm, FREE, all ages
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - fill out form on top of page for address auto-reply

Event on Facebook | Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio

Miss Scorpio teams up with fellow dress-up addicts and craft-makers for some closet-cleaning and handmade clothing & accessory shopping. Think one-of-a-kind vintage, feathers and fascinators, unique jewelry, and lots and lots of sparkles. Of course even divas have days off, so there will be plenty of cheap casual wear finds alongside costume and vintage pieces. Plus: by-donation champagne & small snacks, chill soundtrack, and lounging in our awesome loft and sprawling roof. Perfect summer Sunday.



6.28 - The Cocktail Experiment + July Babies Bday Party

Fri, July 26, 8pm-12am, FREE + FREE drinks if you bring a cocktail ingredient, 21+ (25+ recommended)
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - fill out form on top of page for address auto-reply

Event on Facebook | Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio / #thecocktailexperiment

Every fourth Friday, enjoy inventive craft cocktails in a better-than-bar atmosphere: a sexy low-lit loft, lots of couches, sprawling roof, chill music, serious skills behind the bar, no attitude, no cover. Weekend bars are awful; come hide out here. We'll make you something delicious.

Plus, the Experiment: craft cocktail pop-up meets Iron Chef. One kickass bartender, a fully stocked bar, and YOU bringing a liquid challenge: a bottle of something unusual for our pro to turn into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. If your bottle is used in creation of a cocktail, you and a friend get a complimentary round (up to three friends, if it's a full size bottle of something excellent!). No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious.

Is your birthday in July? Your first experiment is on the house (show us your ID). You can even get in touch to reserve a couch, arrange party favors, etc. Yes, you can order food to be delivered, too. For everyone else: free un-birthday treats!

*Tips on bringing ingredients: we welcome both liquor and mixer challenges, but please no basic juices or sodas...that's not what craft cocktails are made of. Consider: half-size bottles, homemade infusions or syrups, that forgotten bottle of weird booze you don't know what to do with, unique amaros, bitters or vermouths. Most importantly, since whatever you brought will be in your free cocktail round, choose flavors you enjoy. Small request: nothing that tastes of anise or licorice, please! If that's the flavor you want, we have plenty of that in the bar, including the best absinthe you'll ever have.
