Oscar events for your consideration

If we did not have other plans, you would find me at the Reel Grrls 2nd Annual Oscar Party at CD News sponsor Central Cinema.  Reel Grrls is a CD-based charity that believes in “empowering young women from diverse communities to realize their power, talent, and influence through media production.  Options for tickets are between $25 and $79 depending on the type of meal that you choose (note that $25 of each ticket benefits Reel Grrls and is tax deductible).  This year, they will be cheering on Best Director nominee Kathryn Bigelow to become the first woman to win Best Director – should she win for her film, The Hurt Locker.  Festivities begin at 4 pm.

Bottleneck Lounge announces that they will be serving up drinks inspired by Best Actorn nominees.  Join them for Oscar-viewing beginning at 5.

If you seek to avoid Oscar hype altogether, Hotel Sorrento’s Drinking Lessons may be for you.  Tomorrow, get acquainted with the green fairy at “Drinking Lessons: An Absinth Soiree” (note that the cost is only $20 – most in the Drinking Lessons series have averaged $55), hosted by Robert Hess.
