Great Gatsby

Oakroom hosting ‘Great Gatsby’ ’74 movie and dinner June 1

You don’t have to be a Leo DiCaprio lover to find the June 1 Great Gatsby Dinner at The Oakroom a great event.

The five-course dinner will, no doubt, be an appropriately flashy presentation set in the period-correct dining room, where “Great Gatsby” author F. Scott Fitzgerald likely ate. (He was thrown out of the Seelbach Bar, legend has it.)
The evening begins with ‘20s classic cocktails and appetizers running from 6-6:30 p.m. a cocktail reception featuring ‘20s classic cocktails.

During dinner, guests will watch the 1974 version of movie, “The Great Gatsby,” starring the debatably hunkier-than-Leo Robert Redford. And at the end of the meal, guests will receive a copy of Fitzgerald’s timeless book.

(Good news seeing that none of us have our high school copies of that book!)

Cost for the dinner is $99 per person (tax and gratuity not included), and includes complimentary valet parking at the Seelbach.
