Saturday, February 4, 7-11:30pm, at the University Club
The event you’ve all been waiting for is back! Join us at the PTO Maskenball, an adults-only formal costume dance hosted this year at the lovely University Club of St. Paul. The U Club was a second home to F. Scott Fitzgerald and many other St. Paul socialites in the 1920’s, thus we thought it fitting that the theme this year is Roaring 20's. (A themed costume is encouraged but not required.) There will be dancing, a German DJ, appetizers, prizes, a full bar, and wonderful ambiance at the University Club.
Tickets are available. Tickets are on sale now at $30 per person. TCGIS staff may purchase a ticket for $15, and admission is free for our interns.
We are seeking volunteers. Even a small amount of effort can help make Maskenball a success. Please consider signing up to volunteer.
Want to make it a deluxe night out? Dine before the event at the University Club. Dinner entrees range from $20 to $35, reservations are required, and seating is limited. This is a great opportunity to experience a restaurant typically limited to club members only!
What happened in the 1920's?
Gangsters like Al Capone made waves. Flappers shimmied their fringes to the Charleston. Athletes like Babe Ruth set a new bar. Actors like Rudolph Valentino and William Haines defined tall, dark, and handsome. Music was thriving with great artists like Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, Glenn Miller, and many more. Movies learned to talk. The Republicans ruled the top office with Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover. Coco Chanel pushed fashion into a modern elegance. Comedians like Charlie Chaplin and the Marx brothers drew laughs. Agatha Christie created suspense. And women finally gained the right to vote.
Congratulations to free ticket winners!
