Remember, for Oscar night preparations, the night of the show, and a few days after, that Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland and Orange starting on Sunday the 17th and last through Tuesday the 26th. On the day of the Oscars part of Orange Ave will be closed as will the Highland freeway off ramps. This will impact traffic around the Magic Castle, so adjust your timing accordingly.
And speaking of the Oscars, the Castles viewing party, which features a buffet, soft drinks, games, and prizes starts at 2:30 in the Inner Circle. Just $20 per person. Contact Ben Roman for reservations.
The man who created the archetypal Dove Act, Channing Pollock, will be honored through a Member Meet-Up talk by Patrick Martin, who is writing the great performers biography, on February 20. The no-host dinner starts at 6 PM (contact Erin Chick for reservations) and the Meet-Up starts at 8 PM in the Inner Circle.
Its a Hoot-Mahn!:
Fitzgeralds Whos Hoo taping, with guests Brent Geris, David Minkin, and Pop Haydn starts at 8 PM in the Inner Circle on February 28.
