Reel Social Club ‘Seam to Screen’ Brunch this Saturday
The last time Donnybrook attended a Reel Social Club party, they had free beer, Twister, makeout rooms, and roller disco girls (pilfered from Denver’s roller derby teams) passing out Twinkies on silver platters. Between you and I, one or two of the roller disco girls had indulged in the free beer. Let me tell you, nothing in this world is more fun than drunk roller derby girls. NOTHING! In fact, I’m petitioning that we change the expression “barrel of monkeys” to “barrel of drunk roller derby girls.” Non?
But that was an afterparty. The Reel Social Club’s Seam to Scream party this weekend, a daytime affair, sounds like a more much classy shindig – although equally fun. Starting at 10:30 they’re serving up brunch and bottomless mimosas, musical stylings by the best ever college station, Radio 1190, a fashion show by Buffalo Exchange, and a photo booth.
Once you get a nice daytime buzz, they’re showing a private screening of Bill Cunningham New York, a documentary on the fashion photographer known for his decades-long body of work covering everything from candid street shots to charity soirees in the Times Style section. Originally an anthropologist, Cunninham has become an industry staple, winning the praise of icons like Anna Wintour with his obsessive chronicling of fashion trends. The doc features commentary from Wintour herself, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, and David Rockefeller.
It all takes place this Saturday, Feb 25th at Denver Film Center on Colfax. It’s $25 bucks (remember: bottomless mimosas) or FREE for Reel Social Club members! Get tickets or RSVP on Facebook. It’s going to be a barrel of roller derby girls. Still no?
