If you had to pick a work of great literature to emulate on a Saturday night, we'd definitely steer away from Lord of the Flies and The Grapes of Wrath.
But The Great Gatsby is filled with enough decadence and debauchery to make modern-day bottle service lounges seem tame by comparison.
Plus, trust in Leo. The man knows something about the good things in life.
Tomorrow night, step back in time about 90 years for the Dallas Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival, an opulent party with a 1920s theme and more than 150 whiskeys and spirits for the tasting. They'll be served alongside food from Chamberlain's Steak & Chophouse, Cook Hall, and Whiskey Cake.
Flappers will be dancing to tunes from The Texas Gypsies, while you try your luck at blackjack before kicking back in the cigar lounge.
An extra $25 gets you in 90 minutes early, plus access to a VIP room all night long.
Because if you're gonna go Gatsby, might as well go all the way.
