This Friday, January 18th from 7p.m. to 10 p.m. get ready to go out and party a la Mad Men style. "Resolve to evolve" is a great way to start the New Year and meet with many of Austin's movers and shakers. Not only will you be transported back to the era where going out for the evening was a styling event, but you will connect with fellow Austinites that have placed their mark on our wonderful city. And the entertainment, food, open bar, silent auction and ambience will make this night, a night to remember for a very long time.
Start the new year off right & join The Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, NSIDE Austin Magazine & Social Gravy PR January18th as they celebrate Community, Philanthropy, and Leadership with some of the most influential leaders from the past & present in Austin ,Texas.
This will be a Red Carpet event unlike any other. The Scottish Rite Theater (207 West 18th St.) is perfect for this 1960′s Party with its dark wood interior and dimmed lighting, it makes for an amazing experience that is sure to take us back to an era where going all out was the only way to go. Texas Poker Supply will keep you on your toes with a high roller casino room while the folks of Bobalu Cigar Company hand roll you some of their finest cigars. And if you don't smoke cigars, they will look great along with a few Mad Men era accessories in the Mad Men Green Screen photos that will be an added party favor.

While the fashion police will not be on active duty, here are a few tips on what to wear to the event. Women's fashion is always more fascinating and versatile than men's attire. (Sorry guys)! Women can wear designs such as the miniskirt to babydoll dresses or pencil skirts and blouses. Accessories define the look you are opting for. Wear pale lipstick (not lip gloss), heavy black mascara or fancy a pair of false lashes. Red nails are the way to go and if you can walk in stilletos-go for it. The small black purse is a must for any of the looks you want to achieve. Be comfortable, be you and have fun while going back in time when people had a party that kept the town talking for weeks.
Men- do not feel left out. You have some options. Wear either a black, grey or brown suit. Thin ties are the way to go and to keep with the theme and the cold Austin weather, put on your wool coats and remember your Madison Avenue scarf.
Advance ticket sales are $50(single) and $80(couple). Door ticket costs are $60(single) and $100(couple). I suggest that you save the $10 per ticket and get your advance tickets now. For more information, contact Andre@SocialGravyPR.com
As if this Mad Men extravaganza is not enough, there is a VIP AFTER PARTY at Méduse Lounge on Congress above Copa Bar after the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, NSIDE Austin & Social Gravy PR Mad Style Winter Soiree event at the Austin Scottish Rite Theater. See you all there. You don't want to miss out on the best party of the year in Austin. I didn't think so.
