Get there at 7 and stay for the whole thing — you can win prizes if you get the most correct predictions of the night’s outcomes. The regular menu will be served, but in addition to that they’ve come up with best-picture-nominated cocktails. How about a Green Jasmine or a Dallas Imbiber’s Club? Matthew McConaughey would be proud!

Brooklyn Winery is making Oscar night special with The Paparazzi. Don’t worry; it’s not the actual paparazzi, just a gin and sparkling wine cocktail with St-Germain. Arrive at 7 — it’s first come, first served.

You may not be walking the red carpet, but you should still don your finest for this party, which is giving out best-dressed prizes. If you’re not the best dresser, are you the best guesser? Predict the winners and get prizes. There’s also free popcorn and cheeky Oscar trophies.
And one party you definitely can’t go to

This is the only official Oscar party on the East Coast, and unfortunately you’re not invited. Sorry! It’s just for the local members of the Academy. Maybe you can get a quick glimpse of the A-listers as Daniel rolls out the red carpet for this exclusive event.
