Last night, the Huxley Ballroom was transformed into a speakeasy for our Great Gatsby Gala. Spirits were provided by the bar and Deep Eddy Vodka, with a bottle of their straight and sweet tea flavors at each VIP table. DJ Esso pumped electronic beats on the dance floor all night. Illusionist Joey Rios entertained with magic tricks until the party meshed with the Library Thursday crowd just before midnight.
