A Celebration of Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and Purim all rolled into one! 

If you like to dance but seldom get the chance, come to the Santa Monica manse, and dance, dance, dance!  If you’re into great food, partake of the jambalaya, red beans & rice, and bread pudding for Mardi Gras; Chinese chicken salad and orange chicken for Chinese New Year; chocolate cake for Valentines Day; and Hamantaschen for Purim, plus more!  If you like historic landmarks, come explore this private home which was originally built in the 1930’s as the multi-car garage and servant’s quarters of the Winnett Estate, whose owners were partners in Bullocks Wilshire! If you have children and don’t get out as much as you’d like, RSVP for childcare at only $5 per kid!
