Champagne sparklers! Now that's the way to get a party rocking and that's exactly what Hotel ZaZa GM Spencer Lane provided for the costumed characters that packed Monarch Restaurant Saturday night for "Dancing in the Dark," the hipster hotel's annual Halloween bash.
Costumed cocktail waitresses paraded through carrying champagne bottles and fiery sparklers. That was the only spectacle that could top the antics of Lady Bunny, who manned the DJ station throughout the night. The drag queen's wicked commentary, hot music and stunning good looks (ahem) set the raucous tone.
Adding to the high spirits was the yummy "Ghoulade" cocktails, consisting of Belvedere Vodka with pineapple juice, pomegranate juice and Sprite.
While grooving to Lady Bunny's tunes, guest grazed through chef Jonathan Jones' party fare including truffled deviled eggs and lamb lollipops. Among those partaking of all aspects of this party scene were Aubrey Stuart, Ashley and David Birnbaum, Janet Rodriguez, Janet Ortiz, Crystal Romo, Maria and Mathias Loll, Tammy Nguyen, Vivian Nguyen and Lauren and Brett Patterson.
