Come sashay down the aisle at Winter Street Studios for "Ball n' Chain: 2013." Skip the vows, bypass the in-laws and raise a glass with the wildest wedding party in town, with fabulous costumes, a silent auction, libations, light fare, and dancing 'til it starts raining rice. Gala goers will enjoy entertainment by the Klockwork band, Houston Metropolitan Dance Company and surprise guests, and nibbles and drinks by Whole Foods, Silver Eagle Distributors and Dripping Springs Vodka.
"Ball n' Chain" will feature four different wedding-themed areas on the second floor of Winter Street Studios.
In the Vegas Baby! main stage area, partygoers dance the night away to favorite wedding reception hits performed by the eight-piece band Klockwork and take-in a special "Cake-topper" burlesque performance by Tifa Tittlywindks of Dem Damn Dames, strolling showgirls and the King.
In the VIP Bollywood Lounge, gala underwriters are treated to a Bollywood-inspired dance from The Houston Metropolitan Dance Company. From there, revelers take a turn toward the swamp in the Ode de Possum: Shotgun Wedding Hall, where they will be serenaded by Geoffrey Mueller's banjo, wonder at Elaine Bradford's mysterious masked critters or bet on their own favorite critter in the live armadillo races.
Guests can take a load off in the R-rated Bachelor/Bachelorette Lounge, which includes a rapid infused tequila cocktail bar and light bites provided by El Gran Malo. The area also features entertainment by DJ Grahamaphone, the risqué and one-of-a-kind wares in YET Torres and Zubi Puente's erotic Valentine Market, and burlesque performances by bachelorettes KiKi Maroon, Tifa Tittlywinks and Lady Lush.
