Cleopatra’s Feast

She makes hungry

where she most satisfies.

Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra 


Like this Powerful Goddess, Cleopatra’s charms went way beyond beauty.  She had a keen intellect, a theatrical sense of style, and a force of character that rendered her presence irresistible. She knew how to make an indelible first impression, a grand entrance designed to weaken the knees of an audience of one or of the entire town. Even before email and despite stiff competition while her lovers traveled far and wide enduring mortal danger to expand her queendom, she new how to stir the pot of fun to keep her man coming back for more.

What ideas does this legend inspire for an extraordinary Thanksgiving feast? Present your beloved with your glamorous Powerful Goddess Cleopatra portraits before wrapping yourself in bandages like a mummy.  Let him unwrap you with his teeth, licks and kisses required for each exposed part. Use the bandages to blindfold and tie him up later.

Gobble gobble!

Queen Of The Night

The whole point

of being queen

is to be original.

Freddy Mercury


“Say Yes to everything!” is fair warning and the only way to make the most of any experience, yes?   At Queen of the Night, Broadway’s cabaret of connection and seduction, you’re immersed in dance, performance theater, circus, magic and bacchanalia, with dinner that makes a grand entrance from the stage. Say Yes when performers want to sit on your lap, invite you to who knows what or where, or dance on top of your dinner table.  Say Yes to teasing, touching and being spoon fed dessert.  And if you can’t say Yes to the roasted suckling pig on a spit, lobster served in birdcages, or the most delicious ribs, just ask for their vegetarian table.

Queen of the Night is on limited engagement until December at the Diamond Horseshoe Theater of the Paramount Hotel.  Plan a different holiday celebration with the ladies, fun couples, or make new friends when you get there. Appoint yourselves Queens of the Night by adding bling and fur to that long dress that’s been sitting in the back of your closet!
