It's finally March, and we're so ready for everything happening this month!
We're conducting an experiment on the FB page for Swing House: as you know, FB suppresses all event info (including if you've signed up to receive notification on our page!), in order to get us to buy ads. Well, we'd rather donate that money to worthy non-profits. So: RSVP here https://www.facebook.com/events/275164112896163 , invite your friends, and share on your walls, and for every 20 people invited or 10 people who RSVP, we'll donate $1 to Southern Poverty Law Center, our current favorite we haven't yet donated to in 2017.
Also on our Facebook: you may have seen our insane 150-comment thread trying to find a name for our (ahem) pop-up strip club party on 3/31. If you're curious, the winning name was "Saints & Sinners." We're producing the party for our sexy sister brand House of Scorpio, not G&S, so if you want any further info on it, see here: https://www.facebook.com/events/446600772338076 (the HoS site will be updated sometime next week). You'll need to be officially approved with HoS to buy tickets.

Celebrating Pi day with...All-American PIE
Tues, 3.14 (Pi Day!), 7pm-12am, FREE / $12 for three pie servings Gemini & Scorpio Loft, must RSVP for Gowanus, BK address
Reserve your pie (limited): http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2885761 Details & RSVP: http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events.html FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/658372441037089 Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio
We tend to think of pie as a standard, round, applie-filled thing...and we tend to think of America(ns) in the same kind of generic way. But as this proud passport-holding Russian Jew refugee can tell you, "Americans" really come from all over the world, and our pies do, too. And nothing brings people together better than food.
We want to celebrate Pi Day with as many international versions of pie as we can get, from YOUR cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Who wants to bake (or buy) a pie of their heritage, whatever that may look & taste like (sweet, savory, any shape)? We'd love for you to be the first to get tastes of everyone else's pies, and then present and serve your pie to other guests. Message us!
Our historical chef, Rebecca Silverman, will bring something extra special Anna Cole - English mince pie
Angela Mauri - Italian chocolate salami Evan Morgenstern - Ukrainian pennik with apricots Jaclyn Atkinson - French-incpired espressio silk pie Jennifer Glick - German/Jewish plum pie (Zwetschgenkuchen) Nadia Rohrs - Greek feta tart
For anyone who can't contribute a pie, you can buy a $12 ticket for three servings of others' pies instead. Advance sales recommended, as pie availability is limited. We're hoping to donate a portion of sales & otherwise collect money for Southern Poverty Law Center -- TBC depending on how much we can bring in. If you don't want pie, come on by for free for drinks & conversation.

A classic speakeasy party in a secret Brooklyn loft, with live swingin' sounds by vintage jazz bands, blazing burlesque divas, exotic cocktails, and the best electro-swing DJs remixing and reinventing vintage grooves late into the night. "Gatsby-era fun with a twist of new-school vibe" (The Village Voice).
The night starts with an introductory dance class for swing basics by Brooklyn Swings, who teach at our loft every Monday night. Live music until 1am by The Blue Vipers Of Brooklyn: early jazz, swing and blues, with catchy four-part harmony, homemade washboard percussion and frequently bawdy lyrics. Burlesque fabulousness during and between band sets by Delysia LaChatte and Logan Laveau. Sweet remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.
And introducing: the gambling den! We're still working out rules, but expect two tables of Texas Hold'em going till at least 1am. You could win drinks and tickets to future events.
Dress code (required): The Jazz Age never ended, it just got funky. Dress accordingly: "An event worth wearing that ridiculous zoot suit for." - TimeOut NY; "Corsets and top hats tweaked with studs and leather are totally appropriate." - The New York Times. Suggestions: vintage (1920s-1940s) with a modern twist, cabaret, burlesque, Weimar Berlin, classic Hollywood, classy, sassy, tailored, hats, feathers, sequins, beads. Effort required. Dress code modern-friendly after 1am for the electro-swing dance party.
Tables: We have four tables with four seats each that can be reserved. Those tickets are sold in pairs for $80 ($40 ea).
