Great Gatsby Party

March 17, 2017 | F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby Party was everything I wanted and more. Thrown at the breathtaking Captiale it was a party so epic you wondered if Gatsby himself hosted it.

Here’s our story narrated by the one-and-only F. Scott Fitzgerald.

“Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can!” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald

“I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald.

“He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man.”

“It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life.”

“I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”

“The shows were broader….”

“…the liquor was cheaper, and the morals were looser.”

“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.”

“Life is much more successfully looked at from a single window.”

“The lights grow brighter as the earth lurches away from the sun.”

“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

Sad you missed it? Don’t be! Gatsby will be coming back next year. Sign up at to be among the first to hear about this incredible event.
