We can have one or go to an Oscar party.
That night, when I attended the Academy Awards at the Delray Beach Film Festival, where many talented and interesting people were doing the same, at The Blue Fish restaurant, I was able to see the winners on the big screen. The dresses of those present were more like the Oscars. The original dress is more beautiful than the other. I had a good time.
It reminded me of another event that I had attended a few evenings earlier at the Lakeworth Playhouse. The VIP party for Agatha Christie’s mysterious murder of Mousetrap went better than I expected.
Over the past few days I have attended several artistic evenings and they have all been magnificent. That was no exception.
After eating delicious food, I was lucky enough to meet some talented actors who helped create this funny and entertaining puzzle. If it were the Oscars themselves, I’d vote for a few. The performances at the Lakeworth Playhouse have always been a delight, the building itself, one of the oldest in the history of the Art Deco society in Palm Beach, Florida, is itself a work of art. Maybe next year we’ll have the next Oscar party.
