I was looking forward Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby”, until I heard it was 3-D. Hopefully, this’ll get me out of my funk and into appreciating 3-D as much as Hollywood does. This version is sure to suck everyone in including me with amazing sets, costumes, actors, makeup and music. Sigh.
In honor of the movie’s release the Library Hotel in NYC is offering the “Great Gatsby” package which includes:
Accommodations in a Junior Suite overlooking Madison Avenue;
Two cocktails at Bookmarks Lounge;
Two tickets to a night of jazz at the Jazz Standard;
A literary tote bag featuring the cover of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel;
A soft cover copy of The Great Gatsby.
When you’re on the rooftop lounge, try the “Great Gatsby” cocktail. A play on the traditional Old Fashioned, it features Jack Daniels, Amaretto, Lime Juice, and Bitters and is garnished with an orange and a cherry.
The package is available May 10th through September 2nd, with rates starting at $469 per night with a two night minimum stay. For more information, visit www.libraryhotel.com/offers.html.
