2/27: Jumpback Ball at PlayhouseSquare

Posted By on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 4:02 PM

PlayhouseSquare Partners is a young-professionals group that supports PlayhouseSquare theaters and activities. And do they know how to party! Their annual Jumpback Ball, now in its 19th year, always features a colorful theme that unifies the activities and gives partygoers an opportunity to unleash their imaginations when it comes to dress (they refer to it as “creative black tie”). This year, the theme is Celebrate: Carnaval, honoring Venice’s fabulous signature festival — so an ornate mask is appropriate. Sammy’s will provide the Venetian cuisine, and cocktails will be served from a 3,000-pound, seven-by-12-foot ice bar. Meanwhile, guests will gamble for raffle tickets and dance to a pair of bands on the State Theatre stage. A VIP event, starting at 6:30 p.m. and hosted by acclaimed local chef Zack Bruell, will feature cooking demonstrations and food from his restaurants — Table 45, Parallax, Chinato and L’Albatros. The ball itself starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $160; all proceeds benefit PlayhouseSquare. — Anastasia Pantsios
