Party throwers par excellence Gemini & Scorpio riff on Truman Capote's legendary 1966 masquerade, adding a dash of daring with aerialists, a soupçon of swing music courtesy of a 13-piece orchestraand, via a bevy of burlesque artists, a pinch of bottom to the writer's original recipe. Thankfully, free-flowing champagne remains (for the first hour). Don't think that this update means you can arrive in your modern duds; formal, ideally elaborate, dress will help guarantee a swift entrance (although ragamuffins can wait until after 2am, when the dress code relaxes).
