Eloping to Catalina Island? Then, make it Saturday, October 27, 2007. Why? Because that's the night of the Avalon Ball at the Avalon Casino Ballroom, sponsored by the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles. Dress in vintage attire (how about a vintage wedding gown?) and dance the Charleston, tango, foxtrot and other vintage dances, to the sounds of Mora's Modern Rhythmists Dance Orchestra.
Never been to the Avalon Casino Ballroom? Then you're missing one of the most wonderful art deco treasures in Southern California. If you have an opportunity to dance at the Casino, you have to take it. And, if you can't afford to book the Avalon Casino for your wedding, or are eloping with just the two of you, then the Avalon Ball is a cheap way to experience the fun and grandeur of the Avalon Casino. Tickets are $45 per person. Call 310-659-3326 for more information.
