The museum of cartoon art hosts a unique fundraiser this Saturday — and perhaps one only this venue could get away with.
Guests are encouraged to show up as their favorite character, whether superhero, movie or TV personage, anime entity, stormtrooper or furry. It’s ideal for anyone looking for somewhere to play dress up between the last comic-con and next Halloween.
The party’s at Downtown’s Tilden Lounge. Prizes and trophies will be awarded to costumed attendees in multiple categories.
There’ll also be a live DJ, silent auction (for items including character costumes, original art, tickets to activities around town and more), light hors d’oeuvres, cash bar and “specially crafted Super Shots.”
Attendees must be 21 and over (and sorry — you’ll have to unmask at the door for the ID check).
The costume party starts 8:30 p.m. at the Tilden Lounge. Tickets are $20 and available here or at the door. A $50 VIP ticket gets you in for mingling at 7:30 p.m.
Tilden Lounge, a private club, is located at 941 Liberty Ave., two doors down from Toonseum.
