The Monterey County AIDS Project holds it annual Academy Awards money- and awareness-raising soiree, Party with Oscar. This time around, they broaden the appeal by changing venues from the usual fancy hotels ballrooms to the accessible and innovative University Center, lowering ticket prices and upping the coolness factor. Campus Caterinig/Sydexho provide organic and local food; Whole Foods brings the green tea coolers (yeah, that sounds like Whole Foods), sodas and ginger beer; a big screen TV brings the Oscar proceedings to the fore; indoor and outdoor fireplaces provide a backdrop for your own dramatic/romantic scene; and a '50s dress-up theme and dance party adds irreverence to the whole affair. A "lovely sunset" signals the start of the festivities. [WR]
