The Westgate Hotel is proud to invite the sophisticated and literate readers of Almost Factual News to celebrate the coming of the New Year in the manner of what Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald called "the most expensive orgy in history": the Jazz Age.

"Jay Gatsby was a false identity created by a poor boy who was willing to flout the law in his effort to amass a fortune obscene enough to win the heart of the rotten little rich girl who broke his heart," says Westgate Events Director Wendy McHenry.

"We think Gatsby's combination of dishonesty, delusion, corruption, and greed makes him the ideal representative for the 1% who can afford an evening of fine dining and entertainment here at the Westgate."

The evening will feature an extensive wine tasting and complimentary champagne all night, a suitable indulgence for those who have discovered that "young liquor will take the place of young blood." There will be dancing, of course: "old men pushing young girls backward in eternal graceless circles, superior couples holding each other tortuously, fashionably, and keeping in the corners."

By midnight, the hilarity will have increased, and champagne will be served in glasses bigger than finger-bowls. Don't miss out - it's later than you think, and we all remember that the Jazz Age ended with the onset of the Great Depression!
