The Lafayette Hotel’s 70th Anniversary – July 1
70 is the new 21
Friday, July 1 at 6 PM – 10 PM
Join us as we celebrate The Lafayette’s rich history and how it escaped demolition plans to be turned into a parking lot, and instead became a historic landmark! This event is FREE to the public as a THANK YOU for the last 70 years of support!
THREE VENUES for your party pleasure:
✦ The City Within A City – a throwback to the days when the hotel had over 20 different shops, stores, and services!
✦ The Home Away From Home – a cocktail lounge with a 1950s-themed USO Show!
✦ The Soda Jerk – a retro style soda fountain and diner offering your favorite old-time eats and treats!
♫ Musical entertainment provided by Euphoria Brass Band, The Rollers Beatles tribute band, and Sacha Boutros + guests.
✪ We’re building a Time Capsule!
Please bring something small to be placed inside of our Time Capsule. We named it Larry. Larry will be displayed inside the hotel for 30 years until he will be opened on our 100th anniversary! Items submitted must be smaller than a little tissue box or they can be paper items like photos, letters, posters, etc. All registered event guests will be contacted prior to July 1st, 2046 to remind them of the Time Capsule’s opening party. Date of the opening party subject to change.
♥ A portion of the proceeds will help support the USO.
The first 500 people to RSVP will receive a commemorative gift!
