The biggest, bestest party of the year is a few weeks away. The countdown to Hugh Hefner’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Party on August 2, 2014, has begun. Tick, tock, tick, tock. Get your fairy wings and pixie dust ready because fun is on the way. If you want to see Jamie Foxx in pajamas, this is the event for you. It’s the ultimate summer celebration and blowout party. By August, everyone has had enough fun in the sun. Fortunately, Hugh understands that we can all stand a little more fun after the sun goes down.
This Playboy Mansion party is an orgy of excess. There’s live music, dancers, acrobats, performers and an endless parade of ladies and Hollywood stars. Oh, and an open bar. There’s plenty to imbibe and more than enough to shock all of your senses. It’s one of the only places where you can see the complete spectrum of Hollywood in one place. Actors, directors, comedians, musical personas, more comedians and anyone who’s anyone will be there. Who might you encounter on this most magical of nights? Folks like Jon Lovitz, Charlie Sheen, Kevin Connolly, Mini Me, “X-Men” director Brett Ratner and funnyman George Lopez are known fans of this wild party. Of course, Mr. Hugh Hefner, the fairy king Oberon of the party, is bound to be there chatting with his favorite celebs and ladies, including Crystal Hefner, fairy queen Titania, and all the ladies of the mansion. Maybe Crystal will even show off her mad DJ skills.
Despite all this tantalizing fun, here’s the best part. You can just walk up and say hello to any star who tickles your fancy. You could even compliment him/her on their choice of pajamas or lingerie, although time has proven that the guys are more likely to go the pajama route. The party is also filled with Puck-like sprites who cast a magical spell of the mansion and the infamous “Grotto.” Between the Cirque du Soleil-style acrobats, body painted amazons and crazed ambiance, this is more fun than Robin Goodfellow or Shakespeare himself could imagine.
If you missed last year’s event, make 2014 the year that you attend the Midsummer Night’s Dream party. This mad, mad spectacle will make it seem like you’ve never partied before or since. Get that body stocking out of the closet. You’re going to need it. Come on, when else can you park on Hef’s front lawn? You just need a ticket, and we have plenty of those.
