VIP Viewing

Of course you couldn’t help but blow a whole paycheck on that chic, silver, backless evening gown a couple of months ago. The calendar may have been casual-predominant at the time, but Oscar Night is here. Strut that dress and matching heels on the red carpet at the Conspiracy Room at the Uptown Theater (3700 Broadway, 816-753-8665) for a formal viewing of the Academy Awards, complete with complimentary snacks and prizes for best dressed. The night begins at 5:30. There’s no cover.
