Whip out your finest suit and dress and head to Afro Caribbean Socials’ Afro Caribbean Gala later this month. The sounds of the Caribbean will sweep guests off their well-dressed feet as organizers say attendees will rub elbows with members of high society.
The event is described as an “extravagant, upscale” event where formal attire is encouraged. However, not wearing it won’t prohibit entry. It’s expected that celebrities, big-name DJs, professional athletes and high-profile attorneys will attend.
Skulla Djs, a group of DJs and producers, will spin the best in a wide range of Caribbean genres, including Soca, Afrobeats, Reggae, hip hop, and Latin music. They’ll also take requests from attendees.
And don’t worry about mingling and dancing on an empty stomach, as a chef touted in the event description as “very creative” will have a variety of food options for attendees to enjoy.
The event, which calls for anyone who loves cultural music to attend, also encourages guests to arrive early to avoid the wait.
However, VIP tickets to skip waiting in line are available for $25. Guests can opt to grab five VIP passes and a private section for $100. Lower-priced ticket options are available for those who don’t want to get the VIP treatment, including $15 general admission tickets.
Afro Caribbean Socials regularly hosts events at Duluth’s Barnacles Sports Bar & Grill. The group is also hosting a Valentine’s Day ball that offers free cover to people celebrating a birthday within seven days of the love-based holiday. The birthday celebrants can get free cover for four guests, too.
