our next event!

In anticipation of February’s Academy Awards, we’re throwing our first Golden Globes Screening Party at littlefield on Sunday, January 6!

For you early birds we’ll be starting with the E! red carpet coverage at 6pm, leading up to the awards ceremony hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg projected on the big screen.

The Golden Globes may be the low-budget version of the Academy Awards, but we’ll still give you a free glass of champagne (with RSVP here) upon your arrival, and littlefield’s full bar will have themed-drink specials all night. Hungry? There’ll also be food available for purchase from sister restaurant Parklife’s in-house taqueria, El Atoradero.

And because it’s really anyone’s guess who the globes will go to, in lieu of a ballot we’ll have bingo cards to play along with during the show.
