Get Champagne Drunk, Pose for Paparazzi, At Tonight's Hollywood Industry Bash


With so many television series being filmed in Dallas, we've become accustomed to BRT, A-List even those rah rah Making The Team gals dipping their pedicured toes in the nightlife pool. But what we forget is that all productions need to be produced, and those folks producing them either live in, or pop through Dallas, as well. Tonight at Winston's Supper Club you can indulge like an LA cocktail waitress with grand ambitions as you mingle with producer Brad Isaacs (Rosanne, King of the Hill, Undeclared, and the Larry Sanders Show) and Guy Shalem (Life of Leisure, Bullet, and Betty White's new "gotcha!," Off Their Rockers). They'll pull back the gel lights and give you some real talk about life in the industry.

If you get nervous around Hollywood-types, just ask Isaacs a few things from your "Rosanne Favorites" checklist: favorite Becky? (Original) Favorite Rosanne job? (Waitress) And favorite point of Darlene's awkward adolescence? (Flannel)

You'll nosh as well, and you'll do so in proper celeb fashion with a cooking demo/tasting by Top Chef's Otto Borsisch from 8 to 10 p.m.. Then digest a little live art as local skin decorator, Sharon Hodges, adorns models with her glamorous airbrushing. The whole thing goes until 2 a.m., so if you're an aspiring actress just go "method" and pretend you have nothing to do tomorrow but audition and lay on the beach. Tickets are $20 in advance and $30 at the door, but the $50 VIP pass gets you into the Private Champagne Room. Life Rule #27: Always shell extra for a private champagne room, unless you're at a gentleman's club.
