Oscars Viewing Party at Rockit Bar & Grill


This year on Oscars Sunday I traded in my pajamas and pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food for a sparkly dress and hors d'oeuvres. What was the occasion? Rockit Bar & Grill's third annual Oscar's party co-hosted by film critic Richard Roeper and Chicago restaurateur Billy Dec.

The evening was held at Rockit Bar & Grill in River North and featured cocktails and Prosecco from Santa Margherita, as well as a selection of Rockit's amazing appetizers. In addition to being a great atmosphere for watching Hollywood's biggest night, the viewing party was also a fundraiser for After School Matters, a Chicago-based non-profit organization focused on creating after-school opportunities for local public high school students. An impressive raffle featured prizes including a team-signed Chicago Blackhawks hockey stick, two round-trip tickets on American Airlines, a personal fitting session and merchandise from Lululemon and even an icing class at Magnolia Bakery. I was lucky enough to win a pizza package with gift certificates to Sono Wood Fired and Homemade Pizza Company! Viewing party guests even had the chance to submit their own Oscar picks before the show started! Overall, it was a great way to take in the most exciting night in movies.
