Marvel's much-anticipated «Black Panther» movie, the one we've all been waiting for in ever-increasing excitement, finally premieres on February 16 and the very next day, Saturday, February 17, we CELEBRATE.

Join Sarah Huny Young (AMERICAN WOMAN, The Root 100) and Damon Young (Very Smart Brothas, GQ), a.k.a. The Royal Youngs, a.k.a. your cousin's favorite cousins, and just a few (hundred) of our closest friends as Darkness Spreads from Wakanda to East Liberty. If you missed our Halloween party, this one will top that (and that one was popping). Catch the movie at 6pm with RuggedAngel Productions and then head to Ace Hotel to:

1. STYLE ON 'EM

Dress code: Dapper AF. African Diaspora Realness. Wakandan Royalty. Afrofuturistic. Afropunk. Afrogoth. Black Panther (or any!) cosplay. STYLE ON 'EM.

2. DANCE HARD

Afrobeat, dancehall, hip hop, house, and more--music from our GLOBAL diaspora. A trifecta of DJ excellence on the turntables: Buscrates + DJ Femi + Selecta. The sound system set-up is four-corner Impact Audio stacks--bass heavy and pristine.

3. EAT & DRANK

Grab some food from The Ace's lobby bar or The Whitfield, and enjoy the fully stocked bar inside the gym.

4. MINGLE

Bask in collective Black joy <3

5. WISH HUNY A HAPPY BDAY

...with bourbon

PLUS:
Drink tickets and other tokens of appreciation throughout the evening for the MOST stylish, unique attendees.
