Oscar Viewing Party at Kimera in Irvine

What are you doing Oscar night? Kimera's holding their 2nd annual Oscar viewing party if you feel like dressing up and participating in a charity event. There's an $89 per person fee, which covers hors d'oeuvres, dinner buffet, one Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne Split, tax and an 18% service charge.
All proceeds from the silent auction and raffle tickets will benefit the American Red Cross. Also according to our source (tipster Craig Medici), Kimera just hired a new chef who's revamped the menu with more additions on the way, including a charcuterie station.
The flyer for the event this Sunday says "dress to impress" but I'm not sure if that means you can come in as your favorite character from the nominated movies. To be sure, ask when you call to make your reservation.
I doubt it will become an all-out cosplay, but I'm secretly hoping someone shows up as Neytiri from Avatar anyway.
