It gives Gatsby a way to obtain his wealth. He sold liquor, and it made him rich. This was only possible through alcohol being illegal. Also Gatsby’s parties were so popular pretty much one reason: alcohol. People flocked to his parties because they were not only lavish, but flowing with free liquor.
“Let's Drink!” “We should party!” “Let's have the time of our lives!” This was the attitude of most people during the 1920’s. It was a time all about partying and spending money. The book, The Great Gatsby, highlights these concepts in many places throughout the book. This is particularly apparent when we are introduced to Jay Gatsby and his lifestyle in the beginning of the book. Many of the parties he held at his home were full of young, carefree spirits which the 1920’s are known for.
* * * * * I almost spent all night reading travel pamphlets and watching videos about visiting Las Vegas. Every trip that I go on I love researching fun places to eat, things to do, and especially the hotels. Online I found an interesting place to visit; it was the Strip. At the Strip, there is a 1 to 2-mile long zip line. There are various shops including many different restaurants ranging from BBQ to the Mediterranean to sushi.
When people think of California, most jump to Los Angeles and constant streams of traffic and Malibu with its Barbie Dream Mansions and celebrities tanning themselves on the endless coastline. Or, San Fran comes to mind, the streetcars and the start-ups and general “hipster-ness”. But, the real gem of the Golden State is San Diego, dubbed “America’s Finest City.” And after visiting, nothing else will ever compare. I would sell my soul for a lifetime supply of enchiladas from Casa de Reyes. It may seem odd to start off with such a specific point, but it’s true.
This can be done in many ways, one of the favorites being having a different wine to go with each moment of the day. This type of practice takes a special crowd though; a lot of people dont like being at an event where they cant just walk up to the bar and order whatever they want. If you decide to have a wine wedding that includes serving different wines throughout the day, make sure that the vast majority of your guests are people that you would guess would find this an interesting and fun practice. You can also have a wine wedding simply by choosing wine symbols as your favors and some decorations. A very cool wedding favor is a simple corkscrew with your names and the date of your wedding written on the
Gatsby always has colossal blowouts and they happen so often and are so sizable that people from all over New York show up. The book, portrays Gatsby’s party as this amazing, breath-taking scene with people all over the place and dancing and drinking, while the first movie is bland and doesn’t show how eccentric the first party is. The second movie, however, is bright, bold, eye-catching, and reels you in. While both movies left out the scene from the library, the second one makes a quick reference to it. Also, in the 1997 version of the movie, Gatsby summons Nick to a room to meet him, while that’s not the case in the book.

When disco arrived it changed a lot of things. It changed the kind of music people listened to; changed the way they danced and changed the places they went out to at night. The movie that made everyone want to disco was the ever popular “Saturday Night Fever” which came out in 1977. The movie soundtrack went platinum and the music was fantastic you heard it practically everywhere you went. If you are puzzled as to what I’m talking about then you missed out on an incredible time and if you are smiling and nodding then don’t you want to get up and disco once again?
We were having an adventure that day that only Southern California could offer. Fantasies came to life for us on a fairly consistent basis. Backstage passes to rock concerts - everyone had a dad who was someone, or, at least, knew somebody that knew someone. We’d go to extravagant parties usually ending up in the pool of the Bel Air hotel, not that the parties we attended didn’t have pools, they did
Owl Eyes who was studying Gatsby’s books, concludes, “Absolutely real -- have pages and everything” (Fitzgerald 45). Gatsby’s money was very real, and many people experienced it at his parties nearly every weekend. His parties were extravagant with music, alcohol, and dancing along with many other activities. According to “An Overview of The Great Gatsby” by Casie E. Hermanson, “Gatsby conforms to an ideal of himself that transforms reality into possibility” (Hermanson 1). He came from less money and managed to establish himself at West Egg with a mansion and the rank to support his love.
