Have you ever wanted to just travel back in time? Maybe clink glasses with Jay Gatsby from F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic 1920s-era novel?
Well, raise a glass because on Saturday "Dardanella: The Great Gatsby Lawn Party" brought the Roaring '20s to Washington, D.C.
"Dardanella was founded in 2016 to bring historic time periods alive," according to the event's website. "What began as a gathering of 150 friends, vintage enthusiasts, swing dancers, and fellow compatriots at the iconic Plaza Hotel on 5th Avenue in New York City, quickly expanded to Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Chicago, and Nashville to produce a quintessentially perfect 1920s experiential picnic / garden / lawn party."
The event, "Dardanella," was named after a popular 1920s song written by Fred Fisher, Felix Bernard and Johnny S. Black. Ben Selvin's Novelty Orchestra first recorded "Dardanella" for several different record labels.
