Mela and Carolyn on the red carpet!The Inn at Monticello celebrated Oscar Night at the Paramount Theater on the Historic Downtown Mall. Dressed in our formal finery, and accompanied by our friends Alma and Mela, and Joyce and Ken, we posed for pictures on the red carpet, sipped wonderful Virginia wines, sampled exquisite food from Charlottesville's leading restaurants, and then enjoyed the awards show in high def on the theater's big screen.
This is the second year we've been to the Oscars at the Paramount, and we hope to return next year. Coincidentally, Randy Newman, who won the Oscar that night for Best Original Song ("We Belong Together" from the movie "Toy Story 3"), performed live at the Paramount just 2 nights later, which shows you the caliber of entertainment provided at Charlottesville's grand theater.
So, get your Armani gowns and your Tom Ford tuxedos ready and mark your calendar to join us for the Oscars in February 2012!
