With the recent reincarnation of Scott Fitzgerald's classic on the big screen, The Great Gatsby has been popping up everywhere. And Fort Lauderdale's Green Room is no exception.

In addition to partying it up 1920s style for free, you can see art displays and burlesque performers while drinking champagne at no cost if you are in Gatsby attire. Not to mention, there's also coffee by Yoni Martin along with vendors and music by DJ Tonx and Jet Decklin. There hasn't been a party like this in decades. And that is something to celebrate, old sport.
