If you’ve ever wanted to have a dance party at the Guthrie, tonight is your night. The Grandstand Dance Party hosted by (who else?) DJ Jake Rudh, is the the public event portion of the Royal Ascot Ball. Prior to the dance party are a bunch of dinner events that none of us can afford (tickets go for as much as $12,500 for a reserved group table!), but after all the fancy pants dinner stuff, the dance party allows the commoners in for a mere $25. This is part of a ball, mind you, so this isn’t a flip phone dance party at honey, but it should be a pretty great, glamourous evening. Plus, Boom Island will be serving up free suds for the first hour. 9 p.m., Saturday. $25. —EJ
