The 2018 Gaslight Gala

We are delighted to present the 2018 Gaslight Gala, open to all Sherlockians, regardless of age, scion/society affiliation, previous experience, or Canonical knowledge.   The theme this year will be “Fear and Loathing in Victoria’s London,” so join us for an evening that mingles our love of the Sherlockian Canon with a good dose of humor and friendship.  (And perhaps a nod to Hunter S. Thompson.)  It is our privilege to carry on the tradition of the Gaslight Gala, and we look forward to seeing you there!

The 2018 Gaslight Gala will be held on Friday evening, January 12, 2018 at:

Social Bar & Grill – 795 8th Ave at W. 48th St. (site)

The cash bar will open at 6:30, with the program starting closer to 7:00. There will be a buffet dinner.  Seating will be a mix of tables and bar high-tops.    If you have special dietary needs please contact Carla Coupe at carla.coupe@gmail.com.  Please note we will be on the 2nd or 3rd floor and there is NO elevator at this venue, however the stairs and rails are sturdy and there will be younger Sherlockians to offer assistance.
