at a secret waterfront estate
SATURDAYS, APRIL 2017 - AUGUST 2017
PM - MIDNIGHT
We will whisk thirty accepted guests away from New York City to a secluded estate in the woods for an elaborate dinner, exotic cocktails, an elegant gift and an Illuminati initiation ceremony. Candidates will be returned to Manhattan before midnight.
Join us and discover the light of scientific truth.
At 6pm a luxury limousine bus will pick up thirty candidates at a secret Manhattan location. They will be transported to a stately hunting lodge located on a secluded lake peninsula one hour outside of the city. Champagne will be sipped while guests are briefed. Cellphones and bags will be collected fifteen minutes before arrival in order to protect the privacy and safety of all attending. We will provide each of you with a unique mask to wear for the evening.
Our Surrealist soirée includes intricate cocktails, mouthwatering delicacies, inspiring music, devilish dances and esoteric rituals. The first course will be eaten blindfolded to better appreciate the nuance of the food. Initiates will be taken to secret places inside and on the grounds of the estate by their kinship leader. A few lucky guests will sip cocktails while aboard the SS Charlotte.
Selected dates will feature Prodigy of Mobb Deep performing "Illuminati," a song he wrote for us featuring our opera singer, Katie Kat.
Illuminati Ball candidates may be involved in power struggles, morality tests, and anthropomorphic escapades.
When you purchase your ticket you will be asked to choose an animal kinship.

If you enjoy dressing to kill, this is the time to do so. Cravats, bow ties and ties are preferred, but not necessary as long as you wear a suit coat and a dress shirt. We recommend comfortable shoes. Flats, low heels or low-heeled boots will better serve your wandering. You will be outside for part of the evening, so please wear appropriate outerwear.
