Take a Glimpse of the Gilded Age with
TROY — At the first ACE Creative Economy Mixer of 2021 (and since COVID!), the Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy will celebrate the unrivaled beauty, and economic value, of the Capital Region’s rich history. Participants will be among the first to be invited inside the stunningly restored Union National Bank space.
HBO representatives Bob Shaw, Production Designer at HBO, along with the Unit Production Manager, Michael Pitt, and Location Assistant, Michael Connors will be on hand to discuss why and how “The Gilded Age” production came to Troy in a group led by The Hart Cluett Museum’s new Executive Director, Starlyn D’Angelo. Bob Shaw is known for his work on The Irishman (2019), The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), and Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995).
Enjoy food from La Capital Tacos, craft beer from Rare Form Brewing, mingle with costumed characters, all while being serenaded with the deep lounge beat stylings of DJ Pat Diesel. Additionally, members of the Cafe Euphoria team, a soon-to-be downtown Troy destination, will be on hand tabling with their upcoming plans for a trans* worker owned and operated cafe/coworking community space.
After the event, we encourage folks to join the ACE Team at Nighthawks (located around the corner at 461 Broadway) for a $10 specialty gilded age cocktail interpreted by Troy’s very own Amanda Baker. Reservations are strongly encouraged if you plan to drop in for dinner but not necessary.
