Sparks
Oooh! We hope there will be elephants.

The circus is back in town, with Clinton Sparks’ Greatest Party on Earth coming back to 1 Oak. We suggest packing 14 of your closest friends into a tiny car and piling out at the valet. It’ll really make that guy’s night. At least until all 14 of you tip him in cotton candy, anyway. Click for more words and pictures »

Do something amusing. Like wear stiletto clown shoes.

April Fool’s is not the booziest night of the year, it turns out. Apparently everyone’s afraid of exploding Martinis, or plastic snakes popping out of Red Bull cans or something. If you don’t want to spend the evening watching Netflix, your choice is 1 Oak. Otherwise, we suggest a comedy. Click for more words and pictures »

Nick Cannon, who we learned today can almost make a convincing white guy if he didn’t go just a little too overboard with the ginger hair, swings through 1 Oak during the Nightclub & Bar show to spin a set ahead of April 1′s White People Party Music. So … it’s just “Brown Eyed Girl” and three random Hall & Oates songs over and over again? Click for more words and pictures »

Stewardesses
Those people who insist everything used to be better aren’t necessarily wrong.

The overlap of aviation enthusiasts and dedicated drinkers doesn’t have to just be pilots anymore. 1 Oak tonight celebrates the launch of Red Bulletin, the magazine of the Red Bull Air Races, by inviting ladies to come dressed in sexy aviation-inspired costumes for free Skyy drinks until midnight. Why stop at Sexy Stewardess? Why not Sexy Amelia Earhart, or Sexy Alice Kramden (what with all the trips to the moon) or a Sexy Cessna C-145? That last one might only appeal to a very specific niche.

1 OAK KICKS OFF GREATEST PARTY ON EARTH

Sparks
There’s a DJ born every minute.

Clinton Sparks launched his new 1 Oak night, The Greatest Party on Earth, last night, complete with a drumline playing “All I Do Is Win” and some sexy clowns. You know what, circus-themed productions? Putting clowns in a bikini doesn’t make them any less terrifying. You can be terrified by things you’re attracted to all the time. Just look at Gwynneth Paltrow.

JENNY MCCARTHY LEADS ’90S CHARGE

McCarthy
He looks happy. (Photos by David Becker)

While Chris Hardwick was busy hosting the weepy, post-Breaking Bad finale, his former partner Jenny McCarthy spent the night before at 1 Oak with her new man Donnie Wahlberg. The couple were joined by her sister, Boyz II Men, John Stamos and Bob Saget. And then the ’90s collapsed in on itself in a series of endless, recursive Blossom hats lined up like a mirror pointing at another mirror, while the disembodied head of Steve Urkel cackled maniacally in the background.

Major Lazer is going kung fu fighting tonight at 1 Oak, where the marching orders are to come in costume. Does going in American Ninja Warrior costume count? It has to do with martial arts. In theory. Click for more words and pictures »

So, this thing is literally all about flowers, right?

We don’t know if you’ve heard anything about this yet, but there’s this festival called the Electric Daisy Carnival coming this weekend. It’s true! 1 Oak is giving away a trip for six (on a Speedway-bound chopper), with a table, to the industry host or hostess who brings the biggest crew. And will reward them by deeming most of them unfit for chopper duties. Click for more words and pictures »

And a hundred frat guys just all blew their loads.

The dreaded Red solo cup makes an appearance at 1 Oak tonight with a beer pong tournament that can score you a houseboat vacation on the lake. Also: Thanks for making this a thing, Toby Keith. Got any other already annoyingly fetishized things you’d like to write an ode to? How about dorm room Scarface posters? Got a nice C&W “The World is Not Enough” ditty in you?
