    -UpStairs on the Square invites you to the “For Singles Only: St. Singles Day Party”—A Valentine’s Eve Late Night Party in the Monday Club Bar
    On Friday, February 13th from 9:30PM– 1:00AM for only $13.00 (or $14,000 .00 for couples) we’re holding our third annual sit-in/stand-up cocktail party in the Monday Club Bar to mark our own specially created “holiday” known as Saint Singles Day—a day that celebrates the freedoms of singularity and the ability to find mono-happiness without the tacky cards, flowers and chocolates.   We’ll have our libation liberation drinks priced in the “single” digits. Last year was a grand event, with singles of every age and persuasion dancing and noshing and celebrating singleness all together. This event sold out in a flash last year, so let us know you’re coming!

It’s the French Morocco during WWII and ex-pat bar owner Rick Blaine (Bogart) finds himself once again tangled in the web of his lost love, Ilsa (Bergman), when she arrives in Casablanca with her current beau, a French freedom fighter looking to get passage to America and escape the Nazis. Often imitated but never matched, CASABLANCA has a special recipe for success that includes a top-notch script, fantastic supporting players (including Claude Rains, Sidney Greenstreet, and Peter Lorre), and iconic star turns by two Hollywood legends.
