- $6 for admission for two to The Masquerade Dance Party on Saturday, January 30 ($10 value)
Attendees descend upon the Rex Theater dressed in their best masquerade attire at the Mardi Gras-themed dance party. Dressing up is optional, though the first 50 attendees will receive a free mask and the first 75 attendees will receive free Mardi Gras beads. Guests will enjoy tunes spun by a D.J. from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., while two cash bars will serve beers and specialty cocktails throughout the evening.
Every month, Impulse Pittsburgh puts on different themed parties for Pittsburgh's LGBT women’s community. About 300–500 women have shown up to each event, including a May the Fourth Be with You dance party and a summer beach party with volleyball and a limbo contest. Different venues host the events, and Impulse constantly throws new parties, such as 2016's first Masquerade Dance Party at the Rex Theater. And, to make it easier for singles to connect, party-goers have the option of wearing a color-coded bracelet that lets others know their relationship status.
