LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2013) - On Dec. 24, the city shuts down for most; but, Los Angeles Jews will hit the best party of the year. For the past 20 years, the premier event for the LA Jewish community has been SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA® sponsored by JDate.com, the leading online community for Jewish singles, and this year's event will be spicier than ever, taking over the revered Red O Restaurant for a sexy night of mixing and mingling.
Featuring cuisine by world-renowned chef Rick Bayless, this year's bash is kicking off at Bayless' Los Angeles hot spot Red O Restaurant, which features bold, dramatic décor and a sultry ambiance bound to ignite a hot party. Guests will enjoy delicious tapas, tequila tasting, all-night drink specials and amazing raffle prizes. When attendees are not busy schmoozing, eating or drinking, they can hit the dance floor and show off their moves.
"For the past 20 years, SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA has been a favorite tradition for the Los Angeles Jewish community," said Greg Liberman, CEO of Spark Networks, the company that owns and operates JDate.com. "SCHMOOZ has been the chosen place to be on December 24 for two decades and I expect this year to be the best yet, as we celebrate SCHMOOZ's 20th anniversary at Red O, one of LA's top restaurants with many exciting new twists."
As an added bonus this year, select men from the 2014 Nice Jewish Guys Calendar will be eye candy for the night and sign the coveted calendars for party-goers. Guests can even enter the SCHMOOZ-A-PALOOZA raffle for a chance to win a date with one of the Nice Jewish Guys. If guests don't walk away with a Nice Jewish Guy on their arm, in addition to the dancing and fine food, thousands of dollars in other prizes will be up for grabs, including a six-month JDate membership, one-year gift memberships to RocksBox, mani/pedis at Nail Garden, a pair of custom men's shoes from Left Shoe Company in Beverly Hills, a gift basket of courtesy of Veev, the world's first acai spirit, and much more.
