HALLOWEEN IN FEBRUARY?

One of San Francisco’s most famous annual traditions is Donovan’s debaucherous Venetian masked event, in the spirit of Stanley Kubrick's "EYES WIDE SHUT" film w/ Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman (PG-13 for this event, of course).  Many playfully call it an elegant Halloween party in February.  Due to the tremendous success of the past 5 years of amazing events, the famous "MASQUERADE BALL: A Sexy Venetian Carnival Affair" returns this year better than ever.  Donovan is proud to announce The Masquerade Ball’s new elegant home at a 134-year-old historic San Francisco landmark that survived the 1906 earthquake:   


THE PAYNE MANSION
(Built in 1881) 
What better place to host an elegant Masquerade Ball than at an old, famous mansion?
And what better area of the city than the affluent neighborhood of Pacific Heights?  

  

The Payne Mansion is considered one of the most beautiful locations of domestic and Victorian-era architecture in the United States.  It just recently underwent a magnificent $3,000,000 renovation, transforming it into a high-end boutique hotel with modern, high-end amenities, while retaining its original charm, beauty and exquisite craftsmanship that makes this 134 year old building one of San Francisco’s most prized gems.

Due to the limited capacity of The Payne Mansion, this will be a much more intimate experience and highly exclusive event.  Tickets are extremely limited.  We do anticipate selling out in advance. It is strongly recommended you purchase your tickets very early in advance to secure your spot.   

What Happens Behind the Mask
Stays Behind the Mask...

   

This is a Venetian "mask" party, in the spirit of Carnival of Venice which commences in Italy every February.  Back in 1292, the original purpose of the Carnival of Venice was to serve as an excuse for people of different social classes to mingle and indulge in behaviors that might be otherwise deemed questionable, if not downright salacious.  The custom of wearing masks developed to protect the identity of the Carnival participants and empowering them anonymous freedom to partake in their most intimate of fantasies and desires.

The point of THE MASQUERADE BALL is to provide a sexy evening of 'mystique' & 'playfulness' for you and your friends to experience the freedom of anonymity behind the mask, leaving your inhibitions behind, and setting your wildest fantasies free.  So get in the playful, adventurous Venetian spirit and prepare for what is sure to be one of the most unforgettable & most tantalizing experiences of your lives...
   

COMPLIMENTARY VENETIAN MASKS PROVIDED
(Arrive Early for Best Selection)
However...
We highly encourage you to purchase your own unique mask so you "stand out" from everyone else and that expresses your own one-of-a-kind “alter-ego”.  There are plenty of wonderful costume shops on Haight Street in San Francisco as well as many wonderful online retailers that sell a wide assortment of Venetian masks for very economical prices ($10-$25).  See list of recommended Venetian mask stores at bottom of page.
