LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Playboy will once again throw the most exclusive party in town during New Orleans' highly-anticipated Super Bowl weekend. The Playboy Party Presented by Crown Royal will be held at Jackson Brewery Bistro Bar on Friday, February 1, 2013, and promises to be one of the Big Easy's most talked-about events. The legendary evening will be hosted by 20 Playboy Playmates, with music by DJs Devin Lucien and Jesse Marco and special performances by B.o.B and Trombone Shorty.
With help from iconic whisky brand and presenting sponsor Crown Royal, celebrities, athletes and VIPs will be treated to an evening filled with Playboy sophistication and New Orleans-style charm and influence. A unique brass band parade of MINI Roadsters, Playboy Bunnies, models and VIP guests will kick off the festivities as it winds through the French Quarter and ends on the Red Carpet where a masked MINI Paceman will be on display. Once inside, guests will put on a Mardi Gras mask as they sip Crown Royal cocktails, have their palms read inside a MINI Countryman, enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres seasoned with Tabasco Original Red Sauce from celebrity chef John Besh, snap photos in the MINI photo booth, and enjoy the evening in true New Orleans style.
VIP guests will also have the opportunity to give back to U.S. soldiers by participating in The Crown Royal Heroes Project. Upon entering the party, celebrities, athletes and Playmates will be invited to stuff a camo-themed purple Crown Royal bag with snacks that will be sent to troops overseas after the Big Game.
Last year's "Carnival Mystique" event in Indianapolis featured a performance by R&B superstar Ne-Yo.
Celebrities, musicians and athletes in attendance at the Playboy party in years past include Kanye West, Jon Hamm, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Usher, Bradley Cooper, Maria Menounos, Aaron Rodgers, Chris Evans, Jessica Szohr, Shaquille O'Neal, LMFAO, Gabrielle Union, Kellan Lutz, Mark Salling and Tony Romo.
