We're guessing you've noticed: Great Gatsby excitement is at an all-time high. With the movie premiering later this week, we're breaking out our most flapper-esque dresses, and turning up the jazz music.

While the food of the 1920s may have left something to be desired, the bites below are definitely worthy of a West Egg gathering. Whatever you do, don't forget the gin -- and enjoy the fact that it's no longer Prohibition!

I'm not sure if I read the same book as everyone else, but these Great Gatsby parties are sort of antithetical to the meaning of the book. I'm not passing judgment and I'm certainly not an ascetic, but this new trend is certainly hilarious.

I agree. Much better to call these "Scott and Zelda pre-October 1929" parties. This trend seems to be about finding themes for parties. ;o)
