411 on Mondo Lounge III
This is a pivotal year. If we can make a success of this year, it may finally be the annual event we always hoped it would be. SO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
For those unfamiliar with the Mondo Lounge concept… Our goal is to provide a fun annual immersive environment for aficionados of the Mid Century Modern Rat Pack era of style and entertainment.
SHAG is our official host of this weekend and will be there in person. We also hope to have several other special guest appearances that will surprise and delight you. The event will be filled with Rat Pack era music, good friends and an all around swanky time. The Las Vegas community is also supporting the weekend with several Mid-Mod related cultural happenings and tours as well. You will be wishing there were more than 24 hours in a day!
We have priced wristbands at $40 for the weekend to make it reasonably affordable for everyone to make it out. The wristband includes several perks including complimentary entrance to the Ghost Bar and the world’s only Playboy Club at the Palms! ($100 value by itself!)
The event will be held at the world famous Palms Hotel in Las Vegas . This upscale ultra-hip hotel has embraced the Mid Century Modern aesthetic since they open and we think it’s a perfect fit where our attendees will feel right at home dressing to the nines all weekend long. We will have discount rates for the Palms hotel. It will be released next week.
PLEASE DO NOT RESERVE BEFORE THE CODE IS OUT as it may affect our group rate.
We aim to offer attractive vendor prices for an event of this size. The idea is to get you here without a lot of overhead. The early bird pricing for a single booth is only $100!
COMPLIMENTARY EXHIBIT SPACE FOR SPECIAL GROUPS
We are offering a limited number complimentary exhibit spaces to special groups such as non-profits and other social groups and clubs (NOT vending merchandise) who are part of the Mid-Mod scene and want to get the word out about their activities.
If you are interested in making a special presentation about a Mid-Mod subject (fashion, cars, architecture, music, entertainment, cocktails, nostalgia, etc.) we will consider complimentary exhibit space depending on the level of your participation.
ENTERTAINERS and PERFORMERS
If you have an appropriate band or other act that would like to perform at the event, please let us know ASAP. Our schedule is pretty full, but there is ALWAYS room for one more talented person or group. We offer complimentary booth space for any act that performs at the event.
We are offering sponsorships in the form of advertising space in our program. If you are interested in supporting the event in this larger capacity, we will have our advertising specifications up in about a week.
YOU ARE ESSENTIAL TO THIS WEEKEND
Many of us long to revisit that old school Las Vegas vibe. And although many of the famous landmarks are gone, the spirit needs to live on… LAS VEGAS NEEDS THIS EVENT and THIS EVENT NEEDS YOU!
I look at this as our own personal “WayneStock” from Wayne’s World (without the naked Indian of course). We don’t have much time , but we have alot of faith in you… “Book it and they will come…”
So please gather your friends, arrange your flights, gas up the car, pack up your best vintage outfits and swinger shoes and take off for “Vegas baby. Vegas!” See you there.

BooksPad: The Guide to Ultra-Living
Maranian, Matt, Susan Tudor (Illustrator), Jack Gould (Photographer)
You have a futon left over from college, some dingy end tables that Aunt Miller left you, and an apartment whose carpeting dates back to the Me Decade. The decorating magazines and TV shows never seem to talk to you. So what? With some attitude, know-how, and a lot of your own style, your place can be transformed into a fabulous Shangri-La, a swanky venue fit for living and entertaining well. Pad: The Guide to Ultra-Living is filled to bursting with hip, affordable projects for every room in the house and shows how to use basics like lighting, plants, mirrors, and paint to enhance even problem areas.
The Book of Tiki
The official book of the world of Tiki. Do not enter the world of Polynesian pop without the sacred knowledge of Sven A. Kirsten.
California Crazy and Beyond: Roadside Vernacular Architecture
A hot-dog joint shaped like a puppy, an antique store replicating a Japanese temple, Van de Kamp's windmill-shaped bakeries, houses resembling beached boats these are just a few of the architectural curiosities featured in Jim Heimann's CLASSIC California Crazy & Beyond: Roadside Vernacular Architecture, an expanded edition, including 386 color and b&w illustrations, of his California Crazy of nearly 20 years ago.
Contemporary : Architecture and Interiors of the 1950s
Jackson, Lesley (Editor)
In the years after World War II, the theory-laden modern movement blossomed into popular contemporary design. Le Corbusier and Levitt, Brussels and L.A. reinforced concrete and Formica--all became part of a trend towards sleek, functional, pared-down design. This excellent book could have been a compendium of '50s architectural and interior memorabilia, and therefore a success with nostalgia buffs (who will also love it), but it is far more than that. Lesley Jackson has written an intelligent, entertaining book on the intersection of life and design in the postwar era. One of our favorite coffee table books!
Googie: Fifties Coffee Shop Architecture
A nostalgic trip back to the '50s and a look forward at the architectural future. This book is an all-time QUINTESSENTIAL classic and the standard by which all others are judged--a must own! It's out-of-prit so get one while you can...
Fiell, Charlotte, Peter Fiell (Editor), Simone Philippi
Sleek, stuffed, buttoned, or bent, in the den or the dining room, the chair is an indicator of its owner's identity. Chairs make up much of the interior landscape of our homes and workplaces, and a comfortable chair is considered a great asset in either location. A rigorous survey of the last 150 years of chairs, 1000 Chairs is a pictorial guide to the axiom "you are where you sit."
Blueprint for Modern Living: History and Legacy of the Case Study Houses
Smith, Elizabeth A. T.
One of Southern California's most significant contributions to modern architecture was the Case Study House program sponsored by John Entenza's Art & Architecture magazine. Between 1945 and 1966, thirty-six experimental prototypes were designed and the majority built. Featuring some of the most important architects of the region and generation--including Charles Eames, Craig Ellwood, A. Quincy Jones, Pierre Koenig, Richard Neutra, and Raphael Soriano--the program reflected the modernist goal of reinventing the house as a way of redefining living.
Mid-Century Modern : Furniture of the 1950s
Greenberg, Cara and Tim Street-Porter (Photographer)
This highly praised celebration of '50s design recalls the wonders of boomerang-shaped coffee tables, the funky curvaceousness of biomorphic furniture, the industrial sleekness of cool metals, and other design delights. Will undoubtedly foster a new appreciation of furniture from the '50s.
Palm Springs Weekend: The Architecture and Design of a Midcentury Oasis
Hess, Alan and Andrew Danish
Alan Hess offers an authoritative yet refreshingly nondoctrinaire view of the various ways European and American architects--some famous, some not--adapted the canons of modernism to suit the desert climate, landscape, and lifestyle. With evocative vintage photographs and an engagingly retro design by Andrew Danish, this is one of the most enjoyable popular architecture books in years.
Southern California in the '50s: Sun, Fun and Fantasy
Charles Phoenix has obviously spent countless hours researching this book. The amazing photos and memorabilia gathered here are priceless and worthy of more than a mere cursory examination. Where else could you see this stuff? His text evokes memories of innocent times we'll never see again. I'm giving this book to co-workers, family, and friends as holiday gifts. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't treasure this book
This book is made of the essence of modernism. All photos are taken during the original time period. It is a great lesson of architecture. This treasure trove will captivate architecture historians and mid-century modern design buffs. Shulman's slick, elegant renderings of buildings amount to an unusual and intriguing look at some of modernism's less celebrated works.
Books on Specific Architects and DesignersNeutra
Mac Lamprecht, Barbara
This luxe volume traces the entire career of the great Richard Neutra (1892 - 1970), whose work symbolizes Modernist splendor in all its glory. Highly acclaimed for his designs of California residences, Neutra is one of the most important architects of the century and well deserving of this stunning tribute.
Steele, James, David Jenkins, Pierre Koenig
Pierre Koenig (b. 1925) is a leading figure of the Modern movement in America, and a guiding influence in the "Case Study House Program". This is the first full study of Koenig's career, providing an unparalleled insight into the evolution of Modernism on the West Coast. Koenig designed and built his first exposed steel house in 1950. In 1957 he was chosen to design Case Study Houses #21 and #22. These houses have become iconic, capturing the excitement and optimism of the period. This book includes new and vintage photographs together with the architect's original drawings.
The Architecture of R. M. Schindler
Schindler, R. M. and Michael Darling (Compiler)
Intuitive and pragmatic, embracing the free flow of indoor and outdoor space, the houses designed in California by R.M. Schindler are among the most celebrated examples of 20th-century domestic architecture in the United States.
The Work of Charles and Ray Eames: A Legacy of Invention
Albrecht, Donald (Editor), Beatriz Colomina, Joseph Giovannini, Charles Eames, Philip Morrison
Published on the occasion of a major international traveling exhibition organized by the U.S. Library of Congress and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany (holders of the two richest Eames collections in the world), this comprehensive volume is a testament to the Eameses' belief that good design could improve people's lives. From the 1940s to the 1970s, the prolific husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames designed furniture, buildings, exhibitions, and interiors, and made films.
