Stars, red carpets, Ellen DeGeneres: The Oscars are here.

Here are some spots around town that are rolling out the red carpet this Sunday, March 2. The show starts at 4pm Pacific. Unless otherwise noted, so do the festivities. Know of any other events? Tell us about it in the comments section.

THE CASUAL

Tini Bigs
Cocktails and dining will both make appearances, along with a best-dressed couple contest, but the huge tv will probably be the star of the show.

Poco
Watch the award show on a projector with wine and tapas . Also gift cards can be won by playing Oscar bingo.

Fred Wild Life Refuge
Join Three Dollar Bill Cinema and Gay City Health Project for their 9th annual Oscar party. Watch the ceremonies with savory hors d’oeuvres and a fully stocked bar. Oscar contests and door prizes are on the list for the evening.
$35 per person.
 

Kells
For anyone who enjoys fueling their celebrity commentary with pints of Guinness and an Irish pub stew, the Oscars will be on the big screen. 

THE FANCY

The Fairmont Olympic Hotel
Silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar, followed by the Academy Awards with a four-course dinner and wine included. This might be the most elaborate celebration in town, and it benefits the Starlight Children’s Foundation Northwest.
$200 per person. 

The Triple Door
Join The Film School for its sixth annual Oscar party, where auctions take place during commercial breaks of the L.A. broadcast. Dinner and drinks will be catered by Wild Ginger. Oscar dress is encouraged.
$150 per person.
