Things kicked off at 10PM, with guests enjoying a late night with music by Ron Like Hell and Delabae, copious amounts of cocktails and beer…and whatever else they fancied.

The duo joined forces with Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe Herd to host the second annual screening of the 2006 film at LA’s Bay Theater. “It’s been so fun to see The Holiday viewing parties become an annual tradition for so many.
