The word "decadence" comes from the Latin root meaning "to fall," which sort of explains why it refers both to decay and the surrender to ultimate, immoral luxury. So keep the image of Venice falling into its own beautiful, dirty canals and party away with belly dancers, contortionists, opera singer José Iñiguez, shibari riggers, Gansango African dancers and drummers, Luminous Pariah the boylesque artist—and of course, lots of lush dessert from Lady Yum and gelato from Gelatiamo at the Marie Antoinette Dessert Bar (not sure what she had to do with Venice, but why not). There's also a costume contest limited to 75 participants and extra perks for VIP ticket-holders, including a raffle, macarons, a pasta bar, and a free photoshoot. Note: YOU MUST wear a mask.
