“THE CIRCUS ARRIVES WITHOUT WARNING …” On the last Sunday in January under a full moon, Center Court at Metrocenter Mall was w wmagically magically transformed into a night circus. More than 1,500 rêveurs, dressed in black, red and white, and many wild circus and steampunk costumes, marveled at magicians, jugglers, mime artists, whimsical art, lighted hula hoops and a burlesque geisha. Masked Servitude bartenders served wine from Kats and craft beers from Capital City Beverage. In the old Victoria’s Secret, revelers sampled blackberry cocktails by Cathead Vodka and chose sparkly outfits from the N.U.T.S. pop-up shop. They wobbled to D.J. Phingaprint, with sound by Nat Duncan, under huge red balloons and lighted palm trees as a big-mama disco ball twirled. The guests sampled food from two dozen local restaurants and cheered the winners of the 154 Best of Jackson awards before disappearing back into the night.
