PHOTOS: La Valencia Hotel celebrates 90 years with ‘20s bash


La Jolla’s historic La Valencia Hotel threw a party nearly a century in the making, when it celebrated its 90th anniversary, Dec. 15, 2016 with a Gatsby-themed Gala. Proceeds benefited La Jolla Historical Society. For the event, guests were transported to the roaring 1920s, with the help of Prohibition-inspired cocktails, lavish buffets, vintage automobiles, flashbulbs and flappers. Attendees were encouraged to dress accordingly.
