Watemark To Open With A Splash

Watermark on Main VenturaI've got great news for fans of Kevin Costner, Ventura, CA area residents, and folks like me who have been waiting patiently for the Watermark restaurant to open in downtown Ventura. Former Ventura resident and Hollywood heavyweight Kevin Costner will be premiering his new movie, Swing Vote, in downtown Ventura this Saturday, July 26. Here's the lineup of events:

The Watermark and Kevin Costner will host a VIP fundraiser reception at 2pm. (If you haven't got tickets, the event is sold out.) The ticketholders will then hop across the street for the 5pm red carpet premiere of Swing Vote at the Century 10 Downtown Theater. After the screening (around 7pm or so), Costner and his band, Modern West, will perform for free as part of a street party at Main and California Streets.

If that isn't enough excitement for an evening in downtown Ventura, the Watermark is holding a preview reception for the public from 7pm to midnight, with a no-host bar, appetizers, and a tour of the painstakingly restored building. This event is first come, first served, and I have a feeling there will be a line around the block. Like many others, I've been waiting months to check this place out and I can't wait to enjoy the sunset and the ocean views while sipping an icy beverage at W20, the sleek new rooftop bar suspended above the restaurant.
