Salvador Dali Gave Truly Bizarre Dinner Parties

January 8, 2012

Perhaps unsurprisingly, legendary artist Salvador Dali gave lavish and truly bizarre dinner parties. This newsreel, from 1941, shows footage from "Dizzy Dali Dinner." The event raised money for European artists that had been displaced by World War II. It was held in Pebble Beach, California. 

Dali's wife was dressed in a unicorn's head and presided over the event from her enormous bed. Guests were given live frogs as a dish. You might also notice live lions and monkeys. 

A normal evening for the Dali household.
