Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy magazine recently celebrated his 86th birthday. To mark the occasion, the mogul hosted his annual Casablanca Night party at the Playboy Mansion where he was the guest of honor.
On Saturday, the Mansion’s Casablanca Night party was held in honor of the man who made Playboy come to life – Hugh Hefner. To celebrate his 86th birthday, Hefner was feted with a special birthday cake featuring his face superimposed on Humphrey Bogart’s body on a poster for the 1942 movie.
Hefner said, “Casablanca Night is a very special night at the Playboy Mansion – screening my favorite film on my birthday weekend. We dress for the occasion and after the film, my closest friends, my girls and I share champagne and caviar by candlelight in the dining room, that is converted into Rick’s Café.”
The Casablanca Night has been a yearly tradition at the Mansion for the past 20 years.
