New York, Aug 6 : For the first time, tickets to the prestigious annual Midsummer Night's Dream party at Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion are being sold.
The sale will start from August 9th, 2008.
In the past only Playboy founder Mr. Hefner's personal friends, A-list celebrities and of course the world's most beautiful women were invited to the lingerie soiree.
But, now the tickets to the 'paradise' are being sold to any one.
"In the past, only Mr. Hefner's personal friends, A- list celebrities and, of course, the world's most beautiful women were invited," the New York Post quoted a source, as saying.
"Now tickets are being sold to any Joe Schmo willing to cough up cash," the source added.
The attire for the 1,000 guests is, as usual, "lingerie and pajamas."
A Mansion rep said, "From time to time, we allow a limited number of guests to purchase the opportunity to come to a Playboy party. Sometimes it's for charity and sometimes it's not."
