If you’re wondering who these two people are, the guy is a wealthy Italian, Gianluca Mech, and the woman is Karen Lynn Gorney – she was John Travolta’s leading lady in Saturday Night Fever. (She famously said no to Tony Manero.) It happens to be the 40th anniversary of the movie, and Mech is a superfan, to put it mildly. He spent $200,000 to duplicate the movie’s 2001 Odyssey Disco at exactly the same location in Bay Ridge, used in the movie. It’s now a Chinese restaurant, but Mech had a special lighted dancefloor built and redecorated the place for his party. He flew in 50 friends from Italy and invited anyone in disco vintage attire to join the party. Of course he invited the cast – Travolta didn’t show up, but Karen did, and Monti Rock III was DJ.
