Basically, if you are planning a hoity-toity dinner party and need that extra oomph, this faux hipster couple will be your lifeline. Together, Vicky and Lysander speacialize in so-called “interactive parties.”

Here’s more from Grand Opening:

The mustachioed Lysander and his “girlfriend” Vicky will greet you as your age-old friends who are just having you over for dinner, and proceed to do whatever you want—spur stimulating dinner conversation or create an evening of frivolity that may include Pictionary, a “Purple Rain” dance party or some amateur fortune-telling.
