80s Prom Night! Let's Party Like It's 1984!

For our next Swissôtel event, we're jumping in the way-way-back machine and will be partying like it's 1984. Relive your past fantasies (or anxieties), because it's Prom Night all over again. But this time we get to do it right.

Invite a date or go solo. For 2013, this year's Prom Theme will be Dirty Dancing's "The Time of My Life." And, when we're done spiking the punch bowl, you can be sure a Prom Queen and Prom King will be making their way through a balloon arch. Your vote counts.

This event is not attire mandatory, but most people are going all out. So, ladies, we want to see big hair, Susie's Casuals dresses, and racy gar

ters. And, guys, spray down with Drakkar Noir, break out those frilly tux shirts, and primp those mullets.

80s music all night long; small plates; $6 beer specials; $7 mixed-drink and martini specials; plus select wines, varietals to be determined. The Amuse will also be whipping up special 80s-themed cocktails. (But feel free to pre-soak with some Mad Dog 20/20 or Mickey's Big Mouth before you arrive.)

Fair warning, chess club members: there will be slow dances.

What happens after prom is up to you.

Cheers from your Yearbook staff:

Bryan, Tommy, and Katie

 

(P.S.: There will be a $5 cover charge for this, which goes into the Chicago Loop Happy Hour Group kitty to cover Meetup dues and wine for our Fine Arts Building events. Use the handy PayPal button or pay at the door.)

    To clarify, dressing in 80s prom garb isn't mandatory, but a lot of people are doing it up. Come as you'd like!

      Hi Mike - this should help... 1. The description of this event says "This event is not attire mandatory, but most people are going all out. So, ladies, we want to see big hair, Susie's Casuals dresses, and racy gar

      ters. And, guys, spray down with Drakkar Noir, break out those frilly tux shirts, and primp those mullets." 2. If you need examples of 80s attire/look someone mentioned 2 movies as a reference. 3. Tom posted hes wearing a suit. So it's really up to you : ).

    I would suggest watching Valley Girl and Pretty In PInk for Prom attire... But snce most of today's fashions are 80"s anyway, you should be able to find something.
