For my bachelorette party (back in 2008) we decided to go to the Awesome 80’s prom. For those of you who have never heard of it, let me explain.
Imagine you’re at the prom, but instead of everyone from HS you can’t stand, there’s Ducky, Jake and a bunch of hotties from movies like Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. The only bad part of the night–wearing an actual 80’s prom dress.
At first, my soon to be sis-in-law thought it would be fun to really get into the 80’s spirit. Hence, the horrible dresses above (except for far right girl–she boycotted). Well, we got a free train ride in, had tons of people stare at us and almost got into a fight in Penn station because some girl was talking smack about our outfits.
The show is interactive. You’ll laugh, dance your butt off and have a super uber time. I highly recommend it to everyone, but don’t make the mistake of wearing what I did (ugly pink dress). After the show, Webster Hall opens up and it’s a club. You can imagine our surprise. We quickly ran into the bathroom and began ripping out shoulder pads and slicing the lengths of our gowns with a bic razor blade (don’t ask).
