THE 80S ARE OVER
George Orwell couldnt have seen this coming. In 1993, Chip Duckett founded 1984, a party accented more by Madonna than Orwells dystopic predictions for that fateful year. Except for the Friday after 9/11, the weekly party has run nonstop for 18 years, 17 of them at the Pyramid Club. But tonight, 1984 will shut its doors forever on the year that gave us the Macintosh computer, crack, and Do They Know Its Christmas? So don your best Molly Ringwaldwear and say a happy goodbye. Said Duckett: Considering that 1984 has lasted almost twice as long as the 80s themselves, it has been a great run.
