Prom night: the pinnacle of life. Whether your date was super-popular, your best friend or cousin, or you went stag—or not at all (the horror!)—it’s time to make it right at Pretty in Pink Prom Night. It doesn’t matter if you’re from the wrong side of the tracks—or the Gowanus, in this case—create your prom dress, get stylish (prep or punk), pop in Echo and the Bunnymen, take a good hard look in the mirror before heading out, and—who knows?—you may even win Prom King or Queen and score an iPod Shuffle full of ’80s tunes. Special guest chaperones/hosts will be comedians Sara Schaefer and Dave Hill, with music by the Engagements. Prom photos are available, too. It’s like going back in time and creating the memories that were meant to be.
