In 1999, Mark Zuckerberg was only 15 and still had yet to think up his Internet plan to nuke face-to-face communication while Britney Spears had everyone in a zombie trance with her “ . . . Baby One More Time” music video. Yeah, we lived in innocent times back then—so, could you really blame us for wanting to Party Like It’s 1999? The Bell House hosts the ’90s-inspired dance party, featuring the sounds of TLC, Pearl Jam, Destiny’s Child, and other nostalgic jams. Bring a photo of yourself from that era (big hair, grunge flannel, and all) and enter to win tickets to “My So Called Prom,” which is happening in February. Who knows? You just might meet your future Jordan Catalano or Angela Chase.
