MetroLink Prom is officially returning for its 6th year! This year’s theme is celebrating our light rail system’s 20th birthday. Born in 1993, MetroLink is too young to remember cultural high points like Saved by the Bell, but that won’t stop us from celebrating the 1990s at this year’s MetroLink Prom!
Please show up in your finest recycled 90s formalwear and hairdos. If possible, go for a 1990s grunge look. (See below for a “revivial” take on 1990s Grunge).
As for the details, we’re still hashing them out (we do have a month until the day, after all), but here are the basic details below!
WHAT: 6th Annual MetroLink Prom
WHO: All lovers of mass transit, formalwear, and the 1990s
WHEN: Saturday, October 19th, 2013 at 7 p.m.
WHERE:Meet at the Central West End MetroLink Station at 7pm
HOW MUCH:A two-hour Metro pass ($3.00) – Purchase your own, please!
We will have a rooftop after-party at the Olin Residence Hall overlooking the Central West End MetroLink Station after we crown our Prom King and Queen!
As a reminder, dressing to the theme is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL and you will not be judged for going your own way. Also, since the trains tend to be quite full for the Prom, we don’t expect you to be break-dancing or slow-dancing with your honey—so PLEASE do not skip the Prom because A) you can’t dance or B) you have no date. Not a big deal. Seriously.
Get excited, and get ready to celebrate MetroLink’s “almost legal” 20th birthday!
