The first people to successfully paint the town red spent more time haphazardly assembling scaffolding and arguing over who got to be the foreman than enjoying the results. Take the planning out of carousing with today's Groupon: for $35, you get admission for two to 2nd Chance Prom at Statler Towers on October 15 from 7 p.m. to midnight (a $70 value).
Benefiting the Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo with a portion of the proceeds, the 2nd Chance Prom opens up the historic Statler Towers for well-dressed guests who bust time-warping moves to classic tunes. Reliving high school's most memorable moments, revelers dance the night away to DJ Sweetz' prom-night soundtrack and light show before grabbing a date and striking yearbook-worthy poses for a professional photographer. Mingle your way to the cash bar, where alcoholic punch, mixed drinks, and beers quench thirst and lend the courage needed to ask for slow dances or to partake in the traditional interpretive dance-off that determines the prom's king and queen. Hors d'oeuvre-toting waiters quell hunger uprisings throughout the night, and when the clock strikes midnight and a balloon drop marks the magical evening's end, dates scurry off with their air-filled souvenirs before their carriages morph back into pumpkins and the bartenders are revealed to be ordinary field mice.
With a 2nd Chance Prom ticket in hand, guests can purchase or rent their swanky ensembles from the event's sponsors; prom princes and princesses are entitled to discounted limo service, formal dresses, tuxedo rentals, and boutonnieres available with and without seltzer-squirting capabilities.
