The ’80s were a tumultuous time in history characterized by blinding neon, the necessity of shoulder-padded suit coats, and the invention of teenagers. Relive its best moments with today’s Groupon to the Absolut 80’s Prom presented by A Snappy Event at Omar Shrine on Friday, February 3, at 8 p.m. Choose between the following options:

  • For $15, you get two tickets (a $30 value).
  • For $27, you get four tickets (a $60 value).

Local sponsors such as New Moon Pizzeria, Absolut Vodka, and Red Bull fuel the throwback jollification of Absolut 80’s Prom, where partygoers revel in nostalgia and tear up the dance floor until 1:30 a.m. A live performance by ’80s-inspired rock band Weird Science injects energy into the room with their hot licks and cultish adherence to the scientific method, whereas a DJ fills dead air with poppy, synthesized tunes. Friends can compete for ’80s authenticity between drinks and dances by flashing their neon leg warmers, teasing their hair to new heights, or being Corey Feldman. At the end of the night, two lucky guests will earn the royal status of prom king and queen and receive tickets to see Van Halen in Charlotte. Portions of the night’s proceeds will benefit Windwood Family Services.

A Snappy Event

A Snappy Event brings Charleston residents together for fun and food-centric events held throughout the year. The party-planning machinations started with the Mac Off, a no-holds-barred mac 'n' cheese cook off, and have spread to other cuisine-themed bashes such as sushi festivals, oyster roasts, and ground-beef food fights. The annual food truck hoedown beats back the February chill with satisfying food and a raging bonfire, while the Top Gun '80s party is held from the flight deck of the USS Yorktown.

This event was awesome! My friends and I had a wonderful evening aboard the USS Yorktown and will definitely go again next year!! Helping Kids Kicking Cancer is something I'm very committed to doing and events like the Top Gun Party are great ways to have fun, while raising money for a great cause! :)
