It's easy to come up with the perfect evening for two—just imagine your perfect evening alone and then double it. Pair up with this GrouponLive deal to the Adult Prom featuring Bad Rabbits, Michael Firestone's Smooth Criminal tribute show, and Peanut Butter Wolf at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. For $40, you get two tickets for general admission on Friday, July 6, at 9 p.m. (an $80 value).
Under the Biltmore Bowl's crystal chandelier, the third-annual Adult Prom upgrades high school formality to a 21+ party and substitutes the gym teacher's MP3 player for an unparalleled lineup of live acts. Bad Rabbits bring a big-voiced funk infused with hip-hop vocals and strains of heavy-rock guitar that sounds like a throwback even while forging a new genre. The King of Pop's role fits Michael Firestone like a single sparkly glove, as the Michael Jackson tribute artist delivers pitch-perfect vocals, dazzling costume replication, and all of Jackson's suggestive moves. VJ Peanut Butter Wolf keeps the party moving with a hypnotic multimedia show layered with his jazzy breakbeat. Just like last year's prom at the Historic Fullerton Ballroom, a complimentary photo booth will be on hand to immortalize the evening and track the king and queen's rise to power before their midnight crowning and immediate tax-law changes.
This grown-up gala stays true to its pledge to "keep it classy," requiring semiformal or formal attire to suit the Millennium Biltmore's refinement. In Spanish-Italian Renaissance style, the ballroom's intricately carved marble statues reflect the glint of gold-leaf ceilings, and red-velvet drapery absorbs a rich rinse of light piped in from local solar farms daily. Since the hotel's opening in 1923, it has hosted eight Hollywood awards banquets, was chosen by then-nominee John F. Kennedy to host the Democratic National Convention, and provided The Beatles with an emergency helicopter pad when their fans swarmed the surrounding city streets.
