Well the remake of Prom Night is on the way, so I figured it would be fun for everyone to relive it. Maybe make it a party? I know I write a lot about parties and drinking, but then again, I am your Hollywood-based Movie Style Guy.
Might I recommend the gents rent a sweet tuxedo? And by that I mean the cheapest, most gawkish ones you can. Spend no more than $75 for the weekend! Ladies, I’m sure you all have some expensive dress you conned your parents into buying and have never again worn. Dust that off and strap on your heels. Bonus points if you actually go see Prom Night dressed like this.
Of course you will need to take with your the flask of cheap vodka and a quart or orange juice. I don’t condone driving drunk, so take a taxi, or run with the theme and rent a limo! Or borrow your daddy’s caddy and skip the pre-gaming.
For those of us not willing or able to indulge in prom like behavior, we can at least drink like it’s prom!
White Wine from a Box
Yes, the cool girl’s mom is totally letting you drink wine from a box in a red plastic cup, but only because you agreed not to drive. Pick a zinfandel and make it cheap. Also acceptable? Wine coolers.
Probably the first mixed drink many of us ever had. It brings back the memories doesn’t it? Now remember, it’s prom night, so double up! 3oz of vodka to 4oz or 5oz of OJ will have you singing Love Me by The Cardigans and slow dancing in no time.
Malibu Rum (Or Something Else Disgusting)
There was always that one bottle of liquor that never seemed to get any lower on liquids – because it was nasty. So of course you snuck a couple of drinks out of it. To remember those good times of you trying to be cool and nearly choking to death, taste some of the seemingly suntan lotion infused coconut rum, or if you haven’t grown up, sample some strong whiskey and then have a coughing fit, just like old times.
For added effect, you may want to drunk dial an old flame and sob openly into the phone about how great you used to be. But don’t freak out when her kid picks up.
Happy Prom Night everyone.
