The thing about attending a decade-specific theme party in this day and age is that unless you really go overboard, your costume could easily be mistaken for a stab at modern-ironic hipster fashion. Thats why you need to set the cheese dial to max vom before heading to the First Annual Cheesy 90s Homecoming at Respectable Street (518 Clematis St., West Palm) whether you choose to go Urkel, Blossom, Cobain, or Luke Perry.
If everyone does his job, the mix of goth, grunge, gangstas, and Valley girls ought to be nauseating. Though, if the fashion alone isnt enough to have you spewing lines from Waynes World, Dumb and Dumber, Pulp Fiction, and My So Called Life, the $3 Zima shots and $3 Bud Ices vibrating in your stomach as the DJs pump hits like Unbelievable and Ice Ice Baby will have you hurling references for sure. If you need further incentive to dress the part, know that you may win a prize if your outfit is totally awesome. Admission is free, and the party starts at 9 p.m. Call 561-832-9999, or visit respectablestreet.com.
