The first 80s-themed party probably took place sometime in early 1990. Maybe it was the Rubiks Cubes, the neon colors, or the slatted plastic sunglasses that did nothing to keep the sun out or maybe its because the 90s were so lame in comparison. Whatever the reason, brat pack rats everywhere have found personal validation in one soiree after another, and on Friday, Stage 84 throws its fingerless lace glove into the radical ring of retro fiestas with Like Omigod! Its an 80s Dance Party. From 7 p.m. on, DJ Kristen Knowles will keep your jellies moonwalking. But here at New Times, we have to ask, Why limit ourselves? After all, the 1880s were pretty rockin too. Nothing says 80s like a bustle and a parasol no matter the century. The party is free, and Stage 84 is located at 9118 W. State Road 84 in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-474-5040, or visit stage84fl.com.
