Miss This Party? As If!

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. That’s why you need to set the “cheese dial” to “max vom” before heading to the First Annual Cheesy 90’s 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 isn’t enough to have you spewing lines from Wayne’s 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.
