Rock of Ages Reunion at Passion Nightclub; Wear Your '80s Best

Most people don't know this about me, but I was in Rock of Ages.

Sure, it's possible that I am merely a speck in the sea of unpaid extras in the final scene of this movie. But I did my part to make this mediocre movie happen. And then I reviewed it for County Grind, examining the 'round town locations. You're welcome Rock of Ages.

But there are so many other Fort Lauderdale folk that appeared in the film, like for real, and next week, they're reuniting at Passion Nightclub. It's being called: "the event you have all been waiting for." And have you?

Of course you have! The scene I totally didn't actually appear in was filmed at Hard Rock Live, so, to return to Hard Rock seems appropriate for this bash. This'll be a good time to talk about how you felt when Tom Cruise walked out on stage bare-chested, or when you pissed yourself in Alec Baldwin's presence. It happened to more than one of you, for sure.

They've got two musical guests, '80s cover band Project X and DJ Special K spinning stuff like Flock of Seagulls and "Like a Virgin" Madonna. And please dress accordingly... No one wants to see you in hipster gear. Tease your freaking hair, and wear it high. Get your neon pants on and bring your mulleted dudes friends. And then you must rock.

Rock of Ages Reunion, 9 to 11 p.m., on Friday, May 24, at Passion Nightclub, 5701 Seminole Way, Hollywood. Free event and free drinks till 9:30. There's a raffle. Visit Facebook for more information.
