Here's your chance to finally live out the prom re-do of your sock hop-obsessed daydreams, only with more booze. In a move that's quite meta, the epic party throwers behind Unique LA are flashing back to the past with their ultra meta Back to the Future-themed Fake Prom, which happens to once again fall on Valentine's Day (Saturday, February 14th).
The retro rager is taking over the hard-partying Unique Space in DTLA, which will be transformed into Hill Valley High's famous "Enchantment Under the Sea" dance. In addition to hitting up the open bar (with non-alcoholic options for the DDs), expect a non-stop soundtrack by the Flashdance DJs, photo ops at Smilebooth's 360-degree prom portraits, DIY corsage and boutonniere stations, and a live performance by "creative weirdo" Brian Morrow of Shark Pig. And yes, a DeLorean will be in the house.
Date or no date? The event will also include a Singles-Only Lounge for uncoupled partygoers in need of match-making. Get the full rundown of haps here and score your tickets for $45 (now including a "Single & Looking to Mingle" option!) right here.
