You've memorized the entire script from 80's classic Pretty in Pink (if, not, you need to get on that). You're also dying for a chance to don a tacky dress, stick a flask in your purse, and awkwardly dance like it's junior year of high school again but—alas—you're a grown-ass-woman. And grown-ass-women don't get to go to prom. Unless you live in Los Angeles, where one of the coolest event spaces in town, The Unique Space, lets you fully live out that fantasy.
This Saturday the John Hughes classic flick serves as the inspo for the 4th annual Fake Prom at the Arts District spot. Grab your Blaine—or your Duckie, as the case may be—and partake in prom portraits, a DIY corsage and boutonniere station, and an open bar included in the $55 ticket price (buy yours here). Just in time for Valentine's Day, the 9pm event is the perfect way to spend the weekend, whether you've got a hot date, or hoping to meet one.
