Zombie prom, Silent Disco
For many of us, club nights can become a bit of a drag. The problem is you can’t meet people if you don’t leave your house; unless you live in Melrose Place in which case beautiful strangers just show up to your doorstep, being all beautiful, and awesome and and what not. However, some clubs are over run with expensive drinks and super loud music which makes it nearly impossible to talk to an object of desire that may come your way. How can you be charming and screaming at the same time? The two ideas are diametrically opposed to one another! What gives, night time gods?
Well, Old School Square in Delray Beach has adopted one of the newer formats for the nightlife enthusiast suffering from this dilemma: Silent Discos. A silent disco is a disco where people are assigned headphones at the door and patrons can tune in to battling DJ’s vying for their attention. Or, they can take off the head phones and mingle with the beautiful people bellying up to the bar. It’s kind of a win-win.
What’s the happiest time of year? Halloween? Prom season? Maybe both? This year Old School Square is hosting a Zombie Prom. The theme goes one better by making it a prom from 1985; holy Hanna Barbera, so you need to get cracking on your costume! There will be a photographer at the door to be sure and get this moment down for posterity, as well as several rooms for people to mingle, dance or lumber around. (you know… Zombie stuff) This prom has DJ’s spinning all 80’s bangers to get the dead, teenage, valley kid in you moon walking across a blood stained dance floor.
Old School Square has plenty of events and workshops coming up if these two soirees failed to illicit squee’s! The Arts and Entertainment complex is just getting started dipping their toes in the water to bring a great time to Delray. A peek at their calendar of events seems to leave no group or activity wanting in the coming months. Leave your house, check out the real world; it’s where the people are!
Silent Disco is happening October 6 and every month from 9pm to Midnight. Tickets are available at the Old School Square website.
Zombie Prom takes place on October 20, tickets are available on the website and are $20/person.
