Ah, the 80s.
Cola Wars. Donkey Kong. Reaganomics. Back to the Future. “Family Ties.” Flashdance. Footloose. Fame. The Brat Pack. “Where’s the Beef?” The Official Preppy Handbook.
Break out the leg warmers and the Aqua Net, the Downtown Little Rock Partnership is hosting an 80’s Mall Party on Saturday, July 13. Presented by Smirnoff, this retro event and celebration of all things 80’s will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in the old Main Street Mall, a time capsule from thirty years ago.
The 80’s Mall Party will feature a special appearance by Marty McFly and Doc Brown’s DeLorean. Slick’s grill will be serving up burgers and fries, and there will be a lip sync contest for those who want to strut their stuff. In addition to kitschy and delicious adult beverages, guests will enjoy great music and music videos, a retro arcade, fun surprises, and a throwback atmosphere sure to bring back memories and create new ones.
Tickets are $20, and VIP Tickets are $40. VIP Tickets grant access to the Rock City Kicks Lounge, two drink tickets and food from Samantha’s Tap Room and Wood Grill. Must be 21 or older to attend. The media partner is AY. The radio partner is The Point 94.1.
So, in the words of Robin Sparkles, “Let’s go to the Mall.”
