Virginia Brewery Plans ‘Stranger Things’ Party
Grab your bikes, your best friends and all the awkward tweenage angst you can muster — a Virginia brewery is co-hosting a Stranger Things party, and it’s going to be the biggest thing since Eggo’s.
O’Connor Brewing Co. in Norfolk is joining with Alchemy Underground for the Hawkins Snow Ball 1984: The UpsideDown NFK Returns. That’s right. The party is taking a page straight from the Netflix phenomenon’s second season finale to go all out for a Snow Ball dance — the same theme of the school dance Mike and company attend.
By the looks of the invite, O’Connor and Alchemy have this party planned to a T. First, be prepared for the 1984 junior prom dress code (I’m 98 percent sure my purple dress with a big gold bow is in a closet at my parent’s house. Score!).
The music list is on point with 80s music, the show’s soundtrack, and live appearances from DJ Demogorgon and 11:11. You can also expect Stranger Things-inspired drinks and decorations. (There *has* to be a wall of blinking Christmas lights, right?!)
If dancing all night or hanging out on the bleachers à la 6th grade still isn’t your thing, there are a ton of other activities to woo you to the Snow Ball. Check out the Ceremonial Shotgun 4Barb (#JusticeforBarb), be a part of the costume contest, or [Season 2 SPOILER ALERT] grab a tissue and pay your respects at the Hawkins AV Club’s memorial to Bob. We also wouldn’t be surprised if an impromptu D&D session broke out.
This party is set for Friday, Dec. 8 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and the brewery says tickets are going fast — faster than Steve’s can of Farrah Fawcett hairspray. Tell your friends and get ready to go back to the UpsideDown.
