Get Out Your Scrunchies: Cruel Summer 80′s Dance Party! 8/10

I rarely travel outside the Great Walls of Greenpoint, but I will make the exception and travel to the other superfund (Gowanus) for this 80s party on Friday night! Presented by two of the best Brooklyn blogs, The Skint & Brooklyn Based, it is sure to be a night of music that takes you back, “The Cure, The Go-Gos, MJ, Sheila E., Prince and Run-D.M.C.,” a live 80s band, cheap $6 cocktails, “The Bananarama, and The Miami Vice, plus the trashiest snack ever, Doritos and nacho cheese.” Get tickets in advance and use the code 1980 for half off!
